Alisah Bonaobra is seen in tears in a preview for The X Factor 2017 bootcamp.

In a clip shown at the end of last Sunday night’s episode, Alisah was seen sobbing onstage while being comforted by Nicole Scherzinger.

22-year-old singer Alisah is from Manila, Philippines where she finished as runner up on their version of The Voice.

Hoping for better success on The X Factor, Alisah performed Beyoncé’s Listen in last weekend’s room auditions.

Alisah wowed the judges who sent her through to bootcamp with four yeses.

But will the pressure prove too much?

Elsewhere in the bootcamp preview, current favourite to win Grace Davies was seen with her head in her hands as contestants admitted to feeling the pressure.

And there were signs of a bootcamp break up as Simon told one act: “We think you should stay in the competition alone.”

The X Factor 2017 airs Saturday 30th September & Sunday 1st October at 8pm on ITV.

This year the bootcamp stage is split into two, starting with the ‘Wall of Songs’ which made its debut last year.

Contestants have to pick one song from the wall, with each song appearing a number of times. The acts that pick the same song get together as a group to perform it for the judges.

Songs include Shawn Mendes’ ‘Treat You Better’, Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’, David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ and One Direction’s ‘History’.

Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh will judge the acts there and then providing no nonsense feedback.

Simon brands one performance “hideous” while Sharon describes another as “awful”.

Bootcamp, arena auditions.

The panel will decide who will earn a coveted place at the second half of bootcamp – the live arena performances.

There the acts will each take to the stage once more but this time it won’t just be the judges watching on as – for the first time this series – the contestants face a live audience at Wembley Arena.

The acts will perform one at a time before the judges deliberate on who to put forward to the dreaded six chair challenge.
