Last night's X Factor saw Simon Cowell take the hot seat as the groups battled it out for a spot at judges' houses.

Spaces began to fill up fast, and by the time Wicklow brothers, Seán and Conor Price took to the stage, all six seats had been taken.

And it looks like the added pressure may have impacted the sibling's nerves as their first song, an original called Something in the Way, failed to impress the music mogul.

Within seconds, Simon waved a hand in the air signalling for the performance to stop, before asking the boys if they had another song prepared.

"Guys, I'm going to be honest with you. After that, I'm not sure if I'm going to give you a chair. So I need to hear another song. What's your backup?," he said.

Determined not to let set-back stop them from landing the seat they so desperately wanted, Seán and Conor stepped up to the plate with a stellar performance of another original track, Time.

After winning over all four judges, as well as an audience of thousands, Simon offered the duo a seat, though he did note that the lads would need to work on their nerves if they were going to progress further in the competition.

"Guys, what's clear is that in the small rooms you were much more comfortable. I think it's very difficult for people your age to be on a stage this big because you're showing your nerves. 

"So I have to make a decision whether I think this is right for you or too much for you."

"Okay, I've made a decision. You are going to take the seat."

So, it's onwards and upwards for the Blessington brothers, and we can't wait to follow their journey all the way to the top.



Wicklow brothers, Sean and Conor Price, wowed X Factor judges last night with their contemporary twist on Jimi Henrix's classic, All Along The Watchtower.

Having performed as a duo for around four years, the talented pair could often be seen busking on Dublin's Grafton Street, where they began to build a loyal fanbase.

However, last night, the brothers decided to take their music careers up a notch by attempting to win over the X Factor judges in the Edinburgh auditions.

After a flawless performance complete with an original rap from eldest brother, Sean, the siblings were met with a round of applause from all four judges with Simon Cowell even declaring the audition as “one of the best we've had.”

He added: I'm going to say something to you guys – I don't want to change a single thing from what I saw and heard today"- a massive compliment from the music mogul.

Sean and Conor received a unanimous 'yes' vote, and will proceed to the next stages of the competition.

But of course, the judges weren't the only ones who fell in love with the Blessington duo. Twitter went wild for the unique performance, with some even predicting the boys will go on to win the show.
