The X Factor’s spectacular Live Shows continue tonight with the finalists once again lining up to perform in front of the live studio audience and millions of viewers at home. 
 
This week the finalists will be getting into the swing of things with the return of Big Band Week.
 
The remaining contestants will battle it out to win over the public and this week they will be facing the challenge of singing with a full orchestra behind them.
 
The two contestants who poll the lowest in the public vote will face the dreaded sing-off on Sunday night.
 
Ever popular 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.
