The X Factor

Series 15



The X Factor going live means one thing: it’s time to face the music. Although this year, that applies as much to the judges as it does to the 16 finalists. So far, there hasn’t been an abundance of chemistry between the four judges: husband-and-wife duo Robbie and Ayda Williams, Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell. Has it been lost in the edit over the past seven weeks? Or have they simply not clicked?

Either way, they will now be as exposed as the contestants’ vocals throughout a colossal live launch before tomorrow’s results show. The “Prize Fight” has been dumped this series (phew) and the Sunday sing-off makes a welcome return.


Dermot O'Leary hosts the first of the live shows. The remaining 16 acts will perform to impress judges Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and Ayda Williams - as well as the viewing public at home. This year, Simon will be coaching the Girls, Louis has the Boys, Robbie will take on the Groups and Ayda has the Overs.
