It's the first X Factor 2011 live show tonight and backstage we reckon the final 16 are going to be bricking it as they prepare to sing for the nation. With no public vote this week and the judges completely in charge of who stays or goes, Gary gives his view on the final four boys...
On Sunday night each of the panellists will have to cut one act from their category, based only on tonight's performance.
So what does Gary think at the moment?
On [tag]Frankie Cocozza[/tag] "I just think he's ace, he's great. I've been really taken aback about how nervous and focused he's been. That's a side of Frankie I wasn't expecting. When I told him, he was really sorry. I want him just as he is."
On [tag]James Michael[/tag]: "I'm really, really, taking a risk on him. I am, I told him that. I wanted to take a risk on him. I think you've got to watch out for these guys, the ones creep up on you late."
On [tag]Craig Colton[/tag]: "We all love Craig, total class, great personality, great story. When he starts to sing everyone wants to listen, he was the performance of the day [at judges' houses]. He totally nailed it."
On [tag]Marcus Collins[/tag]: "Marcus just makes me smile. He gives me some of those performances that... he's happy to be up there! This guy is loving doing this and translates off the stage."
Sounds like James has to prove himself this evening...
But who do you love? Tune into The X Factor 2011 tonight on ITV1 from 7:30PM to watch the performances!
