Now, the 10 remaining acts perform Halloween-themed songs as they battle to get one step closer to that life-changing recording contract. This year has already provided plenty of drama: Gary walked off during the first results show after Carolynne Poole got the boot, and the following week Rylan Clark still wasn't in his good books. And the talent is arguably better than ever, with Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur creating a lot of buzz, and Union J attracting One Direction-style screams from female fans in the audience. But as host Dermot O'Leary and the judges remind viewers each week, nobody is safe, so the acts will all be facing pressure to give their best performances yet.

      The X Factor excitement is turned up a notch this weekend as the final 16 contestants took to the stage for the start of the live shows last night. They've been through auditions, Bootcamp and the Judges' Houses stages of the show and beat off competition from thousands of others. Now, the final 16 are preparing to perform live in front of The X Factor judges and an audience of millions to win The X Factor 2011 and scoop a £1m recording deal. Last night's theme is UK v US, with each act singing a big hit from either side of the pond. Tonight will also see the UK v the US as Matt Cardle and Cee Lo Green perform, before each judge sends home one act, leaving three acts they most believe can win through to next week's public vote.

But Louis Walsh - the only remaining original judge - will be hoping to show his rivals how it's done with the over-25s - Sami Brookes, Kitty Brucknell, Jonjo Kerr and Johnny Robinson. On this occasion, viewers do not have the chance to vote for their favourites - as the judges provide opinions and defend their own acts - before having to vote one of their own acts off the show.
