Simon Cowell's dramatic X Factor decision

Simon Cowell dramatically brought back an ousted 'X Factor' contestant at the last minute on Sunday's (18.10.15) show.

The music mogul admitted he had made a mistake in ditching Max Stone after telling him he didn't think people would like him and offered him a seat at the very end of the episode.

However, with his six chairs already filled, Simon had to ditch one of his other contestants and chose to send Hannah Marie Kilminster home.

After the audience called for Max's reinstatement, Simon said: "I think I've made a mistake and I've learned to listen to an audience so I'd like to give you a chair."

After finalising his six contestants - Anton Stephans, Bupsi, Ebru, Jennifer Phillips, Kerrie-Anne and Max Stone - Simon admitted: "That was torture."

He added: "I know I was negative about this category but I really, really like you guys and I'm going to give it 100 per cent."

Meanwhile, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also finalised her category, choosing Alien, BEKLN, 4th Power, Menn on Poinnt, Silver Tone and The First Kings.
