X Factor: Celebrity said goodbye to another two acts tonight (Saturday, November 16) following Martin Bashir and No Love Lost’s departure last week. Head judge Simon Cowell dropped the bombshell at the start of the ITV show that the safe seats were no more, leaving every act at risk of being voted off. Here’s how the show unfolded and who left.
Tonight’s episode was kicked off with a bang courtesy of Max and Harvey.
The pair, who are mentored by Simon Cowell, sang High Hopes by Panic! at the Disco.
All three judges praised the duo, with Nicole saying: “Your energy week after week is crazy – the sky is the limit for you two.”
Following Max and Harvey was an act from Louis Walsh’s Unders – Kevin McHale.
X Factor Celebrity: Who left the ITV show tonight?
The former Glee star sang I Feel Love, a song made famous by 70s singer Donna Summer.
He received a standing ovation from all three judges with Louis asking: “What just happened?!”
All three then described Kevin’s performance as his “best” of the series.
Third to take to the stage was international girl band V5, who narrowly avoided elimination last week (November 9).
V5 had the crowd roaring with their rendition of Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.
The girls received a standing ovation from the judges and crowd alike, with Nicole commenting: “Those girls got me feeling bang, bang!”
Louis also heaped on the praise, telling V5 they “deserve to be global posters.”
After V5 came footballer-turned-actor-turned-X Factor hopeful, Vinnie Jones.
Donning a Union Jack jacket, Vinnie took on a mash-up of rock classics I Fought the Law and Should I Stay or Should I Go, both by The Clash.
The highly-energetic performance was praised by all three judges, with Simon saying: “ I love the fact you embrace the bonkers.”
Vinnie was followed by former The Only Way is Essex and Celebrity Big Brother star, Megan McKenna.
Megan proved why she’s one of the frontrunners to win the contest with a performance of one of her own original songs.
