Four of Diamonds axe from The X Factor

Four of Diamonds axe from The X Factor

Four of Diamonds have been eliminated from 'The X Factor'.

The group - consisting of Sophia, Caroline, Yasmin and Lauren - have been given the boot from the singing competition after they lost the sing-off against Saara Aalto on Sunday (06.11.16).

The four piece - who were mentored by Louis Walsh - failed to impress judges Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell with their rendition of the late Whitney Houston's 'When You Believe' in the last leg of the show when they went up against the Finnish singer's slowed down but powerful version of Jessie J's 'Who You Are' this evening.

However, despite their disappointment, it's not all bad news for the departing band as they will reunite with the other seven contestants for the 'X Factor' live tour around the UK next year.

Four of Diamonds had a bit of a bumpy ride in the competition as Louis couldn't decide whether he wanted to take them through to Judges' Houses and then the Live Shows.

He decided to give them another chance and hear them sing at his apartment in Ibiza but they failed to make his final three.

However, they were thrown a lifeline at the beginning of the Live Shows when Brooks Way were axed from the competition following allegations of physical abuse and they took their place.

'The X Factor' will return next weekend for a Disco theme.
