Dermot O'Leary hosts the third week of the singing contest's live shows, with the remaining acts keen to impress the judges as well as the viewers who will be casting votes for their favourite - with tomorrow night's results show revealing which acts have proved a hit and who will be leaving the contest this week. This year, Simon Cowell is in charge of the Girls, Louis Tomlinson has the Boys, Ayda Williams has the Overs, and Robbie Williams puts his Take That background to good use in coaching the Groups.
Each X Factor judge is in charge of a different section of singers on the show. The judges do not know what section of the competition they will be in charge of until the audition process has finished. Each judge then has to pick four acts to take forward to the live section of the show. Each week the two acts with the lowest amount of public votes have to sing again in a final showdown after which the judges decide who should be eliminated. Once there are only five acts left remaining it becomes left to the public to decide who should go.
