Episode Quotes
Dannii: (to Matt) Matt I just want to take this moment to say thanks for the work you have done in the last few weeks.

Louis: (to Rebecca) Rebecca, there's something I want to say. I believe in you so much as a person, as a role model, as a recording artist. You are one of the nicest people I've ever met on X Factor!

Louis: (to One Direction) It's a amazing that five guys have gelled so well.

Dannii: (to Cher) Your music is definitely a niche, it's not something we have had on the X Factor before!
