Emily Middlemas, Saara Aalto and Sam Lavery team up for a performance together on the X Factor tour.

This year's live arena shows kicked off in Nottingham last week as the top eight finalists from last year's series hit the stage.

They are winner Matt Terry together with finalists Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight.

And they're joined by Emily Middlemas, Honey G, Ryan Lawrie, Samantha Lavery and Four Of Diamonds.

On the tour, the group reprise songs from last year's show and there are a few brilliant collaborations between the acts too.

In one performance, Sam, Saara and Emily hit the stage together with a cover of No More Tears.

Speaking about the X Factor tour recently, Sam told The Newcastle Chronicle: “I’m so so excited. It’s come round so quick. As soon as the dates came out I looked for the Newcastle date. I just know it’s going to be my favourite one of the tour.

“Even if I hadn’t made the cut I would have gone. I’ve been to The X Factor tour with my mam before and I always said it was my dream to be on the stage.”

And Sam said she planned to take her fellow contestants on a night out when in the city.

“I’m also going to take a few of the X Factor lot on a tour of Newcastle if we have time, oh and perfect their Geordie accents!” she said.

Other performances from the tour include a duet from couple Ryan and Emily, singing an intimate cover of Birdy's Wings to one another in the centre of the arena on the B Stage.

As well as that, there's a battle of the bands with Four Of Diamonds and 5 After Midnight pairing up together for an amazing Spice Girls cover that moves into Beyonce's Crazy In Love.
