X Factor 2016 spoilers! Nicole Scherzinger 'struggles' at six chair challenge

x factor 2016 six chair challenge - 21

Nicole Scherzinger reportedly struggled picking her top acts on The X Factor 2016 at six chairs.

This weekend will see the next stage of the competition play out over two episodes as the 60 or so acts left are more than halved.

Only six in each category will survive the cull and Nicole is in charge of the Boys.

Those going through to six chairs include Christian Burrows, James Hughes, Niall Sexton, Conor McGinty, Matt Terry, Freddy Parker, Nate Simpson, Will Rush, Mike Hough and Jack Booth.

They'll perform one at a time not only for Nicole and the other judges but - for the first time this series - a live audience at Wembley Arena.

Supposedly, Nicole found it difficult to pick which boys to place in the seats and ended up changing her mind more than the one time, asking two of the boys to sing again to help her decide.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, at one point Nicole turned to the cheering/booing crowd and complained: "You guys are making this so hard!"

But Simon Cowell was apparently unimpressed by Nicole's dithering.

"Why’s it hard? There’s only one boy standing there. One seat, one boy," he 'snapped' at her.

The full drama of The X Factor 2016's six chair challenge will play out on Saturday night from 8PM and Sunday night at 7PM on ITV.
