For the past few weeks we've watched auditions, bootcamp, six chair challenge and judges' houses on the X Factor. 

This weekend sees the live shows kick off. 

There's been plenty of changes over the past week and we have your full rundown. 

Which acts got through to live shows? 

The girls category consists of Grace Davies, Rai-Elle Williams, Holly Tandy and wildcard Alisah Bonaobra. 

The boys category is made up of Spencer Sutherland, Sam Black, Lloyd Macey and wildcard Leon Mallet. 

The groups are made up of Irish brothers Sean and Conor Price, The Cutkelvins, Rak-Su and wildcard Jack and Joel. 

Finally, the overs consists of Tracy Leanne Jefford, Matt Linnen, Kevin Davy White and wildcard Talia Dean. 

Who's performing tonight?

The boys and girls categories will perform tonight, while the groups and overs will sing tomorrow. 


The groups were originally meant to perform tonight but that changed after Simon Cowell fell down the stairs yesterday, meaning he may miss tonight's show. 

What changes are happening this year?

The sing off won't happen any more! That's right, no more deadlock. The person with the lowest votes will go home. 

As there are 16 acts this year, half will perform tonight and half tomorrow night. Two acts will be sent home this weekend and three will be sent home next weekend. 

This weekend's show will see Liam Payne and Stormzy perform. 

Tonight's show airs at 8.20pm on TV3.
