Simon called James Graham 'the dark horse' of the competition (even though James isn't that keen on animals) find out which band is his guilty pleasure and watch Lauren Platt work our budget wind machine!
Watch Overload and Rouge Kiss' TalkTalk Backstage video.
After a cracking X Factor weekend we think you deserve the chance to learn a little more about our acts with TalkTalk TV's Backstage.
Blonde Electric tell us about their favourite footwear, Jay James reveals why he started singing and as if that's not enough Chloe Jasmine lets us know who her inspiration is.
The X Factor's got a brand new online presenter: Luke Franks is joining the team bringing us backstage exclusives from the auditions and live shows.
Luke's an award-winning radio and TV presenter with his own show on The Hits Radio. He's also one of the line up on CITV's Scrambled. He's also interviewed hundreds of pop stars including the Vamps, Union J, Katy Perry and Rixton. He even went on tour with District 3.
Luke could hardly contain his excitement when we caught up with him:
The buzz is massive already. Obviously Simon being back is huge on it's own, let alone with Cheryl there and their history. Then with Louis to stir it up and a Spice Girl to top it off, it's gonna be epic.
He's right, this year's going to EPIC.
