X Factor 2014 live shows: 10 songs we do NOT want to hear

BANNED X Factor tracks

Ben Haenow (X Factor 2014)

The X Factor 2014 live shows kick off this Saturday night as ahead of the songlist, we've put together the songs we DON'T want to hear.

Over the years The X Factor has become known for its rather boring, cliched and repetitive song list.

The show's judges often go on about acts being 'fresh' or 'current' before telling them to sing over down diva hits by the likes of Jennifer Hudson or Whitney Houston.

Great songs, but ones which do get boring when done on the show for the tenth time.

With that in mind, here's our list of BANNED X Factor songs.

Prince's Purple Rain

Unless you're going to better Ruth Lorenzo, don't bother.

Anything by Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey

Add in Celine Dion too while we're at it. Done to Death.

Anything by Emeli Sandé

Clown and Read All About It especially.

Say Something

We've heard this at least three times already this year.

Listen and And I Am Telling You

Even if you can nail these songs, we'd much prefer to hear something new.

Relight My Fire

And all other ridiculously tenuous 'Halloween' songs.

Feeling Good

Need we say more?

Most Adele tracks

In particular Someone Like You and Make You Feel My Love.

A Thousand Years and Jar of Hearts

Christina Perri has a lot to thank The X Factor for.

Bleeding Love

It just never works
