The Boys and Groups take on judges’ houses on The X Factor 2017 tonight.
The live shows are now less than a week away as the last of the remaining 24 X Factor contestants as they jet off to Judges’ Houses in a bid to land a coveted place in the final stages.
Offering a glimpse into the jet set lifestyle that The X Factor winner could have, the four categories travel to glamorous destinations across the world and with just one more chance to impress their mentor, each act will be hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the live shows.
This evening the focus is on the Groups, in France with Simon Cowell and the Boys, in Istanbul with Louis Walsh.
With crucial decisions to be made, each judge has help at hand from guest judges who know all about what it takes to make it in the industry: Simon reunites with former X Factor judge and singer Cheryl and Louis is joined by Brit Award winner and Grammy nominated singer songwriter Mika.
The six in each category will be singing for their mentor and guest judges for one of three places in the live shows.
At the end of it all, the mentors will pick their finalists and reveal the happy/heartbreaking news to each act.
For now, here are the songs the contestants have chosen to sing….

The X Factor 2017 judges’ houses airs tonight at 7PM before the live shows begin next weekend.
