It was totes emosh this weekend!

That was one of the most stressful weekends we’ve had in a very long time.

On Friday we had Louis Walsh and the Groups - with Blonde Electra, the new (unnamed) Boyband and Only The Young getting through to the Live Shows, and we said goodbye to Concept, the new girl group and the cuties know as The Brooks.

Then Mel B’s Boys followed, welcoming Andrea Faustini, Jake Quickenden and Paul Akister, and saying farewell to Danny Dearden, Jack Walton and Jordan Morris.

On Saturday, Simon Cowell’s Overs got all emotional as Ben Haenow, Fleur East and Jay James pulled out the stops to be in Simon’s top three, and it was see ya later to Helen Fuilthope, Lizzy Pattinson and Stevi Ritchie.

And Sunday, well, lets just say we really should have invested in a waterproof mascara! Cheryl’s final three Girls in Nice consisted of Chloe Jasmine, Lauren Platt and Stephanie Nala, but it was Au Revoir to Emily Middlemas, Kerrianne Covell and Lola Saunders.

See all the finalists in action, PLUS the Wild Cards being revealed, this Saturday on The X Factor, at 7.30pm on ITV

“We were crushed we didn’t get through” Will Concept get over going home?

Poor Concept, they fought all the way to Judges' Houses, and along with The Brooks and the new X Factor girl group, had their dreams shattered by Judge, Louis Walsh when he told them he wasn't sending them through to the Live Shows.
We caught up with Ben, Karim, Matt, Nathan and Scott to offer some tissues and a shoulder to cry on...

What was it like at Judges’ Houses?

Scott It was the scariest thing we’ve ever been a part of as a band. Boot Camp was bad enough but Judges' Houses was on another level.
Ben We went out there with the mentality that if it was meant to be, it was meant to be.
Nathan But it was so intense, I don't think any of us expected that.

How long were you there for?

All Four days.
Karim It felt like longer though. We made some great friends, visited some lovely places and ate some sick food. Everybody was so chilled in Bermuda - it was an amazing place.
