X Factor fans are shocked by the Matt Terry and Christian Burrows sing-off


Simon Cowell's girls might just harbour the winner of this year's X Factor, but the real entertainment from this week's Six Chair Challenge came in the form of Nicole Scherzinger's boys.

It was the most dramatic round yet, with a huge shake-up towards the end of the show involving Christian Burrows and Matt Terry, but first...

Mike Hough kicked off the auditions for his category, and despite all six chairs being available, he still had to put in a second song before winning one.

However, he did a whole lot better than Will Rush, who appalled judges with his self-penned track that was mainly a series of vowels.

The unexpected star was James Hughes, who thrilled the crowd with his version of Tina Turner classic Proud Mary, complete with a very energetic dance.

Matt Terry disappointed a little with his audition, but the viewers didn't care - they were a little distracted by something.

Freddy Parker split opinion when he was swapped with Conor McGinty to get a seat - after being asked to perform his first audition again because it was better than tonight's.

There were more big shocks to come with the seat swaps - Nate Simpson gave one of the best auditions, but had to take away Mike's seat, and Christian Burrows had to fight it out against his pal Matt.

But in the most dramatic Six Chair Challenge twist yet, after the sing-off Nicole decided to keep both of them, and booted Italian contestant Luca Valenti.
