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.
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.
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.
It just never works
