The X Factor song choices for Queen vs Michael Jackson revealed

Simon Cowell, Mel B, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's final nine acts face one tough challenge this weekend as they battle it out with Queen and Michael Jackson songs

There are now nine acts left in the X Factor competition and what better way to separate the weak from the wonderful than with a Queen vs Michael Jackson sing-off. 


We’ve already had a taste of Mr Jackson during last week’s Halloween special with Fleur East’s show-stopping Thriller performance, but we can’t wait to see some of the others bust out their King of Pop moves, or perhaps some of Freddie Mercury’s. Especially Stevi Ritchie. Set record for that one. 

The song choices are as follows:

Mel B’s boys

Andrea Faustini: Queen’s Somebody to Love

Paul Akister: Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s girls

Lauren Platt: Michael Jackson’s I’ll Be There

Louis Walsh’s groups

Only the Young: Michael Jackson’s Blame It On The Boogie

Stereo Kicks: Michael Jackson’s: You Are Not Alone

Simon Cowell’s overs

Ben Haenow: Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror

Fleur East: Michael Jackson’s Will You Be There

Jay James: Queen’s The Show Must Go On

Stevi Ritchie: Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody
