The folks over at heat have had their X Factor moles out and about earlier this month, and they spotted the final eight X Factor boys heading off to LA for judges' houses. While, as always, nothing is officially confirmed until the show airs, here are the names of the rumoured final eight boys.
But with pictures of them jetting out to join Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, we're not sure how much will change.
Favourites that have already been shown, including [tag]Frankie Cocozza[/tag], [tag]Craig Colton[/tag] and [tag]Marcus Collins[/tag] have all made the cut.
Hopefuls [tag]James Michael[/tag] and [tag]Luke Lucas[/tag] are also in the group, having clearly impressed the judges at bootcamp.
Meanwhile [tag]John Wilding[/tag] is back, having made it to Dannii Minogue's judges' houses last year. [tag]Joe Cox[/tag] and [tag]Max Vickers[/tag] - whose auditions have also yet to air - complete the line up of the under 25 guys.
Check out the pictures in heat magazine, out now.
This morning Gary Barlow admitted that in choosing his final four there were lots of tears. He said: "Usually, with the girls it’s the emotional one but, god, the boys were full on. I couldn’t believe it, there were so many tears.”
The X Factor 2011 continues with the final audition shows this weekend.
