X Factor 2017: The top performances from George Michael week

tellymix logo

It was George Michael week on The X Factor and here are the top performances based on online hits and shares.

It was the third of the live shows on Saturday and Sunday night as the remaining 12 finalists performed for viewer votes for the latest time this year.

Alisah Bonaobra was the unlucky act that was sent home by UK viewers, but internationally she continues to prove popular.

Alisah’s performance tops our rundown this week with over a million people watching the Filipino’s take on George Michael’s Praying For Time.

Rak-Su settle for second place while Alisah’s fellow Girls category contenders round off the top 4.

Alisah Bonaobra

Once again ranking top of the girls, Alisah perhaps played it too safe with another big ballad at the weekend. While many people have been watching her performance online, they failed to vote to keep her in.



After two original songs, Rak-Su performed their first cover on The X Factor 2017 at the weekend. Their twist on Faith split viewers, but clearly many did approve as it ranks second on our weekly countdown.


Grace Davies

Some viewers suggested Grace ‘cheated’ by not performing an original George Michael song, but that criticism aside the performance did win over fans.


Rai-Elle Williams

At just 16, Rai-Elle took on a George Michael classic and made it her own to round off this week’s rankings.
