The X Factor judges were stunned by 17-year-old Louisa Johnson, who overcame intense nerves with a winning rendition of the Jackson 5's 'Who's Lovin You?'.

The performer, who is from Essex, has been singing since she was a child and idolises former X Factor winner Leona Lewis.

3. When you're dancing but don't quite know whether to be happy about it or not

4. When you've seen something shocking, but you kinda like it

9 hours ago

The X Factor treated us to 13 acts tonight - and wow, what a bunch they were. You couldn't really accuse the talent of being samey-samey tonight, when you had everything from Techno Susie to 4th Power to (sniff, sob) Jon Goodey.

10 hours ago

The X Factor kicked off in true style tonight - great acts, funny judges and loads of brilliant moments. But some bits stood out more than others...

1. The return of Wagner

"It's Vagner!"

2. Grimmy and Cheryl scaring Simon and Rita

Cheeky.

3. Literally everything about Techno Susie

4. But especially this Rita Ora gif

5. And Simon's snark

"This is why our chairs don't spin."

Life-affirming.

8. Man & Woman's on-off romance. »

The X Factor's Olly Murs: 'My friend Jon knows he didn't do the best audition'

10 hours ago

The X Factor host Olly Murs has admitted that he was "devastated" when his friend Jon Goodey got turned down by the judges.

Murs, who encouraged Goodey to apply for the show, sang with the 27-year-old in a band called the Small Town Blaggers before he shot to fame.

But Goodey's renditions of 'Budapest' and 'Counting Stars' failed to impress the judges, as Rita Ora told him he was lacking "star quality".

Goodey later told a visibly upset Murs: "I know what they mean - I never know what to do to get going. That was you - you were the dancer."

Speaking at the press launch earlier this week, Murs revealed that he felt gutted when Goodey got four nos from the judges.

"Jon's a really good friend of mine," he said. "I've known him obviously for years. It was horrible, but the judges have got to do what they've got to do. »

The X Factor: 4th Power bring some stunning vocals over from the Philippines

11 hours ago

The Philippines Got Talent.

At least it has judging by a girl group made up of four sisters who were shown auditioning for The X Factor when the show returned for 2015 today.

Speaking to the judges before they sing, the girls revealed they'd flown into the UK especially to audition. And it was a trip worth making, judging by the video below:

With synchronised dance moves, all four showcase their vocals - hitting notes and rapping along to Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj's 'Bang Bang'.

Their audition gets all judges (apart from Mr Cowell) bopping and singing along, with the girls making it to the next round.

If they go further and get past Boot Camp, their mentor will be chosen a little differently this year.

Instead of producers selecting which category will go to which judge, viewers will be able to vote live via Twitter.

Prepare for romance, drama and tears in Downton Abbey series 6 promo

12 hours ago

If the new promo for Series 6 of Downton Abbey is anything to go by, we're in for an emotional farewell to the Granthams, Crawleys and their servants.

Filled with scenes such as butler Carson packing away his room, belongings cleared out of Downton and reflective conversations, surely there won't be a dry eye in the house (or should that be Abbey)?

The promo starts with Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) telling Carson (Jim Carter): "If I could stop history in its tracks maybe I would. But I can't Carson, for neither you nor I can hold back time."

A sure sign of times moving away from grand families keeping servants, emphasised by Carson removing his name label from his door (sob!) and packing a suitcase.

In other scenes, it appears there could be a surprise return of someone for Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), a romantic interlude between Carson and Mrs »

Celebrity Big Brother's Farrah Abraham calls James a "dipshit"

14 hours ago

Farrah Abraham isn't afraid of making enemies it seems, particularly amongst her British cousins in Celebrity Big Brother.

The reality TV star rowed with Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton when she suggested Farrah was a "sore loser" and shouldn't have been invited to the first night party.

Now Farrah has rowed with James Hill, accusing The Apprentice star of staring at her and calling him a "dipshit".

James was quick to tell her it upset him, which caused Farrah to lose her temper even more.

Austin Armacost then got involved in the row, asking Farrah, "Why do you have so much beef?", prompting her to storm out of the bedroom.

James followed her to calm her down but the pair started rowing again and Farrah once again called him a "dipshit" (Digital Spy's new favourite insult, we might add...).

The pair went their separate ways, with actor Daniel Baldwin asking »

15 hours ago

Steven Moffat has defended the BBC from its critics, saying that Doctor Who could not have been created by any other broadcaster.

According to Moffat, Doctor Who forms part of the BBC's "insane variety".

"It's fair to say that there's only one broadcaster in the whole world that would have come up with and transmitted as good an idea as Doctor Who," the writer said, according to The Guardian.

"I think a very, very small number of people think the BBC is a bad idea, and a huge number of people think it's a wonderful idea," he added.

Celebrity Big Brother: Janice Dickinson rows with Austin over preference for UK

15 hours ago

The Americans are already rowing amongst themselves on Celebrity Big Brother, regardless of them being pitted against the British housemates.

After her entry to the house last night, Janice Dickinson wasted no time in making her opinions known.

When Austin Armacost revealed he preferred some things about the UK, Janice took issue with it.

Austin then tried to justify his comments by saying he feels effectively exiled from America because his husband couldn't move to the country with him.

It's a change of tune from Austin, who was booed on his entry to the house after less-than-positive comments he made about the UK on the launch show.
