That's right, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa will no longer have the power to save an act from the bottom two.

Which given their past decisions, can only be a good thing.

One act who isn't happy about this however is Union J.

Not that we blame them given that they have landed in the bottom two three times now.

George Shelley tweeted about the band's worry from their official account yesterday.

They wrote: "There's no bottom 2 this week....person with the lowest vote goes...so no one is safe :( !! ....... #UnionJToTheFinal George x"

Band mate JJ echoed George's sentiment today tweeting: "Ahhh the act who gets the least votes goes tomorrow!! No bottom 2 or judges choice ! Sooo nervous! JJ xxxx #UnionJToTheFinal"

Union J have previously relied on the judging panel to keep them in the competition, beating former contestants Rylan Clark, District 3 and Jade Ellis after past sing offs.
