X Factor 2018: Cheryl and Tom Walker to perform in 'Big Band' week

Tonight's The X Factor 2018 results saw another two contestants voted off - but who left? This evening was the fourth X Factor results show following Saturday's Movie themed performances. Songs from hit films ranging from this year's The Greatest Showman and A Star Is Born to classics like Titanic and Flashdance got The X Factor treatment before lines opened. Sunday saw the results revealed as two more contestants made their exits from the competition. And it was Misunderstood and Giovanni Spano who left The X Factor in tonight's show. In the results episode, the public vote was first frozen before host Dermot O'Leary announced the act with the fewest votes who was going home immediately. With the fewest total votes from the public, it was duo Misunderstood who were eliminated in a surprise result. Lines then re-opened for voting of the remaining acts as Olly Murs and Michael Buble took to the stage. Once lines closed for good, Dermot returned to reveal the next two acts with the fewest votes as Giovanni Spano and duo Acacia & Aaliyah. They went head to head in the sing off. Acacia & Aaliyah performed K-Ci & JoJo's All My Life while Giovanni sang Robbie Williams' Let Me Entertain You. The judges then had to decide who to send home, with guest judge Nile Rodgers sitting in for an absent Robbie Williams. Nile and Ayda both stuck by their acts, sending home Gio and Acacia & Aaliyah respectively. Ayda Williams and Louis Tomlinson both sent Gio home, leaving Acacia & Aaliyah to stay in the competition after a second week in the sing-off. Now just eight acts remain in the contest. Alongside Acacia & Aaliyah, they are Anthony Russell, Danny Tetley, Bella Penfold, Scarlett Lee, and Shan Ako. Rounding off the current crop of contestants are Brendan Murray and Dalton Andre Harris. The X Factor returns next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV with Big Band week, featuring Cheryl and Tom Walker.

The X Factor 2018 will welcome Cheryl and Tom Walker next weekend it's been announced.

The X Factor went live for the fourth time on Saturday and Sunday with a 'Movie' theme live show.


Two acts were eliminated in the X Factor 2018 results while there were guest performances from former X Factor runner up Olly Murs as well as Michael Buble.

Next week's show will see a performance from another X Factor star, former judge Cheryl who will be singing new single Love Made Me Do It. She'll be joined by Scottish singer-songwriter Tom Walker.

Fans are already excited, with one tweeting following the announcement: "Cheryl on the show next week #xfactor CHERYL CHERYL"

Another wrote: "OMFG @CherylOfficial is performing next week on @TheXFactor #XFactor"

A third reacted: "Yes Cheryl is back next Sunday @CherylOfficial 👏🏽🙌🏽❤️😬😊 #XFactor"



Meanwhile, host Dermot O'Leary announced that the next theme would see X Factor head to the promos for a Big Band week.

As always, the acts will be singing for judges Simon Cowell, Ayda Williams and Louis Tomlinson, however Robbie Williams won't be present. Due to touring commitments, he'll be unable to make it for another weekend.

Following the latest two exits of the series, a total of 8 acts are currently left in the competition.

In the Boys category mentored by Louis are Anthony Russell, Brendan Murray and Dalton Andre Harris. The Overs with Ayda Williams are made up of just Danny Tetley.


The Girls with Simon Cowell are Bella Penfold, Scarlett Lee, and Shan Ako. Finally, the Groups led by Robbie Williams are down to only duo Acacia and Aaliyah.
