TOP 16 become TOP 14 tonight. Taylor Swift and Pharrell Williams perform.

Who might be in trouble: Stephanie Nala, Blonde Electra, Jake Quickenden, Overload Generation, Stevi Ritchie

The show starts with a cold open, followed by Peter Dickinson‘s long intro.

Peter introduces Dermot O’Leary and then the 4 judges. Lines are still open.

TOP 16 perform Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen”.

Time for a looooooooooooooooooong recap.

Watching that, I actually think this year’s line up is pretty good.

Over 2 million votes came in last night. For the first time ever the viewers can vote for free via the X Factor app (5 votes).

Pharrell Williams performs “Gust of Wind”. He has Asian dancers on stage and the background is full of autumn leaves. The song … is just okay. He tells Dermot that he liked Lauren’s rendition of “Happy”.

5 minute warning! We are going to a commercial break.

The lines are now closed. Dermot asks the judges who was the best last night.

And now, it’s time for Taylor Swift. She is performing “Shake It Off”. She wouldn’t get far as a contestant on the X Factor with her vocals. There is nothing interesting on stage to hear or see, I’m afraid.

Another commercial break.

Time for the results!

The judges and their acts come on stage for the results.

Fleur East
Ben Haenow
Lauren Platt
Paul Akister
Lola Saunders
Only The Young
Jack Walton
Chloe Jasmine
Jay James
Stereo Kicks
Andrea Faustini
Stevi Ritchie
Jake Quickenden

The 13th act safe to be revealed after the break. 4 acts remain on stage: Stephanie Nala, Blonde Electra, Overload Generation and Jake Quickenden.
We are back. And the 13th safe act is: Jake Quickenden!

Bottom 3:
Stephanie Nala
Blonde Electra
Overload Generation

Blonde Electra received the fewest votes and is out of the competition!

Overload Generation sing “For A Thousand Years” (Christina Perri). This is painfully bad.

Stephanie Nala sings “Have You Ever?” (Brandy). Sappy song, but she sounds way better than the boyband.

Judges vote:
Simon sends home Overload Generation, based on the performance.
Cheryl sends home Overload Generation.
Mel B sends home Stephanie Nala, because Overload Generation are her wildcard.
Louis sends home Stephanie Nala.


Overload Generation are leaving the competition! I can’t believe Stephanie pulled through this deadlock, but she deserved it! Simon must be happy knowing that One Direction’s copycat is gone. Louis Walsh is down to 2 acts and this was only week 1!

Next week, TOP 14 will sing the music of the 80’s. Jessie J and Maroon 5 perform. More judges, ex-judges and mentors from The Voice. Heh, too bad The Voice is unable to produce a successful contestant.

Double blow: Louis Walsh loses TWO acts as Blonde Electra and Overload Generation are sent home on The X Factor’s first elimination night
It appears that Louis Walsh’s dream of finally having a winning act on The X Factor may be slipping through his fingers once again.

The Irishman saw two of his acts – Blonde Electra and Overload Generation – leave the ITV show, after a tough first elimination night on Sunday.

Sister act Blonde Electra were the first act to learn that they were departing the show, as it was announced by host Dermot O’Leary that they’d received the least votes.
