Rak-Su have been revealed as the winner of the seventh public vote on The X Factor.
Tonight saw the latest stage of the live shows of The X Factor 2017 with a brand new format.
The 10 remaining contestants this year are performing on separate nights in their categories and the Boys and Groups were first up this weekend.
After their latest performances live tonight, the acts had a nervous wait as the public vote opened.
In the new format, this year there is no sing off and the results are on the same night, decided by the viewer poll alone.
Ranked bottom were Sam Black and duo Sean and Conor Price who were voted off the show in a double elimination.
But at the other end Rak-Su topped the public poll for a third time, 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.
Rak-Su will therefore perform again on Sunday evening against the top ranked contestant in the Overs and Girls category. They will compete for a prize, which this week is a trip to LA to spend time in the studio with a top songwriter.
Meanwhile, on Sunday there will also be another double elimination as the lowest ranked of the Girls and Overs in the next vote is sent home.
A total of 8 now remain in the competition’s final stages ahead of Sunday’s show.
They are Simon Cowell’s Groups Rak-Su and The CutKelvins, Sharon Osbourne’s Girls Grace Davies, Rai-Elle Williams, and Holly Tandy.
Plus Louis Walsh’s last Boy Lloyd Macey and Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.
The X Factor 2017 continues Sunday night on ITV from the earlier time of 7:30PM with the Boys and Girls performances.
Fergie will be performing plus another contestant will be heading home.
