4. Sam hammed it up with "How Will I Know" by Whitney Houston, incorporating some classic dance moves.

And Louis spoke for us all by admitting that he hated hearing "Skinny Love" at X Factor auditions in the past.

But he lost his indie cred by admitting that he'd never been to Glastonbury.

"Glastonbury is my favourite festival...but I've never been" Great performance but you're an idiot, Mowgli. #xfactor
