Sky Saron-Wermerling impresses The X Factor 2017 judges in tonight's six chair challenge.

This evening is the start of the Six Chair Challenge for 2017 with the super competitive Girls category, mentored by Sharon Osbourne.

Each of the Girls will take to the stage one at a time, battling for one of six seats which represent places at judges' houses.

While the judges - and the live audience at Wembley Arena - will all offer their opinions, it's up to Sharon alone to decide who gets a chair.

One of those singing for a seat is 19 year-old student from Essex Sky Saron-Wermerling.

We've not yet seen Sky at either of the auditions, bootcamp or arena performances.

But her cover of Ed Sheeran's I'm A Mess impresses the judges in tonight's Six Chair Challenge and even has Dermot O'Leary clapping along from the sidelines.

"You're very brave to come out and do a song like that. I don't think the vocal was perfect but I'd give you a chair," Simon Cowell comments.

However, it's all down to Sharon Osbourne as to whether or not Sky gets a seat - and can keep it.

Another hopeful making their debut appearance on the show tonight is 20 year-old sandwich maker from Lancashire Kelsey Gill, who sings an original song called Scars.

We also once again see Girls from the auditions and bootcamp.

Shanaya Atkinson-Jones sings I Know Where I’ve Been from Hairspray, Taliah Dalorto sings James Bay's Let It Go and Deanna puts her spin on Emeli Sande's My Kind Of Love

20 year-old singer-songwriter and warehouse assistant from Blackburn, Grace Davies returns with a new original song while nervous Nicole Caldwell performs Fatboy Slim's Praise You.

See who gets a seat - and can keep a hold of it - this evening when the Six chair Challenge begins.

The X Factor 2017 airs tonight at 7:30PM on ITV.
