X Factor's most watched auditions EVER - see the full top five!

4TH POWER

4th Impact's audition now ranks in as the second most watched in X Factor history.

And it's only been online for 12 months compared to the many years that the other try outs have had to rack up hits.

In all, 4th Impact's very first audition from last year's show - where they were originally known as 4th Power - has now been watched almost 70 MILLION times since it premiered, placing them at Number 2 in the show's most watched auditions online.

In their first appearance on The X Factor, demure 4th Impact shocked the judges with a smashing cover of Jessie J's Bang Bang that had all four of the panel on their feet.

The performance has since overtaken the likes of James Arthur and Cher Lloyd, but not Ablisa's on stage bust up which ranks in at Number 1 in the countdown. None of this year's (2016) auditions have made the list yet.

Ablisa

The most watched X Factor audition to date, with more than 100 MILLION viewers, Ablisa's try out ended rather unexpectedly.

Cher's audition was one of the standouts from 2010 and started her journey to the final.
