Singers Jack and Joel from Gainsborough and Leeds have made it through to the second week of The X Factor's live shows. Their performance of New Rules was enough to guarantee them a place in next weekend's programme.

Watch their performance again:

The act voted off the programme tonight was Talia Dean from the overs category. Jack and Joel did not receive enough votes to top the Sunday vote. That was Rak-su from the groups category though the overall winner of the weekend, following a sing-off was Grace Davies from the girls category who will now travel to New York to watch a performance by the singer P!nk in Madison Square Garden.

Jack and Joel from Gainsborough and Leeds have received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the X Factor judges for their first performance on the live studio shows.

The singing duo, made up of Jack Remmington and Joel Fishel were voted back in to the competition as a wildcard act by the public after their mentor Simon Cowell initially sent them home at the Judges' Houses stage of the competition.

Judge Louis Walsh told the pair that he doesn't think they realise how good they are and said they can go really far in the competition. Sharon Osbourne said she was glad they were back and the song suited their personalities.

Fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger told the pair "You add so much to the competition, I like you guys so much. You both complement each other so much but Jack, you really killed it on those vocals." And Alesha Dixon, standing in for their own mentor Simon Cowell said their smiles are really infectious and it really counts that they are so happy to be there.

Jack and Joel will find out later this evening whether their performance has received enough votes from viewers to send them through to week two of the live shows.

Holly Tandy from Barnsley has been voted through to the second week of live shows on the X Factor after impressing the judges earlier this evening with a version of 'Hollow' by Tori Kelly.

Watch Holly's performance again:

Spencer Sutherland who was mentored by Louis Walsh in the boys' category was voted out of the competition. For the first time the show revealed which act received the most votes which was Grace Davies from the girls category and will compete against the Sunday show winner to be named winner of the weekend overall.

Our region's other finalists 'Jack and Joel' from Gainsborough and Leeds will perform on Sunday night's programme in the groups category. Their mentor Simon Cowell was missing from tonight's show after being taken to hospital yesterday but he is expected to return to the show when he has recovered.

The X Factor returns on Sunday evening at 7pm on ITV.

Barnsley singer Holly Tandy has been given very positive reviews following her first live performance on The X Factor this weekend. The 16 year old sang a version of 'Hollow' by Tori Kelly.

Louis Walsh said the song would be a great first single describing it as "incredible". Fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger said "You're so beyond your years already, you're such a natural on that stage." Holly's own mentor Sharon Osbourne said she both looks and sings like a pop star and described her as "fabulous".

Holly must now wait to see if her song was good enough for her to be voted through to next week's show when the public vote takes place later this evening.

The singing duo Jack and Joel from Gainsborough and Leeds have been chosen as one of the wildcard acts in this year's X Factor live shows. The Oxford University graduates Jack Remmington and Joel Fishel were originally sent home by mentor Simon Cowell from the Judges Houses stage of the competition.

They told host Dermot O'Leary they were "so excited to be back". Former X Factor judge Cheryl Tweedy said the public had made a "great choice" in putting them back into the competition.

It has now been confirmed that a public vote earlier this week has seen them be reinstated. They will perform live for the first time in Sunday night's show along with the other three groups in the competition. The other three wildcard acts are Leon Mallet in the boys category, Alisah Bonaobra in the girls category and Talia Dean for the overs.
