Simon Cowell’s not happy with contestants and so he has turned this weekend’s Halloween-themed show in double eviction fright nights…
ITV released a film of Simon telling the remaining 11 acts that there would be a twist this weekend – and he didn’t mean the dance.
“I think you all need a bit of a wake-up call,” Simon told the contestants. “So there are no second chances.”
This means that instead of just one act going home on the Sunday night, there will be an act going home tonight (Saturday)… And, let’s face it, that first act should be the horrifically bad Stevi Ritchie. Will it be, though?
What’s going to happen is this: the act with the lowest number of votes will go immediately on Saturday, without any chance to save themselves in the sing-off.
So, by the end of the weekend, there will be just nine acts remaining in the competition.
Here’s what each contestant is performing in this weekend’s Halloween special are:
Andrea Faustini, singing “Relight My Fire”, by Take That
Jack Walton, “Bleeding Love”, by Leona Lewis
Paul Akister, “Bat Out Of Hell”, Meatloaf
Lauren Platt, “Dark Horse”, by Katy Perry
Lola Saunders, “Crazy”, by Gnarls Barkley
Only The Young, “The Monster Mash”, by Bobby Pickett
Stereo Kicks, “Everybody”, by Backstreet Boys
Ben Haenow, “Highway to Hell”, by AC/DC
Fleur East, “Thriller”, by Michael Jackson
Jay James, “Mad World”, by Tears For Fears
Stevi Ritchie, “Music Of The Night”, from Phantom of the Opera
The X Factor continues on ITV, Saturday, November 1, 8.00pm.
