X Factor 2016: Boys have a sing off to decide who gets the final seat

Christian Burrows

There's a six chair challenge sing off on The X Factor 2016 tonight as two singers fight for one seat.

The Voice UK meats The X Factor as the two guys battle it out to decide who goes through to judges' houses, but there's a twist in the tale.

It begins when Nicole Scherzinger fills up her six chairs only to be blown away by Christian Burrows.

Christian, who originally wowed the judges at the room auditions with an original song, belts out Michael Buble's Feeling Good at Wembley Arena with an original spin.

Simon Cowell comments: "In terms of how much you want this, this is the most passionate performance we've had from this category I don't know what Nicole's going to do."

Nicole Scherzinger concludes: "That was crazy!"

With all her seats full and unsure who, if anyone, to switch out, Nicole proposes a sing off.

"I don't know if this has ever been done before and this is a really hard decision for me..." she explains.

But even after two extra unplanned performances later, the sing-off doesn't seem to have solved anything.

"Okay boys, this has been such a hard decision for me and I'm just going to go off of my gut and heart right now," Nicole tells the pair before dropping a bombshell.
