Here are the best of the girls’ Six Chair Challenge performances on The X Factor 2017.
Sunday night saw the Six Chair Challenge begin with Sharon Osbourne in charge of the Girls category.
She had final say over who made judges’ houses but did viewers agree?
We run down the top four performances based on views and online shares since the weekend…
Filipino singer Alisah – who narrowly avoided elimination during the first part of Bootcamp – demonstrated her powerful vocals once more on Celine Dion’s ‘All By Myself’ to get a seat.
“That is how you do it honey, that is how you fight for a seat,” exclaimed Nicole. “I’d give you two seats,” joked Louis.
The final act to compete for a chair was Georgina, whose arena audition was one of Simon’s favourites. Following her piano rendition of Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’, the media supremo again praised her, saying: “There’s something about you. I’m not gonna say this was perfect, because it wasn’t, but what I love is that you give everything you’ve got, you literally lay it on the floor.”
Sharon agreed with his sentiments and gave her a chair.
A force to be reckoned with in the competition, Grace again brought a self-penned song for her Six Chair performance. Named ‘Do It Better’, she explained it was a “sequel” to her touching break-up track ‘Don’t Go’, which she debuted at Bootcamp.
It was another triumph, with Simon joking: “I wouldn’t give you a chair, I’d give you the table, the chairs, my water, my tea, my prawn cocktail Skips, that’s how much I like you!”
16-year-old contender Holly became emotional before taking to the stage, asking: “How do I follow that?” She needn’t have worried, as her performance of Lady Gaga’s ‘The Edge Of Glory’ won rave reviews.
“You didn’t oversing, you took it easy, your delivery was perfect, you’re a very special girl,” gushed Sharon. “I’m not gonna beat around the bush, just sit down!”
