Here's a moment by moment account - and sort of review - of The X Factor 2016 live tour.

This year's live show (BUY TICKETS HERE) kicked off in Aberdeen last night with eight finalists from last year's series hit the stage.

Things got off to a bang with a dance breakdown before Reggie n Bollie jumped onto the stage with their first performance of the evening, I Like To Move It.

Che was on next and his vocals on Tears Dry On Their Own / Ain't No Mountain High Enough were as on point as his suit - and the mash up proved a hit.

Also charming the crowd was Mason Noise who showed off some rather epic dancing in his first performance of the night, Sorry.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini then appeared via video to introduce 4th Impact who definitely proved to be the biggest performers of the show, belting out Bang Bang before an on-stage costume change saw them smash Ain't No Other Man. Tiny girls, HUGE vocals!

Elegant Lauren Murray started her performances with You Don't Own Me, looking and sounding flawless, before Anton Stephans performed Dance With My Father.

Anton proved a surprising fan favourite as he continued his set, singing One Sweet Day. His trademark facial expressions haven't gone away!

4th Impact then returned - via the crowd - for a special collab as Seann Miley Moore joined them for a VERY sassy mash up of Rich Girl and Fancy, before the girls left Seann on his own for The Show Must Go On.

Lauren's standout solo performance came from One Last Time while Che kept the talent coming as he returned with When A Man Loves A Woman.

Reggie N Bollie moved into the audience for their next mash up, Who Let The Dogs Out, and then went on to teach us all how to 'whip' and azonto.

The first half then came to a close with a group performance (minus Louisa) of Happy, complete a huge explosion of confetti and balloons.

A 25 minute interval later and things kicked off again with another group (still minus Louisa) performance, opening the second half with Downtown.

Reggie N Bollie stayed on stage for What A Feeling / Boom Boom Boom ahead of Simon Cowell introducing Anton again for a passionate cover of I Am Changing.

Mason then hit the stage with Men In Black, followed by another dance breakdown before switching it up to show a very different side. Sitting on the end of the stage, Mason impressed with a cover of Lost Without You.

Lauren went on to Hold Back The Rivers while Seann performed a tribute to the late David Bowie with Live On Mars, having been introduced by Nick Grimshaw.

4th Impact were out for their final solo performances next, first singing Sound Of The Underground / The Clapping Song and then slowing things down for I'll Be There, dedicating the song to their mum who was in the audience.

Che and Lauren's impressive vocals continued as they teamed up for Valerie, a definite highlight of the evening, before Reggie n Bollie closed the main set of performances with What Makes You Beautiful.

It was then over to champ Louis Johnson who, based on cheers, most were excited to see.

The teenager made a far from subtle entrance by singing Fighter followed by Billie Jean with an epic dance breakdown.

Let It Go came next followed by her winner's song Forever Young, unusually not closing her set. Instead, Louisa brought the show to quite the end by lending her ridiculous voice to It's A Man's World.

Finally, for the encore, all eight acts shared the the stage for the first and final time as they belted out We Found Love to bring the evening to a close.
