Singer-songwriter Grace Davies and Watford boyband Rak-Su will face-off in this Sunday’s final. They’ve both topped the viewers’ vote during the live shows, so either of them could win.
All three competed on Saturday, but it was Kevin Davy White who had the lowest number of audience votes on Saturday finished in third place and was sent home. The remaining two then advanced to Sunday night’s show to fight for this year’s X Factor title.
Who’s singing what?
The songs Grace and Rak-Su will be performing on Sunday night have been revealed…
Grace will sing original songs Nothing But Words and Too Young, while Rak-Su will hit us with their originals Touché and Mona Lisa.
Oh yes. Pink, Louis Tomlinson, Sam Smith and X Factor veterans Little Mix will be performing this weekend.
In what capacity? We’re not exactly sure, but they could be dueting with the finalists. The competing acts have hinted they’re singing with some major stars this weekend, but couldn’t say exactly who when asked by Radiotimes.com.
Grace Davies told us she’d be on stage with “an amazing artist. Someone who I am a big fan of, and have been for a really long time”. She also revealed she’d been rehearsing and chilling with the mystery artist – “It was nice to just sit there and, off-camera, just get to know the song, and get to know them, and just practise, and chill out, and just enjoy it”. Could Davies be singing Pink, a singer similar to herself?
Rak-Su, on the other hand, seemed less sure (perhaps deceptively so) who they’d be performing with. “There’s a couple that Simon’s mentioned to us and we are hoping that it’s somebody that we’ve grown up listening to – the sort of person you wouldn’t normally see on the X Factor stage,” said Ashley. “If it is who we hope it’s going to be, it should be a whole lot of fun.” But could they perform with an act familiar to the competition – could Simon dare to band Little Mix and Rak-Su together in an X Factor supergroup for the weekend?
And Kevin Davy White? He kept very closed-mouth, only saying he’d been singing with “a really nice musician. An artist.” Sam Smith anyone?
Who will win The X Factor 2017?
Grace and Rak-Su have been favourites from the start, and judging by the results of our poll so far, the vote is going to be incredibly close this weekend:
Who are The X Factor 2017 judges?
For the first time since 2010, the show has kept the same line-up as the previous year. That means Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osborne are all returning to the panel.
