The X Factor 2016's 'random' jukebox has spoken and this weekend is Halloween week.
She was eliminated in the sing off against Four Of Diamonds, while Ryan Lawrie was saved from the bottom three (again) thanks to the new 'life line' vote twist.
After the gut-wrenching elimination, host Dermot O’Leary was joined on stage by the remaining nine contestants to decide the next theme.
Dermot gave the new X Factor Jukebox wheel its latest spin last night to reveal to the remaining contestants and the viewers at home the following week’s theme.
And the third theme chosen supposedly randomly by the Jukebox for next weekend was Fright Night.
Handy, given next weekend is Halloween.
Dermot insisted the result was totally bona fide and not at all set up, but basically no one believed it for a second.
I wish they'd stop pretending it's random. Of course someone is stopping the jukebox. Just cut the crap already. #xfactor

So now we know that the jukebox is a fix. Just like the rest of the show I guess. #xfactor

Who'd have thought that the RANDOM jukebox would give us Fright Night for the Halloween week 🙄#XFactor

Don't think we need any additional proof about the jukebox thing being rigged, do we? #xfactor

X factor must think the viewers are stupid the jukebox is rigged like everything else on the show #XFactor

Presumably it was just a delightful coincidence.
The X Factor 2016 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM with the spontaneous Halloween special.
