The X Factor wildcard 2017 acts have reportedly been revealed.
The four acts given a second chance in the competition have seemingly been leaked ahead of the official results on Saturday night.
At the end of judges’ houses on Sunday the final 12 finalists were revealed. But viewers had the opportunity to give another opportunity to acts who had been sent home, voting them through to the live shows this weekend.
There are a total of FOUR wild card acts on The X Factor 2017 – one in each category – who will join the 12 finalists chosen by the judges.
According to The Sun newspaper, Alisah Bonaobra is the Wild Card for the Girls category while Talia Dean is the Overs wild card.
Leon Mallett won the Boys wildcard vote while Jack & Joel are the Groups wild card for The X Factor 2017.
A source told the newspaper: “They’re all beyond excited and are working tirelessly to prove viewers got it right and that they are worthy of a spot.”
The X Factor 2017 wild card results will only be officially confirmed at the start of Saturday’s live show.
The total of 16 acts through to the competition’s final stage is the joint biggest line up to date.
Those already confirmed are Simon’s Groups Rak-Su, The CutKelvins and Sean and Conor Price, Sharon’s Girls Grace Davies, Rai-Elle Williams and Holly Tandy, Louis’ Boys Lloyd Macey, Spencer Sutherland and Sam Black and Nicole’s Overs Kevin Davy White, Matt Linnen and Tracy Leanne Jefford.
The wildcards will be revealed on Saturday before performing live alongside the rest of the contestants.
It’s understood that this year the performances will be split over Saturday and Sunday night shows with eliminations both nights.
The X Factor will be live on Saturday at 8:20PM and return Sunday at 7PM with the first weekend of live singing.
