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.
