Alisah Bonaobra will be taking a big risk on The X Factor 2017 this weekend.

14 finalists remain in the competition after the opening weekend saw two contestants given the boot.

At least two more acts are expected to leave this weekend as the finalists sing over Saturday and Sunday night once again in their categories.

However this week there's a slight change.

This time around the Boys and Groups are first up on Saturday while the Girls and Overs will sing on the Sunday evening with this week's Viva Latino theme.

Ahead of her performance on Sunday evening, Girls' competitor Alisah has teased her plans.

After being criticised for playing it safe with diva ballads, Alisah will be taking on Jennifer Lopez's Let's Get Loud this weekend.

"So this week we'll have Viva Latino for a theme and I'm very excited because you will get to see a different side of me," she said. "I am not one dimensional."

Speaking in her latest X Factor diary, Alisah added: "And I really miss my family but my mum's watching for me so I want you all to be proud of me, so let's do this!"

Once again this week, at the end of each live show a public vote will decide which one act is immediately given the boot with the bottom two sing-off axed.

Instead, the acts who top Saturday and Sunday's vote face off in a new 'prize fight' to win a special reward.

The X Factor 2017 continues this Saturday at 8:20PM and Sunday night at 7:05PM on ITV.

Guest stars will be BGT winner Tokio Myers on the Saturday and Rita Ora on the Sunday.
