Who’s in The X Factor 2017 live shows is revealed this weekend and here are the favourites to make the cut.
Bookies have priced up those left in the competition and we’ve picked out the top three to see who could be in the live finals.
Of course these aren’t officially who’s in the live shows – that’ll only be revealed at the weekend – simply who the favourites are as it stands.
And if past years are anything to go by, we’ll probably get some surprises, especially when it comes to Louis Walsh’s choices.
X Factor 2017 finalists?
Sam Black 20/1
Spencer Sutherland 25/1
Lloyd Macey 33/1
Sean and Conor Price 6/1
The CutKelvins 16/1
Grace Davies 7/4
Holly Tandy 6/1
Georgina Panton 25/1
Matt Linnen 16/1
Kevin Davy White 28/1
Talia Dean 50/1
Overall it’s Sharon Osbourne and the Girls who look to be in the strongest position but Simon Cowell’s Groups could pose competition.
However Louis’ boys – featuring returning act Sam Black – don’t appear to be well backed going into the judges’ houses stage.
Aoife Heffron, PR Executive for BoyleSports said this week: “Sam Black is back and returns as the strongest of the Boys at 20/1, despite failing to make the six chair challenge round. Once it was announced Sam would be making his return to the X Factor we saw a burst in support for the Isle of Man native, however it has since died off.”
She added “Grace Davies is undoubtedly the one to beat at 7/4 and given that last few winners of the X Factor have been early and longrunning favourites it bodes well for Davies.
“Sean and Conor Price are her main threats in the competition and most certainly have the support of Irish punters to win.”
Who do you want to make the live shows and who should win?
The X Factor 2017 judges’ houses airs Saturday at 8:20PM and Sunday at 7PM on ITV.
