x factor six chair acts

The top X Factor 2016 contestants in the six chair challenge have today been revealed.

We've had a total of seven audition shows and thorough that time the thousands of singers that applied were whittled down to just over 100 for bootcamp tonight.

They in turn were halved to about sixty acts who will go through to next weekend's six chair challenge where just six in each category will make it to bootcamp.

Here's a non-exhaustive recap of the acts who have made the cut into the next stage...

They're now through the auditions and bootcamp and one stage away from judges' houses.

Unfortunately that one stage is the dreaded six chair challenge, being held in front of a live audience at Wembley Arena this Saturday and Sunday night.

In the six chair challenge, the acts will have one chance to impress their mentor who alone has the power to pick the singers to take to judges' houses with them.

Following the judges' houses, the six contestants left in each category will fly across the globe to sing for a spot in the LIVE SHOWS.
