X Factor 2016: Craig David and Alicia Keys are performing this weekend

Craig David performs on The X Factor

The next X Factor 2016 live show is looming and the guest performers have been confirmed.

This Sunday night on ITV there will be guest performances from hit maker, songwriter and producer Craig David and Grammy award-winning artist Alicia Keys.

They will appear in the results show following Saturday's movie week themed performances.

Last weekend saw the sixth X Factor 2016 results of the series as Samantha Lavery bowed out of the competition.

She was eliminated in the sing off against Ryan Lawrie with the bottom three life line vote twist now axed.

Just the six acts remain in the running to be crowned The X Factor 2016 winner with the quarter-finals in sight.

This year, Simon Cowell is mentoring the Girls category, now made up of just Emily Middlemas.

Nicole Scherzinger is keeping the Boys in check with Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie left.

Sharon Osbourne still has her two remaining Overs, Honey G and Saara Aalto.

And Louis Walsh now has just the one group left with 5 After Midnight.

After the last gut-wrenching elimination, host Dermot O’Leary was joined on stage by the remaining six contestants to decide the next theme.

This week there was a special twist as the Jukebox transported its way to Australia where hosts Ant and Dec gave it a spin Down Under ahead of I'm A Celebrity 2016's launch.

Just a trio of selections were left including the one we're VERY looking forward to - Louis Loves (the Louis Walsh collection) - still available.

Alas, the latest theme chosen by the Jukebox for this weekend was Movies.

The X Factor 2016 continues Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
