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. It’s time for contestants to bring out the leg warmers, strap on the shoulder pads and belt out a power ballad as The X Factor embraces the music of the 80s as the theme for the second live show.
Dermot O'Leary presides over proceedings, while judges and mentors Louis Walsh, Mel B, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell take their seats behind the judges’ desk to battle it out with their contestants. As the competition hots up and the standard gets higher there is sure to be drama and disagreements between the judges.
Louis has the Groups, Mel B the Boys, Cheryl the girls and Simon the overs.
