X Factor 2018 finalists: Meet the top six boys at judges’ houses

The X Factor 2018 finalists are nearer to being revealed with the final six boys confirmed.

We had a total of eight audition shows this before the third and final episode of the Six Chair Challenge concluded tonight.

Over the last two weeks, the remaining acts in the four categories have been cut down to just 24 as the mentors took control for the first time this year.

Last Saturday and Sunday it all started with Simon Cowell and the Girls and Ayda Williams and the Overs while this weekend was the turn of Louis Tomlinson and the Boys and Robbie Williams and the Groups.

Louis concluded his selection of his Boys in tonight’s show, with a tense sing off deciding who ended up in the final seats.

Meanwhile, Brendan Murray was given a ‘Golden X’ by Louis, seeing him straight through to the next round.

But which of them will go on to take part in the X Factor live shows which start at the end of the month?
