The X Factor 2017 kicked off its live shows last week and it looks like the rejigged format wasn’t a hit with viewers.
Despite there being significant changes, including an elimination on both Saturday and Sunday, the ratings dipped once again. We thought the refresh worked well and gave the show a fresh twist!
Last weekend saw Spencer Sutherland and Talia Dean leave the competition after coming bottom of the votes on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Grace Davies and Rak-Su were the most popular acts from the weekend and they battled to win a prize that involved flying to New York to see and meet Pink.
Grace was crowned the winner by viewers so we look forward to seeing how she got on.
This weekend The Boys and The Groups will perform on Saturday and The Girls and The Overs on Sunday. Hopefully Simon Cowell will be back too after missing last weekend’s shows due to a fall down the stairs.
The theme this weekend is Viva Latino and the song choices are…
Kevin Davy White: Santana Ft. Rob Thomas – Smooth
Tracyleanne Jefford: Jennifer Lopez – Ain’t Your Mama
Matt Linnen: Ricky Martin – Livin’ La Vida Loca (with rap)
Holly Tandy: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Ft. Justin Bieber – Despacito (remix)
Grace Davies: Anne-Marie – Ciao Adios
Rai-Elle Williams: Enrique Iglesias Ft. Sean Paul, Descemer Bueno & Gente De Zona –
Alisah Bonoabra: Jennifer Lopez – Let’s Get Loud
Lloyd Macey: Enrique Iglesias – Hero
Sam Black: Ritchie Valens / The Beatles – La Bamba / Twist & Shout medley
Leon Mallett: Daft Punk Ft. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers – Get Lucky
Rak-Su: Original song – Dimelo
The Cutkelvins: CNCO & Yandel – Hey DJ
Sean & Conor Price: Sia Ft. Nicky Jam – Cheap Thrills (remix)
Jack & Joel: Camila Cabello / Nicky Jam – Havana / Hasta el Amanecer medley
The X Factor continues at 8.20pm on Saturday with The Boys and The Groups battling it out to remain in the competition.
