Here’s a first look of Saturday’s X Factor as Olatunji Yearwood sings at the Six Chair Challenge.

This weekend is another X Factor double bill as the Six Chair Challenge begins.

The acts in each of the four categories will perform one at a time, singing for their mentor, the other judges and a live audience at Wembley.

As always in the six chair challenge, it’ll be each category’s mentor that has ultimate power. They’ll decide who to place in a seat, representing a spot at judges’ houses.

On Saturday night, Ayda Williams and her Overs share the spotlight.

One of the acts singing is Trinidad and Tobago native Olatunji Yearwood, who hopes The X Factor will help him get Calypso and Soca music “out there” around the world.

Back at the auditions, Robbie and Ayda were instantly on board with Ola when the producers played the wrong tune, and he sang “no” to get them to change it. He quickly won over the rest of the arena with his original song ‘Bodyline’.

“A lot of people come here and they shy away from this massive moment, but you really grabbed it,” said Louis Tomlinson.

“This is exactly the kind of act I like finding,” smiled Simon Cowell.

In the Six Chair Challenge, dancefloor diva Olatunji Yearwood leaves The X Factor judges smiling with his take on Lou Bega’s Mambo Number 5.

You can watch a preview of his performance above.

Will it get him a chair from Ayda and – most importantly – will he keep it until the end?

Only those left with a seat once everyone has been performed will be safe and through to judges’ houses.

However the Six Chair Challenge this year sees a new twist. Each judge has a Guaranteed Safe Seat to give away.

If the judge likes an act enough, and they definitely want to see them at judges houses they’ll press a golden X and give that act a Safe Seat. The judge can only press this for an act in their own category.

This means the act cannot be swapped out of their chair and they’ll go straight through to judge’s houses.

The X Factor 2018 Six Chair Challenge begins Saturday at 8:35PM on ITV and continues Sunday at 8PM.
