Episode Summary

Live Show 1

After weeks of auditions and deliberations, the competition truly begins as the 16 remaining acts take to the stage for the first live show. To recap: Gary Barlow has got the boys - Frankie Cocozza, Marcus Collins, Craig Colton and James Michael; Kelly Rowland mentors the girls - Misha Bryan, Janet Devlin, Sophie Habibis and Amelia Lily; and Tulisa Contostavlos is looking after the groups - 2 Shoes, Rhythmix, Nu Vibe and the Risk. 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. Indeed, four of the shower are being culled this weekend.
