The fifth live show of “X Factor UK” set to air on Saturday, Nov. 28, will feature a “jukebox” night. The top five acts will be displaying their vocal prowess over songs that fans chose for them. 

“X Factor UK” fans took to Twitter earlier this week to choose the songs that the remaining contestants will perform on Saturday. According to ITV, each of the five “X Factor UK” contenders had a three song list in which fans were asked to send out a Twitter message with a hashtag of the song they wanted their favourite acts to perform.

The “X Factor UK” contenders’ song list ranged from classics, such as John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy” to hit tunes like Labrinth’s “Jealous.” The final voting results, which was released by ITV on Tuesday, Nov. 24, will have the top five singing contemporary and well-loved ballads. 

Fans chose Justin Bieber's “Love Yourself” for Louisa Johnson, while the singing duo Reggie 'N' Bollie will be taking the stage with Silento's “Watch Me” (Whip/Nae Nae). Lauren Murray is set to perform “Firestone,” a song by Kygo which featured Conrad Sewell. For the four girl group 4th Impact, fans wanted them to sing “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson 5. As for Che Chesterman, he’ll be giving his own spin to Adele’s hit song “Hello.”

Apart from the jukebox songs chosen by Twitter fans, the top five “X Factor UK” contenders will also be performing second song. This time, it will be a tune chosen by “X Factor UK” judges.

Meanwhile, “X Factor UK” showrunner and judge Simon Cowell is the first to judge to lose all his acts this season.  Cowell’s Anton Stephan’s was voted out of the competition after a singing showdown with Che Chesterman during the live decider show held Sunday, Nov. 28, Telegraph reports.

Apart from Stephan, Mason Noise was also booted out of “X Factor UK” after a flash vote elimination. After his departure from the reality singing competition, reports surfaced of Noise being in a “drugged” state during his final live show performance. However, he denied the report and explained that he was feeling under weather then and only took "two Ibuprofen" prior the show.

“X Factor UK” airs every Saturday and Sunday in the UK on ITV.
