Rak-Su make their bid for judges’ houses on The X Factor 2017 tonight.

And they do so with a brand new original track called Change Your Mind.

Ashley (25), Jamaal (25), Myles (25) and Mustafa (25) are childhood friends from Watford, London who make up the five piece.

They say on the show tonight: “Being friends since school definitely increases the bond we have. From here on in the Six Chair Challenge is about being ourselves and hopefully if we execute properly, we’ll get through.”

After singing, Rak-Su are told by Louis Walsh: “I love the group, I love the energy you brought, everyone was on their feet.”

Sharon Osbourne adds: “You’re just great!”

But it’s Simon Cowell who has all the power tonight.

Last week we saw Simon put in charge of the category for the first time since One Direction.

In the six chair challenge tonight the remaining groups all perform one by one for Simon, the rest of the judges and a huge live audience at Wembley Arena.

It’s their second time in front of a crowd on this year’s show and while those watching on will have plenty to say, it’s Simon who is in charge.

Simon will decide who to place in a seat, representing a spot at judges’ houses as well as who to switch and swap as the performances continue.

Other groups competing for one of the six chairs tonight include duos Afro-Swagg, made up of Adasnoop and Kingsley, Easylife, made up of couple Brad and Sara, pals Jack and Joel and brothers Sean & Conor Price.

Also fighting for a place are a number of girl groups: Beau Road, Beth, Taylor, Eden, Bethany and Cally, Lemonade, Shania, Saffron, twins Yemi and Chilee and Mya and NQ, Georgia, Kiara, Ash, Sasha and Sophie.

The X Factor 2017 airs tonight at 8:15PM on ITV.

The Six Chair Challenge then continues on Sunday night at 7PM.
