District3 left the show last night after both Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger vote to save Union J while their mentor Louis Walsh refused to vote meaning Tulisa's vote was rendered redundant.

We caught up with the boys this morning to see what they made of what went on last night.

We wanted to hear the boys have their say on Gary Barlow voting against them and saying they 'didn't want it' as much as Union J.

Speaking exclusively to omg! Mickey told us: "We tried our best and if he didn't like it then it's fair enough, he can have his opinion."

Greg added: "But we want this as much, if not more, than everybody."

"I think after the last couple of weeks he has taken a shine to the Union J boys and that is fair enough, it's just personal preference."

We reckon the boys are being polite because they are too lovely, for us it was totally kicking them when they were down.

Plus they agree with us that their performance was far from their worst.

Mickey says although he hasn't seen the performance for himself: "The general vibe we got from everyone else was that it wasn't our worst."

And what do the boys think of Louis' decision to abstain from the vote?

Greg says: "I like that Louis didn't vote, people had been saying he supported Union J more but he has supported us both."

But one judge they most definitely haven't got enough love for is Nicole Shcerzinger, who the boys say gave them advice after the show.

Greg says: "Nicole chatted with us after the show and she gave us some great advice, saying keep growing. We need to remember our oldest member is Union J's youngest member."
