By the end of tonight’s episode of The X Factor, all of the judges will have picked the final 6 acts for their category.
Sharon Osbourne had a tough time picking her final 6 Girls, which resulted in a lot of booing from the audience and a messy sing-off between three acts. Simon Cowell had a marginally easier time but his Group choices caused Nicole Scherzinger to storm out of the arena in rage.
Last night Nicole started selecting her final 6 Overs and tonight she’ll finish that unenviable task. Then it’ll be over to Louis Walsh to pick his final 6 Boys but will he have an easier time of it than his fellow judges?
We highly doubt it. The Boys is, as always, one of the strongest categories and with no joke acts to put through, Louis will actually have to choose the best talent this year (which is a good thing).
Next week the competition moves on to the Judges’ Houses stage as we edge ever nearer to the final six week stretch of live shows.
The X Factor 2017 continues at 7pm tonight on ITV. Preview the episode with our gallery below:
