Since 2014's Season of X Factor, XOX have gone on to capture the hearts of everyone in Australia!
XOX were a four-member girl group consisting of Tahnie Cristini (age 19 from Balgownie, New South Wales), Chaska Halliday (age 17 from New South Wales), Nada-Leigh Nasser (age 21 from New South Wales) and Serenity (age 18 from Melbourne, Victoria). Cristini began performing between the ages of three and four, and Serenity is a rapper. Nasser previously auditioned for The X Factor in series five as a member of the group Element, who were eliminated during the super bootcamp round. XOX cite Beyoncé, Bow Wow, Janelle Monae, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Michael Jackson, The Pretty Reckless, Rihanna and Rita Ora as their musical influences.
All members originally auditioned for The X Factor as solo contestants and progressed to the super bootcamp round, where they were put together by the judges after the first bootcamp challenge. XOX then progressed to the second bootcamp challenge, where they performed "Boom Boom Pow" by The Black Eyed Peas to the judges and a live audience of one thousand. XOX made it to the home visits round in Sydney and performed "What a Man" in front of their mentor Dannii Minogue and guest mentors Jessica Mauboy and James Blunt.
Minogue later selected XOX for the live shows. They were in the bottom two for the first time in week two with Younger Than Yesterday, but were saved after Bassingthwaighte, Keating and Redfoo chose to eliminate Younger Than Yesterday. XOX were in the bottom two again in week four with Tee and were eliminated after receiving three votes from Bassingthwaighte, Keating and Redfoo.
