Alien Uncovered (formerly Alien) are a five-piece girl group consisting of Madison, Natalie, Shae, Temple,and Yaz. They were part of the Groups category mentored by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and were eliminated in Week 1 of the live shows, finishing in 12th place.

During their time on the show, they also had a sixth member, Frank. The band came up with their name after people kept staring at them on a train because of the way they looked, stating: "We felt like aliens... so we thought it would be a good name for the band." They have been together for over a year and are all former dancers.

Alien Uncovered were eliminated in week one after landing in the sing-off with Kiera Weathers, receiving Ora's, Grimshaw's and Cowell's votes to be sent home. Result polls released after the end of the series revealed that they would have been saved had Cowell taken the vote to deadlock. A few days before their group performance with the other contestants at the final, Frank abruptly left the band, later claiming she was being forced to by the other members. They finished in 12th place.
