X Factor spoilers! Ryan Lawrie's song choice for first live show revealed

Ryan Lawrie X Factor

Ryan Lawrie has revealed his first song choice for The X Factor 2016 live shows.

And he teased he'd be thinking about fellow contestant Emily Middlemas while performing.

Chatting on the Xtra Factor, Ryan confirmed the pair are seeing one another after both getting through to the finals.

Singing live for the first time this week, Ryan has said he'll be be belting out One Direction's Perfect.

It was third time lucky for Ryan on The X Factor tonight having originally been given a no at Six Chair Challenge as part of a group put together by the judges.

And that was after he was first given a no at bootcamp as a soloist.

Simon Cowelll liked what he saw throughout and gave Ryan the wild card spot in Nicole Scherzinger's boys category.

She told him in tonight's judges' houses: "I know I didn't choose you to be my wild card and after your audition yesterday I understand why Simon did.

"My worry is I don't know why you initially didn't stand out to me. I think it's a really big risk for me to take you through. I'm sorry Ryan but I'm just crazy enough to take the risk. I'm taking you through to the live shows with me."

Ryan is joined in the live shows for the Boys category with Matt Terry and Freddy Parker.

Freddy said on the Xtra Factor he was hoping to move away from behind the piano and show a different side of his music.

"I would love to dance so much, if I get through week one you can expect to see it soon," he said on ITV.

The X Factor 2016 airs LIVE on ITV next Saturday and Sunday night from 8PM.
