The X Factor tensions were high in last night’s episode which saw Mel B pick her six boys to take through to the next stage of Judge’s Houses.

As well as the audience giving their opinions by screaming out the seat numbers of the boys they wanted removing, judge Mel B was called ‘crazy’ by Simon Cowell for getting rid of Charlie Brown as she selected her six Boys for Judges' Houses.

Mel and Simon’s co-judge, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini said: “I'm disappointed for you Charlie because I think you're really, really talented. “Charlie, with your voice you could have come out here and absolutely nailed it.

To me, you turned into a busker. And if I was passing you in the subway, I wouldn't have put any money in your hat.”

Mel said: “I was really looking forward to seeing you. I just don't know what happened.”

Charlie responded: “I've got the utmost faith that you could bring out the best in me. Give me a shot.” As quickly as Mel gave Charlie his seat, she took it away from him when Hayden Leeman came along.

The 17-year-old sang I Love Rock 'N' Roll hoping to realise his X Factor dream although Simon stopped the performance early. The music mogul and dad-of-one told Hayden: “I like you, you're different, but that wasn't a great performance.”

A confused Mel responded: “Hayden you are a good singer, and you are different, so that's why I'm right confused.” After an emotional Hayden took Charlie’s seat the boys had a tearful embrace before Charlie left the stage.

“You are crazy” Simon told Mel. “I know what I'm doing” feisty Mel responded.

After all that drama and heartache soon after Hayden got his seat Mel then shockingly replaced him with Italian ‘I love pugs jumper guy,’ Andrea Faustini. Who by the way, we love.
