And with the girls going first, it is bound to be emotional!
With only a couple of hours to go until the next load of our weekend X Factor fix, we should really prepare for what might (or might not) happen.
Last night we saw the judges find out their categories, and wow, wasn’t it a load of mixed reactions. The shocker of the night though had to be Sharon Osbourne admitting that she wasn’t too impressed with her category of ‘The Girls’! The 64-year-old talent judge admitted to Dermot O’Leary ‘I will do what I have to do to be a good mentor, but was it my first choice? No’.
She walked into the room full of the excited girls and showed her reaction by saying, ‘Oh My Lord!’ Whereas, both Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger seemed pretty impressed with their categories. Simon was put with the groups, and Nicole was placed as the mentor for the Over 25’s. Louis Walsh’s reaction, though, was slightly mixed to some viewers. He said ‘I am kind of surprised, but I think I have the winner!’
But what can we expect from tonight’s show? It’s going to be the start of the dreaded six-chair challenge and to kick-start this process we will see Sharon choose her six girls! Among the hopefuls to make Sharon’s cut will be two of the youngest entries, 16-year-old student Rai-Elle and Holly Tandy, who is also 16. Both girls are planning to take risks tonight as Holly performs her own take of Lady Gaga’s Edge Of Glory. And Rai-Elle plans to wow the crowd with a courageous cappella rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water.
It is sure to be an emotional night as the girls battle it out to stay in the competition. But, we are confident Sharon is going to put the right girls through to the next part of the contest! You can watch the events of the show unfold as X Factor is on ITV tonight at 7:30 pm.
