5 After Midnight say they won't need Louis Walsh after The X Factor.
The guys are confident that things will "kick off" for them ahead of the semi-finals this weekend.
"Louis's not going to need to support us afterwards because hopefully things will just kick off for us," the guys told Star magazine this week. "We want to be managed by whoever believes in us, wants us to do well and puts us first."
The boys added: "As long as we've got each other, we're cool.
"There's no point in worrying about the future because, essentially, it's like paying interest on a bill you might not ever owe."
And they said of working with Louis: "His main advice has been that song choices are key.
"If we're not connecting with the song then we find a different one."
Tonight will see 5 After Midnight hoping to bounce back from their first appearance in the bottom two last weekend.
They admitted: "It's getting stressful because we've got two songs a week now. It's definitely getting more competitive."
The X Factor 2016 airs LIVE on ITV tonight at 8PM with the latest live performances.
