WHAT IS EVERYONE SINGING AT THE FIRST X FACTOR UK LIVE SHOW?
The contestants take their chances in the first LIVE studio round, performing a selection of Number Ones.
Confrontations and fierce differences of opinion are inevitable as the judges critique each performance and support the acts in their categories. Simon Cowell mentors the over-25s (Jay James, Fleur East, and Ben Haenow), Cheryl looks after the girls (Lauren Platt, Chloe Jasmine and Stephanie Nala), Mel B has the boys (Andrea Faustini, Jake Quickenden and Paul Akister), and Louis Walsh is in charge of the groups (Blonde Electra, Only the Young, and New Boy Band – who should finally have a name). The wildcards are also revealed, bringing the total number of acts for the live shows up to 16. Dermot O’Leary is on presenting duties and will be getting all the reaction from the judges and contestants.
For a lil’ tasty teaser treat we’re going to reveal each contestant’s song choice! To see their performance you have to tune in to THE X FACTOR UK this Sunday and Monday at 8 ET| 5 PT!
