The X Factor 2017's next theme and guest stars have been confirmed.

Last weekend saw the second round of new look live shows, which began with the Boys and Groups singing on Saturday night where Leon Mallett went home and Rak-Su topped the vote.

On Sunday, the Overs and Girls sang and it was Tracy Leanne Jefford who was voted off while Kevin Davy White won the vote.

Kevin then beat Rak-Su in a new 'prize fight' twist, in place of the ditched bottom two sing off.

The X Factor returns this weekend with a new theme, the music of the late George Michael.

Guests stars performing will be One Direction's Harry Styles and Paloma Faith.

Once again, two categories will perform on Saturday's show and two categories on the Sunday night, although which categories will sing when hasn't yet been revealed.

And in a further twist, it'll be a DOUBLE ELIMINATION on both nights.

That means a total of four acts will head home to leave just eight in the competition.

Those with the lowest public votes will be leaving the contest immediately while the top performers battle it out in a sing off for a money cant buy prize.

Currently a total of 12 acts remain in the competition's final stages.

They are Simon Cowell's Groups Rak-Su, The CutKelvins, Sean and Conor Price and wildcard Jack & Joel, Sharon Osbourne's Girls Grace Davies, Rai-Elle Williams, Holly Tandy and wildcard Alisah Bonaobra.

Plus Louis Walsh's Boys Lloyd Macey and Sam Black and Nicole Scherzinger's Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.

The X Factor 2017 continues next Saturday at 8:10PM and Sunday night at 7:30PM on ITV.
