The 12 finalists took to the stage for the first time on Saturday – but in a surprise twist they were joined by four more ‘wild card’ finalists…. 2/24 First on to the X Factor 2010 live stage were FYD, who got things off to a flying start with their version of the Travis McCoy hit Billionaire 3/24 Matt Cardle, one of the favourites to win, did well with the Kelly Rowland song When Love Takes Over, interspersed with snatches of Coldplay’s Clocks 4/24 John Adeleye got things going for the over 28s, singing the Boyz II Men ballad One Sweet Day – but Simon wasn’t too keen on the song choice 5/24 Rebecca Ferguson was the first of the girls to perform, singing the 80s classic Teardrops and winning plenty of praise from the panel 6/24 Storm Lee would certainly stand out in a crowd for his pink hair and eccentric make-up – and his performance of Starship’s We Built This City was pretty flamboyant too 7/24 Belle Amie, one of the groups put together by Simon Cowell at bootcamp, were next on stage, singing BoB’s Airplanes Belle Amie, one of the groups put together by Simon Cowell at bootcamp, were next on stage, singing BoB’s Airplanes 8/24 Cher Lloyd defied her critics with her version of 80s hit Just Be Good To Me – complete with one of her signature raps in the middle 9/24 Another wild card, Paije Richardson won praise for his performance of Killing Me Softly 10/24 Camp duo Diva Fever were the first ‘wild card’ act to perform, singing the Boney M hit Sunny and wearing some impressive dayglo outfits 11/24 Katie Waissel reprised Queen’s We Are The Champions, which she sung in her original audition – complete with some rather odd feathery headgear 12/24 Dublin supermarket worker Mary Byrne was next, delivering one of the performances of the night with her powerful rendition of It’s A Man’s World 13/24 The show had more than its fair share of OTT performances, among them Nicolo Festa’s version of Lady Gaga’s Just Dance 14/24 Boyband One Direction, who were also formed at bootcamp, have been tipped to do well in the competition and made their mark with their rendition of Coldplay’s Viva La Vida 15/24 Brazilian-born Wagner, another wild card finalist, sang a medley of Ricky Martin’s She Bangs and the B52’s Love Shack, and even played the bongos. Simon Cowell described his performance as “bonkers” 16/24 The penultimate performance of the night came from Aiden Grimshaw, who delivered a haunting rendition of Gary Jules’ version of Mad World 17/24 Wild card finalist Treyc Cohen rounded off Saturday’s show with her performance of U2’s One – and wowed the panel with her voice 18/24 Sunday’s results show started with a group performance from all 14 acts 19/24 Last year’s winner Joe McElderry made a welcome return to the X Factor stage, performing his new single Ambitions 20/24 Current favourite Aiden Grimshaw was among the 13 acts who made it straight through on public vote – and he took the news calmly 21/24 While Cher Lloyd looked shocked to learn she had made it through to next week 22/24 However Nicolo Festa became the first act to leave after receiving the lowest number of public votes – and said afterwards he felt “crap” 23/24 Katie Waissel was another act in the bottom three who had to sing again in a bid to stay in the competion 24/24 But FYD ultimately became the second act to get the boot after losing out in the judges’ vote, with only their mentor Simon choosing them to stay. 14 acts remain to battle it out next week….
