The auditions came to an end on last weekend’s episodes of The X Factor, which means the competition is getting closer to the business end.
With all of the successful hopefuls now through to Bootcamp, tonight’s episode sees Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh putting the singers through their paces. The Bootcamp stage aims to separate the wheat from the chaff as the best singers emerge as the pressure mounts.
As with last year, the singers will face the wall of songs as they fight it out to get a song that shows off their vocals. The singers will be form groups with their rivals so expect fireworks, accusations of people being lazy/not taking it seriously and hopefuls trying to out-sing each other to move through to the next round.
With ratings continuing to fall this year, The X Factor is going to have to pull something spectacular out of the bag to have a chance of competing with rival Strictly Come Dancing. Let’s hope there’s some real world class talent this year, as that’s been sorely missing for a long time now!
The X Factor 2017 continues at 8pm tonight on ITV. Preview all of the action with our gallery below:
