‘The X Factor’ – Week 1 Song Choices Revealed

After we have followed the contestants from their first auditions, saw their performances at the brutal Six Chair Challenge, watched them fight for a place in the Live Shows in the Judges’ Houses stage of the competition, it’s now time for the Live Shows to commence – we couldn’t be more excited.

The show recently announced that the theme for the first week of Live Shows is ‘This Is Me,’ a theme which will allow contestants to express their individuality and perform songs they feel will showcase their vocals and personality to a certain extent.

The sixteen contestants will be striving to impress the four Judges – Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Field-Williams and Robbie Williams.

What exactly will this year’s contestants be singing on the first week of Live Shows? Keep reading to find out!
