When Lucie Jones and Jedward ended up in the bottom two, many though Simon had finally been given the opportunity he had been waiting for... to get rid of the "vile" twins.
But when he decided to go to Deadlock, and it was revealed that the twins had received more votes than Lucie, he missed his chance to be rid of them.
Or did he?
It seems that Mr Cowell has softened his attitude towards the boys, and that could have something to do with the pound signs that are always in his eyes.
Whilst having Jedward in the competition when they clearly can't sing is not great for the other contestants who can, the publicity that follows the twins about is doing nothing but line Simon's pocket.
Hardly a day goes by when the twins are not on the front of a paper or magazine and there's a constant debate around preverbal water coolers as to wether they're a great act or a horrendous one.
We want to hear your views... what did you make of last night's decision?
