How to watch X Factor UK from outside the UK?

You can watch X Factor live, online. ITV streams the show through the ITV Player. However, ITV blocks viewers from outside of the UK. To get around that, you need to use VPN connection. If Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is your preferred browser, install ZenMate or Hola extensions and set them to UK server. Then open the ITV Player and pick the right channel. The player will ask you for a ZIP code Find an active UK ZIP code HERE. Don’t let the browser send any information about your location. You can also try to find a working ITV stream on MyiPlayer.com, TVPC.com or FilmON.com.

Somebody will be leaving us tonight. Little Mix and Ellie Goulding perform.

Olly and Caroline start the show with a cold open. Two acts are leaving tonight!

It’s time to face the music!

The judges are here! Yeah, double elimination tonight. No surprise. With 13 acts and only 7 live shows, double eliminations will be pretty regular this season.

It’s time for the group performance. TOP 13 are singing One Direction’s latest single “Perfect”. It must be a dedication to Simon Cowell.

Next, a long recap of last night’s performances.

Now it’s time for the first guest performance – Little Mix are back on the X Factor and they are performing their latest single “Love Me Like You” and a bit of “Black Magic”. Their third album “Get Weird” will be released on Friday. The performance is prom themed, just like the music video for the song.

Olly gives the voters their 5 minute warning.

Fleur East’s debut single “Sax” is featured in the ASDA commercial.

Next, Ellie Goulding performs her current single “On My Mind”. Weak vocals. Ellie isn’t a strong live vocalist and she can’t dance either. The song isn’t nearly as good as “Love Me Like You Do”.

The results after the break!

We are back. The judges join their acts on stage.

Bottom 3:
Alien Uncovered
Kiera Weathers

The act with the fewest number of votes is Bupsi. Alie Uncovered and Kiera Weathers are in the sing off.

Alien Uncovered sing “The Pressure” by Sounds of Blackness.

Kiera Weathers sings “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M..

Cheryl sends home Kiera Weathers.
Rita sends home Alien Uncovered.
Nick sends home Alien Uncovered.
Simon sends home Alien Uncovered.

Alien Uncovered are eliminated! Kiera Weathers survived the sing off. I think it’s the right decision. I love Alien Uncovered, but they are too edgy for the X Factor voters. I knew they would struggle to get votes.
