X Factor wild card POLL! Who should get a wildcard spot in the live shows?

Will there be an X Factor 2016 wild card?


There's no news (yet) on a wild card for The X Factor 2016 live shows - but who should get one?

Last Sunday night saw the X Factor UK finalists confirmed as Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne completed their judges' houses with the Boys and Overs respectively.

Earlier on Saturday, we saw Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh pick their finalists in their respective Girls and Groups categories.

There were a LOT of controversial decisions and shock exits over the weekend.

We said goodbye to former favourite to win Caitlyn Vanbeck in the girls category, Louis Walsh axed all of his girl groups and Sharon Osbourne's choices in the Overs category caused chaos.

Sharon said no to Janet Grogan, Samantha Atkinson, James Wilson and Christopher Peyton as she took through a trio including Honey G instead.

Angered so much by the outcome, over 16,000 people have now signed a petition to add a wild card act to the current final 12.

X Factor 2016 wild card

Wild cards have of course become a bit of an X Factor staple over the last few years but this series saw them introduced at the judges' houses stage instead.

Each judge got to pick an extra seventh act for another category and three of the four - Sam Lavery, Saara Aalto and Ryan Lawrie - went on to make the live shows.

With that in mind it seems unlikely we'll see another wild card twist this year.

BUT, if we did, who should get a second chance? Vote for who you would give a wild card spot to in our poll below....

The X Factor live shows begin this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
