X Factor had us all glued to our screens this weekend in a thrilling Elton John themed live show, followed by an epic boyband results show - Robbie and Take That reunion - need we say more!
With Aiden Grimshaw vs Katie Waissel in a nail-biting sing-off, the judges took the decision to deadlock, and Aiden lost out in a serious shocker of an elimination, which left the nation wondering, how many more rounds can Katie scrape through?
Proving that there's no room for error, the final eight really have their work cut out to keep their place in the competition - clearly no one is safe!
And as if the competition itself wasn't thrilling enough, behind the judges' desk, the style-off between Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue served up some real dress-delights on both nights!
Dannii did her trademark Grecian chic on the Saturday show, in a jaw-dropping white asymmetric gown by Carla Zampatti - an Australian designer. She added a pair of turquoise drop earrings to give some gentle colour to the look. But not to be outdone, Cheryl looked amazing in a wow-some, sparkling champagne coloured Roberto Cavalli gown with di Grisogono jewels. Both ladies looked amazing!
Following on from their Saturday dress successes, the Sunday was no less stylish for the judges as Dannii opted for a blue and black leopard print wiggle dress by Emilia Wickstead - a New Zealand designer. She added a statement Jenny Packham ring along with Garrard earrings for a super glam edge.
But it was Cheryl who really stole the show on Sunday in a stunning Editions by Georges Chakra Fall 2010 black gown with plunging cut-out neckline and thigh-high front slit. With a daring up-do, Cheryl showed off her style-prowess, adding a hit of red lippy to match her jewelled poppy. Perfect!
And when we could drag our eyes off the judges' table, we were treated to the biggest reunion of the year - Robbie back with Take That. In an epic performance, the mega boyband were back on form and better than ever!
How can X Factor possibly top this weekend's shows? We reckon there's more thrills and spills to come...
