Hope you don't mind me starting this, Liam!

The Six Chair Challenge started filming today (just a day after the first stage of boot camp results according to Simon! ohmy.gif) and will continue with 2 sessions tomorrow and one on Monday.

(spoiler tagging the rest in case anyone clicks onto this accidentally)

The first session today which I attended was the girls. Simon is the mentor for the girls, and took the following through:

- a girl named Caitlyn who sang Andra Day's Rise Up, she was incredible and I'd expect a big boost for the song when it aired!
- Gifty, who auditioned last year, she sang Gnarls Barkley's Crazy and blew the roof off
- Emily Middlemass, who got to judges' houses two years ago, she sang a stripped back version of Girls Just Want To Have Fun and was really pretty great, got an excellent crowd reaction
- a girl who sang Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do, pretty good but seems like judges' houses bin material
- a girl who sang an Eva Cassidy track, pleasant but nothing more, see above
- a girl who sang a stripped back version of Sigma's Changing, rather good indeed!

It's a pretty strong category actually! Caitlyn, Gifty and Emily were my favourites but none are bad. A couple of good acts missed out too, although there was one DREADFUL girl who sang Meghan Trainor's Me Too :') then MNEK/Zara's Never Forget You when she asked to sing a better song lol. Other songs sang included Leona's version of Run, and Stop Crying Your Heart Out, plus some others that have escaped me.

Not sure on who's mentoring the other categories as it wasn't mentioned but we'll find out by the end of tomorrow via Twitter hopefully!


Dermot was there of course as well as Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson who filmed some links for The Xtra Factor, seemed like there were a couple of other lads I didn't recognise filming stuff on stage too? Maybe some YouTubers filming a VT for Xtra Factor? No idea really laugh.gif

Ooh didn't realise it was already 6 chair challenge, feels earlier this year than it was last year!

Joseph what songs were performed that you saw? (as in like good songs or songs likely to get a big boost, not every single song! and I'm not reading your above spoilers as don't want to know about the acts just yet!) heart.gif

It's about 2 months earlier than last year! I think it was only late last year because it aired later due to the football interrupting XF's schedule laugh.gif

Songs performed that I remember:

Andra Day - Rise Up
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do
Eva Cassidy - can't remember the name
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (twice laugh.gif)
Leona Lewis - Run (this specific version if it)
Meghan Trainor - Me Too
MNEK & Zara Larsson - Never Forget You
Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out
Sigma feat. Paloma Faith - Changing

EDIT: Also remembered that Almost Is Never Enough by Ariana Grande/Nathan Sykes was performed! As well as Amazing Grace.

ADORE Andra Day - Rise Up (literally just listened to it)! Really hope that will boost the song. Such a beautiful song! I can see it getting a huge boost depending on whether the public take to that contestant more than the other girls. YAY for an inspired choice though and for getting me to actually YT a song. Really pleased about Simon having the girls too!

I'm so pleased Emily is back, she was one of my favourites the first time she tried for this!

I'm off to the evening session tomorrow/later today so will be able to give you a few more details about what happens there.

So I was at the evening session yesterday which was Nicole and the Boys, we were running around 3-4 hours behind schedule so finished at 12.30am, and the remaining 4 boys were carried over to today! :')

When the session ended there were only 5 in chairs, Nicole was being very ruthless! She made a couple of mistakes for me (mainly a 16 year old who sang a very obscure rock song called 'Cuddly Toy' and also the guy that sang 'Lush Life' who had a quirky tone but then sang an original song too which sealed his fate in a bad way) but I definitely didn't see a winner. Can't remember all the song choices but the ones that excited me (and will therefore be most exciting to you I guess) were:

Zara Larsson - Lush Life
Calum Scott - Dancing On My Own
Johnny Cash/Leona Lewis - Hurt (he specified which version but I didn't hear what he said)
Nicole Scherzinger - Run

When the guy who sung Run said he was doing so, Nicole commented "Wow, I didn't know anyone knew that one"! heehee.gif For me it was the standout performance, and the crowd gave one of their biggest reactions to it as well - the arena was very quiet during the performance so I thought the "unknown" song was going to make it not go down very well but there was an eruption of applause at the end. I can't see the guy going through to the live shows as he didn't quite have that something, but he was the strongest one for me and was one of the 5 on a chair at the end of the session. Simon also made a joke about Lewis Hamilton at this point with the subject of 'Run' kink.gif

Nicole had an obsession with getting 80% of the boys to sing 30 seconds of another song a capella which only ended up working in the favour of one or two! Don't know if other judges have been doing this too.

So Caitlyn Vanbeck - considered to be the Louisa Johnson of this year according to Digital Spy Forums - is performing Kelly's Piece By Piece tonight (presumably the Idol version). Very intrigued to see it and also to see if it can have an iTunes impact!

I read somewhere that Louis had both Fleur East and Alesha Dixon with him at Judges Houses ? Although that could be wrong.

Ryan was Matt Terry the guy who sang Run? You'll find him straight away on Youtube (I'm a newbie so can't post links until 20 posts).
Thanks.

It wasn't Matt, I believe it was Niall Sexton - the Irish guy who sang Sara Bareilles' Gravity last weekend. I think they mentioned that he sung Gravity when talking to him at the 6 chair and I remember thinking that its nice that he's been singing some inspired choices in that and Run!

Thanks Ryan. It’s interesting that you say you can’t see him going through to the lives as I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. To my knowledge the 3 going through are Matt Terry, Freddy Parker and Ryan Lawrie (who was a wildcard). I’ve been more impressed by the girls this year.
Reason for edit: Too big a spoiler to leave unmarked!
