X Factor 2016: Watch James Hughes take on the six chair challenge

Here's a preview of The X Factor 2016 six chair challenge as James Hughes takes to the stage.

And he certainly knows how to put on a show.

Singing for mentor Nicole Scherzinger - plus the few thousand X Factor fans in the audience at Wembley Arena - James belts out Tina Turner's Proud Mary and it certainly seems to have the crowd wanting to give him a seat.

But it's not down to them, it's Nicole who has all the power - will she place James in a seat and, most importantly, will he keep it?

By the end of this weekend we'll know just who's through to judges' houses as the acts in each of the four categories are reduced to just six potential live show finalists.

In last Sunday's bootcamp episode the judges got their categories for this year's series: Simon Cowell is in charge of the girls, Nicole Scherzinger has the guys, Sharon Osbourne is with the over 25s and Louis Walsh - gasp - has the groups.

In the six chair challenge this weekend, the remaining singers in each category will perform one at a time with their own, hopefully winning, song choice, singing for all the judges and a live audience at Wembley.

It'll be their first time in front of a crowd on this years show and while those watching on will have plenty to say, as will the judges, it'll be each category's mentor that has ultimate power.

They'll decide who to place in a seat, representing a spot at judges' houses and they'll also have to decide who to switch and swap as the performances continue.

Only those left sitting down at the end of it all be safe leaving everyone else to go home.

The X Factor 2016 six chair challenge airs Saturday from 8PM on ITV and continues Sunday night at the earlier time of 7PM.
