X0X blame cure of the groups

Ousted X Factor group XOX agree with mentor Dannii Minogue's comments that they were not given a fair chance in the competition.

The girl band, comprising Tahnie Cristini, Chaska Halliday, Nada-Leigh Nasser and Serenity, were eliminated on Monday after their second turn in the bottom two.

Originally auditioning as four solo singers, they were put together during the boot camp of the Seven show.

Not only did they have to learn their songs and memorise harmonies but Minogue said the singers often were given only 45 minutes to learn their dance routines before going on stage.

Speaking to AAA after the elimination, Serenity agreed with Minogue that the time constraints made it much harder for the band to polish their performances.

"As (Minogue) said, we only get 45 minutes to learn the whole dance routines, so it is a lot of added pressure to be dancing, singing and rapping and co-ordinating that all between four people," the 18-year-old said.

Though Serenity initially was hesitant to be put in a girl group by the judges, she said they instantly had an "amazing chemistry".

The challenge will be to keep the act going - the rapper hails from Melbourne, the others from NSW.

"We have something really special; we just have to stay together," Serenity said.

Considering Minogue has only one group left in the competition, sibling act Brothers 3, Serenity predicted it might be a struggle for their "mumma fierce" to take the X Factor title.

"It's hard for Australia to warm to groups because with solo artists you get to see more of their personality and it's easier to make that personal connection. Dannii has her work cut out for her but Brothers 3 are extremely talented."
