X Factor 2016: Christian Burrows' passionate performance sees him into judges' houses

Christian Burrows

Christian Burrows has made it through to X Factor 2016's judges' houses after the Six Chair Challenge.

Christian gave an a passionate performance during this evening's show at Wembley Arena.

The 19 year-old VIP nightclub supervisor from Bolton originally wowed the judges with an original track at his audition, saying: "This competition is everything to me. If I was to make it big I'd put my family first, I'd put them in a massive house.

"This is what I want to be doing for the rest of my life, this is my chance and I'm going to take it with everything I've got."

Christian went on to perform John Denver's Take Me Home but after being stopped by Simon Cowell, instead opted for an original song, Thunder Buddy.

The track was about Christian's late bother and he revealed to the judges: "It's a song that means everything to me, only my mum's heard it."

"Thank you for sharing that with us Christian," said Simon after the performance. "You've got a real talent, I think you're great with lyrics and I like you."

Having made it through to the Six Chair Challenge this evening, Christian belted out Michael Buble's Feeling Good at Wembley Arena with an original spin.

Simon Cowell commented: "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."

And mentor Nicole Scherzinger concluded: "That was crazy!"

But with all her seats full and unsure who, if anyone, to switch out, Nicole proposed a sing off.

"I don't know if this has ever been done before and this is a really hard decision for me..." she explained before asking Matt Terry, who already had a seat, to sing again.

However in a twist, Nicole put BOTH through and instead cut Luca Valenti's seat.

With a chair, Christian is through to judges' houses but will he make the live shows?
