Dermot O'Leary hosts the fifth week of live shows. The remaining acts will be keen to impress judges Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson and Ayda Williams - as well as the viewing public - and escape elimination in tomorrow night's results show. Ayda's husband and Groups mentor Robbie Williams is due to return to the judging panel next week, having missed several recent shows due to touring commitments in South America, so tonight will see a guest stepping into the former Take That star's shoes once again.
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.
