Mr Cowell returns to The X Factor panel this year, meaning there was nowhere to hide for our new bunch of singing hopefuls! Can he score another winner like Leona? Watch his space!
Rak-Su's battle bus rolled into their hometown of Watford yesterday (28th November), and it's safe to say the crowds were definitely feeling the boys!
From going back to school to a special performance at Watford F.C. (complete with support from Simon), here's what went down in pics...
Both Rak-Su and Lemonade are hoping Simon will take a chance on them for Live Shows, but with the competition fiercer than ever, who will grab that final spot?
For Simon, it's a "no brainer" as Rak-Su sail through to the Live Shows, with Lemonade's dreams of making it to the next round left a little flat...
With The Cutkelvins taking Simon’s first place at the Live Shows, who will be next to join them out of Jack & Joel and Sean & Conor Price?
And, with Simon not a fan of Jack & Joel’s song choices, it’s brother duo Sean & Conor Price who take that coveted second spot! Bring on the bro hug...
It would mean everything to The Cutkelvins to make the Live Shows, with Simon the only one who can make or break their dreams.
But, when he asks them if they like pressure, there’s only one way The Cutkelvins are heading and that’s through to the next round!
Simon can only take three Groups through to the Live Shows but, will the New Girl Band be one of them?
With Simon stating he feels there are "a lot of issues" with the group, he delivers the blow that they will not be going through to the next round. See how they took the news above...
Cheryl is looking forward to seeing what Sean & Conor Price can do but, will their rendition of Pink’s What About Us see them through to the Live Shows?
With Simon saying their performance was “so good” and Cheryl praising their confidence, the brothers are hoping they've done enough for one of those final three places!
Myles may only have eyes for Cheryl, but it’s Simon who Rak-Su will need to impress for a place at Live Shows. Will he be a fan of their original track, Palm Tree?
Cheryl believes they've got global appeal and with Simon agreeing that their timing couldn’t be better, it seems they are both feelin' Rak-Su!
