Louis Walsh, Tulisa, Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow in X Factor judging panel line upThere’s simply too much excitement this weekend as our two top talent shows both go live. While Strictly got started yesterday, tonight’s the night for Dermot O’Leary to take to the stage for the first X Factor live show.

One hopeful sure to split opinion is Nicole’s choice, Rylan Clark, who has promised a ‘futuristic Egypt’ theme for his first live performance!

And don’t forget that the beginning of tonight’s show will see one of the judges’ wildcard win their place in the final. But will it be Christopher Maloney, Adam Burridge, Amy Mottram, or Times Red that gets a second chance. You’ll have to tune in to find out.

The X Factor is on ITV1 tonight at 8pm.
