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.
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
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.
After her worrying Boot Camp performance, can Lola Saunders keep it together with her version of John Legend's All of Me.
Or will it be back to gutting fish if she fails to get in the final three?
Lovely Emily Middlemas told us the best thing about Judges' Houses was when she met Tinie Tempah, she also told us that Tinie told Cheryl she was one of his faves. Cool!
But will that, and her performance of One Direction's Story Of My Life, be enough for Cheryl?
Chloe Jasmine has always had a good response from Cheryl, well, apart from the whole Boot Camp conundrum.
But will singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow, at Judges' Houses be a breeze for Chloe or will it all be too much?
Not many 16-year-olds can go from collecting their GCSE results to performing in front of Cheryl and Tinie Tempah in Nice. Well, none except for Lauren Platt.
With her performance of Tinie's mate Labrinth's song, Beneath Your Beautiful, will she score points for her singing?
