Last weekend, Scarlett Lee opened the latest live show with Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli before Brendan Murray took to the stage with Say Something by A Great Big World.

Shan Ako sang Summertime by Billie Holiday, Anthony Russell performed Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin and duo Acacia & Aaliyah sang an original song called ‘Act Our Age’.

Bella Penfold performed Strong by London Grammar with an original rap while Dalton Harris belted out Listen by Beyonce.

Closing the show, Danny Tetley sang My Way by Frank Sinatra as the fifth week of the competition drew to a close.

Bella found herself eliminated with the fewest votes before Acacia & Aaliyah faced Shan in the sing-off.

It was Acacia & Aaliyah’s third time having to sing for their place in the competition but it was one time favourite to win Shan who lost her place in the contest in a truly surprising result.


The X Factor 2018 live shows return Saturday at 8PM on ITV with the latest results on Sunday as the four finalists are confirmed.

It’ll be a Mamma Mia themed special, featuring the stars of Abba themselves.
