PICTURES! See X Factor's Boys performing at judges' houses

The X Factor 2017's top six boys sing for a spot in the live shows tonight.

Last Sunday evening saw Louis Walsh take control of the Boys category this year and he had the very tough task of whittling them down to just six for judges' houses.

The six chair challenge at Wembley Arena saw LOTS of drama and an impromptu sing off as Louis found it difficult selecting who to give a seat to.

His decisions shocked the panel but it was Louis who had all the power and made up his mind.

At the end of it all, six contestants were left with a seat through to judges' houses.

They include Lloyd Macey, a 24 year-old student from The Valleys, South Wales and Leon Mallett, a 22-year-old pub singer from Norwich. Leon originally auditioned with his brother Alex as a duo, ITG.

Joining them are Spencer Sutherland, a 24-year-old singer from Ohio, USA and Aidan Martin, a 27-year-old barman from London.

And rounding things off are Jack Mason, a 18-year-old busker from Aldershot and Sam Black, who returns to replace Anthony Russell who quit the show.

The six guys are now just one step away from making the live shows later this month.

Tonight we'll see them competing for one of three spots in the final stage as they fly off to Istanbul to meet mentor Louis, who is joined by guest judge Mika.

The acts have just one more chance to impress Louis and Nika, with each contestant hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the live shows.
