Emily Middlemas

Emily Middlemas is in The X Factor 2016 live shows and has revealed her first song choice.

The Scottish teenager is one of the final three girls in this year's competition and through to the live finals.

And she's announced that her very first live live song will be Toxic by Britney Spears, with her trusted guitar.

Earlier tonight we saw Emily make the live shows after NAILING her latest performance at judges' houses.

It was Emily's second time at judges' houses having previously been given a no by Cheryl Cole back in 2014.

Before singing for new mentor Simon Cowell and his guest judges Mel B and Emma Bunton in California, Emily told cameras: "There is a lot of pressure on me today.

"I've been this close before and I didn't get through to the live shows. I was devastated but I was really, really, young. I was 15.

"This is the most important performance of my life. I don't want to let this opportunity slip away because it could break me."

After singing Elle King's Ex’s and Oh’s, Emily was met with a round of applause from her small but daunting audience.

Mel B commented: "That was the perfect song for you."

Simon raved: "It shows your personality. You've got this quirkiness about you. I like the fact you don't hide behind the guitar."

When it came to the decisions, Simon told Emily: "What I liked about yesterday is I really started to understand who you were as an artist. You've come back stronger. I believe the public want to see you in the finals."

Emily is joined in the live shows by Samantha Lavery and Gifty Louise in the girls category.

The X Factor 2016 airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
