X Factor 2011: Motown themed semi final

The theme for this week’s X Factor semi-final is… Motown..

The four remaining acts will each perform a motown classic and a song of their own choice that they believe will see them through to next week’s final at Wembley Arena.

The song choices are:

Amelia Lily Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and I’m With You.

Little Mix You Keep Me Hanging On and If I Were a Boy.

Marcus Collins Can You Feel It and My Girl.

Misha Bryan Dancing In The Street and Perfect.

There is NO bottom two this week, so the act with the fewest votes on Sunday evening will leave the competition straight away.

Misha Bryan is the clear favourite for the chop this week, while Little Mix are the favorites to win the show outright.

Coldplay, One Direction, Leona Lewis, JLS and Michael Buble will appear on The X Factor final next weekend.

For the first time in its eight year history, The X Factor final will been staged at Wembley with an audience of around 10,000 on both Saturday and Sunday night.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin said: “We’re all big X Factor fans so we’re very excited to play live on the show.”

Judge Gary Barlow added: “This is the biggest final The X Factor has ever done. It’s going to be an amazing night.”

The X Factor semi-final is on at 8PM Saturday and Sunday on ITV1.
