The theme for The X Factor this week is the rather woolly Crazy in Love. So we can probably expect cheesy boyband ballads from Louis’ boys, no doubt a heartfelt self-penned track from Grace Davies and maybe someone actually singing Crazy in Love.
You’ll forgive us for being rather sceptical about this double double elimination, because originally we’d been promised that it was happening the previous week. However there was a last minute change of plan that meant it was just one act on each night who left, and it was Jack and Joel and Alisah Bonaobra .
There’s also now barely any difference between the Saturday and Sunday night shows. Instead of having all the acts perform in one show and the results listed on a Sunday night, the categories are split and the act with the fewest votes leaves that night.
But, the Sunday show still has a small difference and that is the Prize Fight…
Just what is the Prize Fight?
The Prize Fight is a new twist this year that gives the contestants a little bit more incentive to perform to their best each week.
The two best acts of each night, aka the ones with the most votes, have a sing-off to determine the overall winner. Whoever wins, gets a ‘money can’t buy prize’.
