X Factor 2011: Gary and Louis in tears as they reveal X Factor finalists!

X Factor 2011 judges

There's tears from everyone on tonight's X Factor 2011, including Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh, as the judges reveal their X Factor finalists. Just 16 of the remaining 32 contestants can make it to the live shows, and there's emotional scenes as the news is delivered.

Everyone ends up in tears, and for some, it's tears of joy as they move into the luxury X Factor house in London for what could be the biggest three months of their life.

For others however, the tears mean the end of their journey on the show.

A source blabbed: “Louis had to wear big sunglasses because he was so emotional and wanted to hide the tears in his eyes. He says to one act, ‘You are making this so difficult for me’.

“Then Kelly has to tell some of the girls they are not through, despite them being brilliant. Her category has a few surprises, and one of them is seeing Kelly cry when she has to kick some out and keep some in.”

Last night we saw Louis take the over 25s to Barcelona, Gary fly the boys out to Hollywood, Kelly jet out with girls to Miami and Tulisa travelled to Greece with the groups, for one final performance.

Each of the remaining 32 performed twice for the judges, and their showbiz pals, in a bid to make the live shows.

Tune into The X Factor 2011 tonight to see who makes the cut.
