JTR sent home from the X Factor despite giving their best performance in the finals.
Boy band JTR will turn their back on Sweden and stay in Australia as they ride a wave of popular support from their X Factor fans.
The brothers - John Andreasson and Tom and Robin Lundback - lost out on Monday night to Third D3gree in a battle-of-the-bands sing-off on the Seven Network show.
Natalie Basingthwaite had a bad week on the X Factor.
Both JTR and Third D3gree had been coached by Natalie Bassingthwaighte, who said neither act deserved to go home.
The three brothers, who live in Brisbane, had been in the bottom two for a few weeks, but their luck ran out on Monday's elimination night.
Nineteen-year-old Robin, the youngest brother, said while it was an "awful" feeling to have been eliminated, the singers were happy with their performances on the show.
Eliminated trio: JTR aren't leaving Australia despite being kicked of X Factor.
"We did the best out the situation and put a smile on (Natalie's) face," he said. "We did the best we could and where we got, so I'm really happy about that."
JTR intend to remain in Brisbane, where they were raised until the family moved to Sweden.
Robin said they would focus on connecting with fans and playing gigs in Brisbane and had no immediate plans to return to Sweden.
"It's been amazing for all of us, we had so much fun," Robin said.
"We got so many great fans that we love, and it's just the beginning and we're so happy about it."
Showing there's plenty of group love on the show, JTR would like to see Third D3gree take out the competition.
"We love Third D3gree and think they really deserve to win," Robin said.
"Actually, I think it was quite good that we were in the bottom because we all love each other, and (so) it's not that hard to let the other win."
He said said JTR had received plenty of support from their mentor.
"Nat's been great," Robin said. "She's definitely been there for us a lot, just teaching us confidence on stage and owning the stage.
"She wanted to rough us up a bit, so we got really cool songs ... We love that."
The song choice for JTR's final performance - Ed Sheeran's Lego House - had been their own, he added.
Judges Ronan Keating, Dannii Minogue and Redfoo unanimously voted off JTR despite praising the harmonies of the youthful Swedes. There was general agreement with Keating's observation that in the series JTR had never topped their audition performance.
The decision means Third D3gree - which was formed only after its members Kelebek, Jacinta and Jordan had auditioned for X Factor as solo acts - live to fight another day.
JTR's exit leaves just six contestants in the competition.
Team Keating retains all three of its acts: Jai Waeford, Taylor Henderson and Omar Dean.
The three other judges have one act each: Bassingthwaighte with Third D3gree, Redfoo with Jiordan Tolli, and Minogue with Dami Im, who has emerged as this season's stand-out act.
Bassingthwaighte said before the sing-off that she was already "shaking" at the thought of one of her acts going home.
Her nerves couldn't have been helped when guest artist Jason Derulo jumped over the judges's table while singing his hit song Talk Dirty.
Derulo used the show to repeat an earlier announcement that his world tour will come to Australia in April 2014.
