Louis Walsh makes surprise decision to put novelty group Ottavio and Bradley though to X Factor live finals after a VERY eccentric performance
They're the novelty duo that have already had their fair share of drama on X Factor.
And now best friends Ottavio Columbro and Bradley Hunt have controversially made it through to the coveted live shows after their jaw-dropping rendition of Christina Aguilera's Candyman which left them in swimming pool.
The besties shocked the judges with their homemade ensembles - which Bradley made with a 'glue gun' while watching his soaps - and eccentric dance moves.

Following their performances, the eccentric twosome had X Factor judge Louis Walsh as well as guest judges Alesha Dixon and singer Fleur East in fits of laughter before Ottavio pushed Bradley into the pool.
Alesha proclaimed in Ibiza: 'It's an experience, it makes you laugh but I don’t think you could win the show with them.'
Afraid of only being seen as the comedy act of this year's series, Ottavio and Bradley said they understood that some might not see them as actual competitors.

They said: 'Some people will question if we're taking it seriously but we've here to prove we are.
'We know we can win this so he has to take a chance on us.'
As the pair got closer to Louis' decision, they revealed they dressed as 'warriors' to show they were ready to serve the Irish man if they get through.
The singers were pitted against fellow duo Tom and Laura to nab the final spot for the live shows.

When Louis confirmed the boyband had made it through, he reiterated the guest judges sentiments.
He declared: 'I think you can do incredibly well in the competition. This could change your life.'
In shock: The second boyband and duo to get through to series 13's live shows was The Brooks
The second boyband and duo to get through to series 13's live shows was The Brooks.
After performing Nelly's Just A Dream, the 17-year-old brother's said they were doing the show for their nan - having previously got as far as judges houses in 2014.
Proving to be Louis' favourite phrase of the night, the former Westlife manager insisted: 'Don't let me down, don't let yourselves down, this could change your life.'
With three acts through it left girlbands Skarl3t and 4 of Diamonds, duo Tom and Laura as well as wildcard Yes Lad to jet home without securing a place in the live finals.
