X Factor 2017 tour: Watch highlights from the live arena shows

Here's a look at some of the highlights from The X Factor 2017 live tour, which is currently hitting the UK and Ireland.

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

Those on the bill for The X Factor tour in 2017 are finalists Matt Terry, 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 finalists hit the stage with performances from last year's live shows as well as a few special collaborations.


Performances include Four Of Diamonds and 5 After Midnight pairing together for a Spice Girls cover while lovebirds Ryan and Emily also sing with one another, performing an intimate cover of Birdy's Wings in the centre of the audience.

Emily also teams up with Sam and Saara on a belting performance of No More Tears that sees the girls singing in the crowd before hitting the main stage together.

You can watch a few clips from some of the performances in our highlights video above.
