The first instalment of the X Factor Boot Camp was all a bit Hunger Games, and fans could not get enough.
The typically gruelling round opened with a twist – the Wall of Songs.
The hopefuls were told they each had to race over to a wall to pick a song written on a piece of paper, and that would be the number they performed for the judges.
Making it even worse, each song was written down three times so by picking a tune, each wannabe also picked a group to perform with – but blind.
Viewers thought it was a deliciously nasty twist.
This "wall of songs" is cruel and I love it! Mwahaha! (evil laugh) #XFactor— Rae & Bee (@dontthisjust) September 18, 2016

This wall of songs idea is a great new concept. If looking a tad unsafe with them all charging at it... #XFactor— Carl Butler (@carlos_b_fly) September 18, 2016
The Wall of Songs is the best idea in television, putting Naked Jungle into a very noble second place #xfactor— Sophie Hell 😈 (@SophLouiseHall) September 18, 2016
It was hard to find a fan on Twitter who didn’t love the new addition to the show.
Of course there’s always one…
