X Factor 2011: Week 8 – Guilty Pleasures & Heroes

Tonight, the remaining X Factor contestants will take on two massive songs.

The theme for this week’s quarter-finals is Guilty Pleasures and Heroes. The final five acts will choose a song from their favourite artist and one of those cheesy tunes – you love but won’t admit to.. and of course there’s Dermot’s opening dance too..

The song choices are:

Amelia Lily: China In Hand by T’Pau and Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson

Janet Devlin: MMMBop by Hanson and Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Little Mix: Beautiful by Christina Aguilera and a mash-up of Baby by Justin Bieber/Where Did Our Love Go by The Supremes

Marcus Collins: Lately by Stevie Wonder and I’m Your Man by Wham

Misha Bryan: Killing Me Softly by The Fugees, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper

Last year’s Guilty Pleasures saw Wagner sing a mash-up of Spice Up Your Life & Livin’ la Vida Loca, while Katie Waissel performed the Jungle book classic, I Wan’na Be Like You..

Amelia Lily and Misha Bryan are joint favourites to leave the competition this weekend at 2/1.. Little Mix are now the favourites to win the show outright in two week’s time.

Olly Murs and Jessie J will perform on Sunday night’s results show. Plus the X Factor finalists perform the charity single Wishing on a Star

The X Factor continues on ITV1 at 8pm tonight.
