Rak-Su have been revealed as the winner of the second public vote on The X Factor.
Tonight saw the second half of the first weekend of The X Factor 2017’s live shows with a brand new format.
The contestants this year are performing on separate nights in their categories and this evening the Overs and Groups were in the spotlight, following the Boys and Girls who sang yesterday.
After the Overs and Groups’ debut performances live for the first time, the public vote opened.
In the format this year there is no sing off and the results are on the same night, decided by the viewer poll alone.
Ranked bottom was Talia Dean and she therefore became the second act who was voted off The X Factor this year.
But at the other end Rak-Su topped the public poll, host Dermot O’Leary revealed. The placings of the remaining Overs and Groups contestants were not disclosed.
This year, rather than a sing-off between the bottom acts, there will be a sing-off between the acts who topped the votes on Saturday and Sunday night.
They will compete for a prize, which this week is a masterclass session with P!nk in New York.
Graces Davies in the Girls category topped Saturday’s vote, so she will now sing off against Rak-Su this evening for the prize.
Meanwhile, a total of 14 now remain in the competition’s final stages after Talia’s exit and Spencer Sutherland’s departure on Saturday.
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, Sam Black and wildcard Leon Mallett and Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs Kevin Davy White, Matt Linnen and Tracy Leanne Jefford.
The X Factor 2017 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
