X Factor 2016 results! Who was voted off? Third place revealed!

TOnight's X Factor results! Who won The X Factor 2016?


5 After Midnight has finished The X Factor 2016 in third place in tonight's final results.

The boy band trio finished bottom of the vote tonight, leaving the competition ahead of the final result tomorrow.

Saara Aalto and Matt terry are the two remaining acts in the running to be crowned The X Factor winner 2016.

Lines to vote for the winner opened at the top of tonight's live show at Wembley Arena before the first round of performances from the then-final three.


5 After Midnight kicked things off with Crazy in Love by Beyonce before Matt Terry performed Take Me Home by Jess Glynne and then Saara Aalto belted out Everybody Wants to Rule The World by Tears For Fears.

It was then onto the duets, with 5 After Midnight kicking things off as they performed Tears with last year's winner Louisa Johnson and Clean Bandit. Matt then teamed up with his mentor Nicole Scherzinger on Purple Rain before Saara belted out Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody with Adam Lambert.

After all the songs, lines were frozen before Dermot O'Leary announced the third placed finalist.

And with the fewest votes at the freeze, 5 After Midnight bowed out of the competition.

"What can I say? It's been the best experience ever, there's been so much support and love!" they said. "It was amazing, we just want to say thank you to Simon, Nicole, Sharon and of course Louis."

The group's mentor Louis added: "Catch them on The X Factor tour, this is just the start."

Meanwhile, Saara reacted to making the final two: "This is the best feeling, thank you people who voted for us."

"I can't believe this, thank you so much!" Matt added.

Saara and Matt will now go forward to Sunday night's show.

The pair will perform their favourite song of the series and their potential winner's track before lines close for good.


All of the votes from Saturday will carry over and each app voter has another five free votes to use.

Elsewhere tonight's live show saw guest appearances from Louis Tomlinson and The Weeknd.

The X Factor 2016 final continues Sunday night at 8PM on ITV with guest appearances from Madness, Kylie Minogue plus Little Mix.
