X Factor judge Simon Cowell made a major announcement at the start of Sunday night’s results show.
In a bizarre moment at the start of the show, presenter Dermot O’Leary revealed that Simon had some big news to deliver.
Despite being the big boss on the X Factor , he claimed that he had only just been told what was happening, and lines appeared to be being fed through his ear.
Flustered Simon, who was quite confused about the whole thing, said: "I’ve literally just been told this. I had no idea.
"Let me get this right, the six acts remaining are going to be the six acts who go on tour?"
Simon didn’t know what was happening

Finally getting to the point, Simon explained that the remaining acts not booted out tonight will take part in the UK tour next year.
Realising how ridiculous the situation was, Dermot poked fun at Simon for not knowing what was going on.
"It’s your show," shouted Dermot, who was left more confused than before.

Hitting back, Simon said: "Obviously it’s not my show. I’ve just been told that. I don’t know why.."
Simon also made two awkward blunders at the start of Saturday night’s show while introducing his singers.
The show is losing millions of viewers every week, and it appears that Simon himself isn’t interested in watching.
Simon was very confused
The music mogul clearly wasn’t paying attention as he messed up the introductions to two of his acts.
First up was Scarlett Lee, but Simon evidently didn’t know that as he failed to realised the show had started.
Jittery Simon said: "What? We’ve started already? Wow that was quick."
*X Factor airs tonight on ITV at 8.10pm
