On Saturday’s Live Show, Sam performed a version of ‘Oops,’ a track taken from Little Mix’s most recent album ‘Glory Days.’ The original track featured Charlie Puth. Following his performance, Sam received negative comments from several of the Judges, whereby they felt that his performances weren’t authentic enough.
Sam Black has had a whirlwind journey on the show. He made it to the Bootcamp stage of the show, before being told that he unfortunately wouldn’t be progressing in the competition. After one contestant from the Boys’ category had to pull out, Sam re-joined the competition at the Live Shows stage.
Irish duo Sean and Conor Price performed ‘Issues’ by Julia Michaels. Judge Nicole Scherzinger felt that the duo could be more original with their performances. Their performance was heavily praised by mentor Simon Cowell. Each week, they impressed with their performances, which allowed them to showcase their vocal abilities, along with their phenomenal rapping skills.
Matt Terry also performed his new single ‘The Thing About Love,’ which was released on Friday 17 November.
Rak-Su won the Public Vote, and will be competing to win the Prize Fight on Sunday’s Live Show against Sunday’s winner.
‘The X Factor’ continues on ITV on Sunday 19 November at 7.30 pm.
