Dublin girl Janet Grogan sang her heart out as she stood before Sharon Osbourne and Robbie Williams in the Judges' Houses stage of X Factor - but her heart was broken once again as she was denied a place in the live shows.

Janet turned in a wonderful performance as she belted out Duran Duran's Ordinary World, inspiring Williams to suggest she had "an Adele quality" to her voice, even though she was suffering from a sore throat:

It seemed as if her performance might be enough to secure her a place in the live shows, but Sharon then produced the bombshell Janet had been dreading:

Saara Aalto, who was rejected by Sharon during the Six-Chair Challengem but brought back as a wildcard made it through alongside Relley Clarke and Honey G.

Rapper Honey G was also eliminated during the Six-Chair Challenge, yet got her chance to make a comeback after Ivy Paredes had to drop out due to visa issues.

Robbie was thrilled by Honey G but admitted he didn't think she had the potential to win the show.

He said: "She makes me happy and her talent for making me happy isn't the talent that should win this show. When I wake up tomorrow will I remember Honey G? I will remember her for the rest of my life!"

Meanwhile, Nicole Scherzinger got some advice from guest judge Calvin Harris as she cut her category down from seven to three contestants.

And Calvin - who had an acrimonious split from Taylor Swift earlier this year - even bonded with contestant Matt Terry, who revealed his own heartbreak following a recent break-up.

Matt made it through to become a "Sherzy-boy", along with Freddy Parker and wildcard contestant Ryan Lawrie.

They will join Louis Walsh's three groups The Brooks, 5AM and Ottavio & Bradley and Simon Cowell's contestants Gifty Louise Agyeman, Samantha Lavery and Emily Middlemas on the live shows next weekend.
