The X Factor’s spectacular Live Shows continue tonight with the finalists lining up to perform in front of the live studio audience and millions of viewers at home. 
 
The theme this week is Love and Heartbreak. 
 
Dermot O'Leary presides over proceedings, while judges and mentors Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger take their seats behind the judges’ desk to battle it out with their contestants.
 
Louis has the Boys, Sharon the Overs, Gary the Groups and Nicole the Girls. There is sure to be drama and disagreements between the judges as the competition hots up, but one thing they can agree on is that the standard of competition is better than ever this year.
 
And introducing the dramatic new FLASH VOTE at the end of the show. Once every contestant has performed, voting lines will open for under ten minutes, giving viewers the opportunity to save their favourite act from the bottom two.
 
After voting lines have closed and the votes have been counted and verified, the contestant with the lowest number of votes will be revealed and told that they face the sing-off tomorrow night. Voting lines for the remaining contestants will then reopen until Sunday night’s show where the second contestant to face the sing off will be revealed.
