Nicole Scherzinger made an awkward mistake on last night's X Factor
Earlier this week, it had been reported that Sean and Conor Price might miss live shows on account of being ill but thankfully, they recovered in time to perform last night.
The boys are getting more and more popular each week and last night it seemed as though the audience was full of people there for them alone.

So much so that Nicole Scherzinger commented on this fact but got a little confused and said the duo were from Scotland instead of Ireland.
Referring to the excited audience, she said:
"Wow, it looks like we’ve got the whole of Scotland in the house tonight".
In fairness to the judge, she quickly realised her error and backtracked to say "I mean...Ireland".
Needless to say, people were not impressed and took to Twitter to say so.

However, that wasn't the only awkward moment on last night's show. Simon Cowell also forget the running order and struggled to remember which act was up next.
