With Ella Henderson out of The X Factor UK 2012 season, it’s just boys left — and fewer and fewer as the weeks drag on! Tonight, Rylan Clark and Union J sang for their lives, and Rylan was sent home. The decision was left up to Tulisa, who was visibly emotional about booting Rylan, explaining that she had to select the act who would sell the most records.

That act, she decided, is boy band Union J, whose cover of “Winner Takes All” impressed the judges — especially Nicole Scherzinger. Nicole gushed, “I loved the way you addressed the girls this week, get used to it, get comfortable with it, because that’s what your future looks like.”

What do you think? Has One Direction started a boy band revolution? Or, do you think boy groups are just a fleeting fad?
