Episode 23: The X Factor

Summary

Last week saw Four of Diamonds' X Factor journey come to an end as they were beaten in the sing-off by Finnish dynamo Saara Aalto. She and the rest of the acts now take to the stage once more - and this week they are performing disco classics as they hope to keep their dream alive. As always, Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh take their seats at the judges' desk, as the would-be stars sing in front of the panel - and the nation. Dermot O'Leary keeps things ticking over.

Review

What will it take to save The X Factor? The former juggernaut is suffering serious Saturday night defeat against Strictly in the ratings, and with winter saviours Ant and Dec due to swing in for another series of I’m a Celeb on Sunday we wouldn’t be surprised if this week’s evictee took the Jake Quickenden route and hopped straight on a plane to Australia after the live elimination. But hey – there’s always hope. Maybe the spinning totally-not-at-all-fixed jukebox of weekly themes will FINALLY throw out “Louis Loves”. Saturday nights could still be ITV’s with just a few key changes, stools and Jedward mash-up medleys.
