and the new twists etc are all a bit of a mess- so listen very carefully grin

I will be out (out) so to cheer myself up, I am starting the thread a bit early.

And the new format is a bit confusing. grin
Simon has definitely washed his hands of it all- so the Great British Public will be responsible for all the votes, no judges votes at all.
Someone will leave on Saturday, and Sunday as well (I think). There will be no deadlock.

And the top two acts get to sing again to compete to win great prizes grin (I think Simon has been watching Crackerjack (crackerjack)).

The categories are split over the nights - I think.

Told you it was confusing.

X Factor 2017 song choices - Week 1
The CutKelvins
What About Us - Pink

Sean and Conor Price
Strong - London Grammar

Mamactia - Original Song

Grace Davies
Too Young - Original song

Holly Tandy
Hollow - Tori Kelly

Rai-Elle Williams
Doo Woop (That Thing) Lost Ones / No - Lauryn Hill / Meghan Trainor

Spencer Sutherland
Who You Are - Jessie J

Sam Black
Faith - Stevie Wonder ft Ariana Grande

Lloyd Macey
City Of Stars - La La Land

X Factor Overs

Kevin Davy White
Stay - Rihanna / Mikky Ekko

Matt Linnen
Scars To Your Beautiful - Alessia Cara

TracyLeanne Jefford
Written In The Water - Gin Wigmore

The wildcards haven't officially been announced, so don't know what they are singing. And I'm sad about the lack of Hallowe'en songs.

Some of the song choices are very odd- and I think the ones who sing original songs are at real disadvantage with the GBP.

Anyway. Off to watch dd1 play football in the rain. Will check in later, before I go off to my party.

(of course there is every possibility I've got all of it wrong, of course grin)

Thanks for your sterling work, just place marking for tonight!

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 18:12:35

As always, you have done a fab job with the thread Raahh smile
I am here tonight, I've got wine, that is needed grin

Apparently Simon might not be in tonight's show, because he fainted, So we might not even see the groups tonight.

Annabelle4 Sat 28-Oct-17 18:44:16

Place marking. 8.20 is very late resists opening the wine already

Roussette Sat 28-Oct-17 18:45:15

Well done Raahh smile

Simon definitely resting on the sofa with a damp flannel on his forehead so it's all been swapped round apparently. I'm around tonight but not tomorrow so will post rubbish aided with wine

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 18:47:43

Annabelle It is taking every bit of strength, and will power for me not to open the wine grin

Rousette I won't be here tomorrow either.

Thanks for the rundown. I must admit, I read an article about the new format this week and none of it made any sense. Only six weeks of live finals is the worst change - that's my favourite bit.

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Sat 28-Oct-17 18:58:42

Marking my spot! Hope the wifi holds up as I'm relegated to watching on the tablet!

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:00:00

Hope you have a fab time at the party Raahh

I am hmm at there being no Halloween theme, It's X factor tradition.

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Sat 28-Oct-17 19:08:07

I assumed it would be Halloween themed too! That's my favourite one!

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:10:22

And mine Chandler

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:35:32

Clocks go back at 2:00am smile I love this time of year!

But I am getting impatient, the time is dragging, there's still 45 mins left to go.

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Sat 28-Oct-17 19:41:45

I know! I have the tablet set up already!

NoisyBrain Sat 28-Oct-17 19:47:39

I am easily confused so tonight's show could be more of a nightmare than usual grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:48:03

I have caved and poured a wine So sipping it slowly grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:48:38

Noisy It is very confusing grin

nancy75 Sat 28-Oct-17 19:50:39

Evening all, just marking my place. I am full of cold ( thanks Dd) so might flake out before the end, I don’t even have walnut whips to keep me goingsad

TheFairyCaravan Sat 28-Oct-17 19:55:02

Evening everyone. Marking my place, too. I reckon I'll fall asleep half way through like I have the last two weekends 😂

dillite Sat 28-Oct-17 19:56:11

Good evening everyone! Are you all excited about tonight's show?

I see that they are going to be voting them off in two's. Like a Noah's ark or something. That explains the short run of the live shows and why were were tortured for months with the never-ending auditions.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 20:08:08

I am watching Strictly atm, They have a fab Halloween theme going on grin Seeing as X factor lets us down this year!

SomedayMyPrinceWillCome Sat 28-Oct-17 20:15:37

Why is the live show so much later in the year this year? In previous years I'm sure we've had a couple of live shows before the Halloween special

TheFairyCaravan Sat 28-Oct-17 20:21:20

There's 16 acts and only 6 weeks of live shows so they're going to be getting rid of at least 2 a week.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 20:22:30

Someday I know it has changed, there did used to be a show or 2 before the Halloween special.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 28-Oct-17 20:24:56

They are trying to make it fresh and new, I don't think it's working grin
