The auditions are over and it’s time for boot camp. The judges were assigned their categories to mentor. Check out the video below.
Tonight’s episode starts with the first boot camp challenge that will be only briefly shown. 114 acts made it from the arena auditions to boot camp, but only 57 will pass the first round of boot camp and will get to meet their mentors. The second round of boot camp is a 6 chair challenge. Tonight we will see Cheryl Fernandez-Versini make some tough decisions as she picks her TOP 6 girls.
In other news, the latest spoilers say we will have wildcards again this year. The judges will each pick 3 acts for the live shows at the judges’ houses round and then each judge will pick a wildcard (presumably from the remaining three acts that didn’t get chosen), but not for their own category. Cheryl (mentors the girls) will pick an extra boy, Mel B (mentors the boys) will pick another group, Louis (mentors the groups) will pick and extra Over, and Simon (mentors the Overs) will pick an extra girl. This means the live shows will start with 16 acts.
Th 6 chairs are ready. The arena is full of people.
Lola Saunders – Finally (Cece Peniston)
A mess. But the crowd seems to be animated. Mel says she could have done a lot better. Louis agrees. Simon says he liked the first part of the song, but not the second part when she started screaming. The crowd doesn’t agree. Cheryl agrees with Mel. The crowd demands a seat for Lola and she is given the first seat.
Chloe Jasmine – I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys)
She is wearing a nice dress in bronze/nude color. Interesting song choice, but the performance wasn’t that great. Cheryl gives her a seat.
Shanay Holmes – Read All About It (Emeli Sande)
Vocally she is better than the previous two girls, but boring. She gets a seat.
Stephanie Nala – Wicked Game (Chris Isaak)
Everyone loves her. Gets a seat.
Orla Keogh – Just Be Good To Me (S.O.S. Band)
She has purple hair. Simon says it was a bit indulgent, but Cheryl gives her a seat.
Monica Michael – Troublemaker (Olly Murs)
She had a great room audition with an original song. I don’t think song choice is good for her, but from the technical standpoint it’s not too bad. The audience enjoys it. Louis says the standard is high this year. Mel like it. Simon says it was a good audition, but not fantastic. Cheryl is also puzzled by the song choice. The crowd demands a seat, but Cheryl decides against it. The crows boos.
Kayleigh Manners – Ho Hey (The Lumineers)
Cheryl decides not to give her a seat.
Ten Senah – Love On Top (Beyonce)
Pales in comparison to the original. Cheryl decides not to give her a seat.
Emily Middlemas – Anything Could Happen (Ellie Goulding)
She is the youngest in the competition. The producers reminds Cheryl that if she gives a seat to anyone under 16, Cheryl can’t swap that contestant for another one. Emily finally ditches her guitar. Looks like she also has some stage presence. The crowd loves her. They demand a seat for Emily and Simon agrees with them. She gets the 6th chair.
Chloe O’Gorman – I Didn’t Know My Own Strength (Whitney Houston)
Pretty good, not karaoke. The crowd demands a seat. Mel B says the song was too big for her, Simon thinks she has massive potential and can’t leave the competition. Cheryl decides to swap Chloe O’Gorman and eliminates Chloe Jasmine. Simon wants Cheryl to change her mind?
Lauren Platt – Man In The Mirror (Michael Jackson)
Nice vocal. The crowd demands a seat. Cheryl decides to give her a chair and eliminates Chloe O’Gorman. Wow. Chloe Jasmine hugs her backstage.
Kerrianne Covell – Gravity (Sara Bareilles)
She sounds good, but the song choice could be better. Louis thinks she has to get a seat. Simon expected a bit more in the end. Crowd demands a swap. Cheryl gives her a seat and eliminates Shanay Holmes.
The crowd isn’t happy. Cheryl is telling them that’s her choice. There are no more girls left and Cheryl feels like she made a mistake. She wants to bring back Chloe Jasmine. Cheryl says she wants versatility in her group. She decides to eliminate Orla Keogh.
Tomorrow, we will see the boys and overs fight for chairs.

The bubbly brunette oozed confidence on stage as she danced around in a white tutu and trainers and finish to the sound of a standing ovation.

‘BIG mistake’: Mel B makes dramatic exit as she slams Cheryl Fernandez-Versini for unpopular X Factor decisions
They’ve been given directly conflicting categories, and Mel B was definitely having her say when it came to Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s decisions on Friday night.
The singer formerly known as Scary Spice stormed off the stage in the evening episode after Cheryl repeatedly swapped singers in her female category, even after all of them had performed.
Mel, who has the Boys category while Cheryl will mentor the Girls, said that the 31-year-old had made a ‘big mistake’ and that she would have done things very differently when she selected Stephanie Nala, Lola Saunders, Kerrianne Covell, Chloe Jasmin, Emily Middlemas and Lauren Platt.
