PICTURES! X Factor 2016 live tour starts in Aberdeen

The X Factor 2016 live tour kicked off in Aberdeen this weekend, with eight of last year’s finalists performing for a packed out arena.

Thousands were in the Scottish City for the opening night, as runners up Reggie n Bollie kicked things off with one of their trademark upbeat numbers.

The rest of the finalists quickly followed with Lauren Murray, Anton Stephans, 4th Impact, Che Chesterman and Mason Noise all performing favourite songs from last year's series.

There were some surprises too as Che and Lauren teamed up together on Valerie while the contestants performed together as a group the three times, singing Happy, Downtown and We Found Love.

This year's tour line up also saw X Factor's first wildcard in Seann Miley Moore who made his presence known by first joining 4th Impact for Fancy before paying tribute the late David Bowie with Life On Mars.

But it was XFactor champ Louisa Johnson who headlined the show and she didn’t disappoint with a final 20 minute set which started off with Fighter.

The 18-year-old went on to belt out songs including Let It Go, Billie Jean and her winner's track Forever Young before closing with It's A Man's World.

All eight of the stars ended the show on stage with a huge group encore performance before moving on to Glasgow tomorrow.
