Boys and overs take the 6 chair challenge tonight. It’s gonna be a long episode.
First up are the boys. 14 boys sing for 6 places.
Joe Slater – Desperado (The Eagles)
Joe sings beautifully and plays the piano. Mel B finds it boring. She says this wasn’t a performance for her. Poor guy.
Bre Musiq – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You (Frankie Valli)
It’ a no from Mel B.
Ben Quinlan – 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton)
He works the stage and dances. The performance seems a bit breathy. Mel B looks stunned. She says she can’t give him a seat.
The guys in the waiting room look super concerned now.
Jake Quickenden – A Thousand Years (Christina Perri)
Average vocal. The crowd cheers him on. I think Jake would do better in a boyband, not as a soloist. Audience chants “Seat”. Simon says he would give him a chair. Mel B says she likes his commitment and then gives him her first seat.
Jordan Morris – Be My Baby (The Ronettes)
Another average vocal. After some pleading she gives him the second seat.
Danny Dearden – If You Love Me (Brownstone)
Great vocal, Mel B sends him to his chair.
Geoff Mull – A Thousand Years (Christina Perri)
Better than Jake, but still average. He gets a seat, because he is a fighter.
Charlie Martinez – I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys)
Another “boybander”. Very karaoke rendition. He gets a seat.
Charlie Brown – Give Me Love (Ed Sheeran)
Something is wrong with his guitar? This performance is all wrong. Weird. Simon says he turned into a busker. Mel gives in and gives him a seat.
Jack Walton – Ain’t Nobody (Chaka Khan)
He plays acoustic guitar. Mel B likes his performance and Simon is smiling. He is getting a seat. Charlie Martinez is out.
Hayden Leeman – I Love Rock and Roll (Joan Jett)
Charlie Brown is his friend and he doesn’t want to take his seat. The guy just doesn’t look like a rockstar and everything about this performance feels wrong. Simon says it wasn’t a great performance. But Mel decides to give him a seat. Charlie Brown is out. Hayden starts crying and apologizes to his pal.
Andrea Faustini – I Didn’t Know My Own Strength (Whitney Houston)
Andrea kills it and makes Cheryl cry. He is getting a seat, no doubt about it. Hayden Leeman is out.
Paul Akister – These Arms Of Mine (Otis Redding)
The crowd starts screaming the moment he starts singing. Naturally, he is getting a seat. We say goodbye to Geoff Mull.
The overs are next.
Kisela Berice – Man In The Mirror (Michael Jackson)
Simon says he feels she is better performer than singer, but she gets a seat.
Scarlett Quinn – Ordinary World (Duran Duran)
She forgets the words before she even gets on stage and demands to have a look at the lyrics one last time. She is super nervous. And then she forgets the words on stage. The judges are all very frustrated. Simon sends her home.
Ben Haenow – Hotel California (The Eagles)
Solid vocal performance, the crowd is into it. I think this guy is getting a seat. Easy decision for Simon.
Raign – Wicked Game (Chris Isaak)
Ugh, this was terrible. Chery and Mel B didn’t like it, but Simon gives her a seat because he likes people that take risks.
Stevi Ritchie – I’ve Had The Time Of My Life (Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes)
First he starts singing and then dancing a performing. I guess he is playing the part of an average Joe. He then jumps off the stage and brings a young lady on stage to dance with. Simon says his head is saying no, but his heart wins. Stevie gets a seat.
Janet Grogan – Crazy In Love (Beyonce)
The judges love her, Janet gets a seat.
Lizzy Pattinson – Wicked Game (Chris Isaak)
She is definitely better than Raign, but a bit boring. She gets a seat.
Jay James – Run (Snow Patrol)
The first part sounds a bit shaky, but then it gets better and then he starts hitting the big notes. People in the audience come alive. I’m sure he is getting a seat. Indeed. But whose seat? Tune in tomorrow night!
‘You are crazy’: Simon Cowell criticises Mel B for getting rid of Charlie Brown as she picks six boys for Judges’ House
As the X Factor hopefuls are whittled down by their mentors at Wembley Arena, tension is even higher.
And as the audience boos each judge when they make unpopular choices, the panel aren’t holding back their criticism either.
On Saturday night, Mel was called crazy by Simon Cowell for getting rid of Charlie Brown as she selected her six Boys for Judges’ Houses.

‘You sang it better’: Mel B praises Robert Pattinson’s sister Lizzy over Raign… but Simon Cowell gives them both a seat during X Factor chair auditions
Wicked Games by Chris Isaak is a classic song, so it’s no surprise to see two X Factor hopefuls sing it during the Over 25s chair auditions.
But while controversial Raign’s version of the song split the judges’ opinions, Lizzy Pattinson secured universal praise.
‘You sang it better than Raign,’ Mel B told Robert Pattinson’s 31-year old sister before Simon Cowell gave her one of the six seats.
