CLUB CLASSICS SEMI-FINAL WEEK
X Factor will turn down the lights and head for the floor this weekend as the Semi-Final shows take on a 'Club Classic' theme.
The theme will see the remaining five acts all perform one dancefloor classic as well as another song of their choice.
The second song must be a song the acts believe can get them into the grand final of the show.
Speaking to the official X Factor website, vocal coach Yvie Burnett said: "This is the most important song choice so far. We have got absolutely every type of act you want in this semi-final.
"Everyone is getting really stroppy, really grumpy, really tense and nobody can decide on their songs. This week is crucial."
What would you pick for the acts to do as Club Classics?
MATT AND MARY, AND ZAYN MIGHT NOT PERFORM ON SATURDAY!
Mary Byrne and Matt Cardle are reportedly in danger of missing the X Factor semi-final because of vocal problems.
In previous series acts such as Diana Vickers have been given byes after falling ill during the competition, but it has never happened at such a late stage in the TV talent show.
Cardle's illness is so bad that he was forced to miss out on a planned TalkTalk secret gig earlier this week, where the five remaining acts did a short Q&A with fans.
Byrne did perform at the London show but has apparently since lost her voice.
A source told the Daily Star: "Matt is putting a brave face on things but his voice is in bad shape and he could miss the semi-final. He's really low because he's desperate to be at his best for such a vital show. Mary and Matt have both been struggling with their throats for the past week.
"Matt was advised to rest his voice by doctors and so didn't perform. Mary did sing but complained of a bad throat afterwards. At the moment we're hoping they will be fit to appear but we just don't know. It will be a disaster if they have to pull out."
Meanwhile, One Direction may be without Zain Malik on tomorrow's show, because the singer has returned to Bradford due to a "family health matter".
CHER HAS 24 HOUR THERAPIST ON CALL.
X Factor's Cher Lloyd is reportedly being monitored by a 24-hour therapist.
The 17-year-old singer reportedly failed to attend the royal premiere of the new Chronicles of Narnia film after 'throwing a strop' and has also admitted that she was "disgusted" by boos from the audience.
"Cher is struggling again," a source told The Mirror. "She keeps threatening to quit the show, saying if it wasn't for her contract she'd be out.
"The therapist has her own room in the house and is on call 24/7. It's hoped that Cher can be calmed down in time for Saturday's live show."
The insider added: "She's had a series of strops and rants and has been a bit of a nightmare. The patience of some staff has finally run out."
An X Factor spokesman said: "The welfare team ensures that all of the contestants get any support they need."
