The X Factor 2016 judges have received their categories, find out which judge has which category below!
Bootcamp took place this week in London at Alexandra Place, before filming begins for the Six Chair Challenge this weekend. In Preparation for the Six Chair Challenge, the judges have been given their categories:
This year sees the return of the all star judging panel, with the traditional Louis Walsh, the fiery Sharon Osbourne, Shamazing Nicole Scherzinger and the boss, Simon Cowell.
The judge and category pairs are as follows:
Simon Cowell – Girls
Nicole Sherzinger – Boys
Sharon Osbourne – Overs
Louis Walsh – Groups
Yesterday, Simon was first to go through the gruelling Six Chair Challenge, picking the six talented girls he wanted to go through to the Judges Houses.
Nicole, Sharon and Louis will be choosing their six contestants over the next few days, both today and Monday.
In the Six Chair Challenge, the remaining acts in each category will perform one by one for all four judges who will offer their comments and critiques.
Then, the mentor for that category will decide whether or not to give the contestant a ‘seat’ in the next round.
Once all six seats are full, the mentors must then decide who to swap and replace in the seats if they want to take any further acts through.
Only those who are left sitting at the end will make it through to Judges Houses, where they will battle it out in order to earn a place in the live shows.
