Two weeks ago, we said farewell to Blonde Electra and Overload Generation. Last weekend, Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmine bit the dust.

We're nearing November now, and remarkably we still have 12 acts left standing. Let's fix that, shall we?

Join Digital Spy tonight, as the remaining contestants belt out movie classics in a bid to impress the judges and, more importantly, the Great British public.

22:07Well, that's me done for tonight. Thanks for reading and commenting - hope you weren't sick of my moaning. See you around!

22:04Dermot confirms that OneRepublic and Ed Sheeran are performing live on the results show tomorrow.

22:03Not many standouts tonight sadly, but who's in danger? Things don't look good for Jake, and I think Paul isn't completely safe. Are people bored of Stevi yet?

Caroline Flack feels like she's in Dirty Dancing

19 hours ago | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Caroline Flack feels like she is starring in 'Dirty Dancing'. The former 'Xtra Factor' presenter is incredibly excited to be taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - on which she is partnered with professional dancer Pasha Kovalev - because she can't help but think of the classic movie, which starred Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze. She said: '''Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'. That's the only way I can explain it. ''And Pasha is Patrick Swayze - look at him. He's like, 'Step on the two' and I'm like, 'Eeek! It's 'Dirty Dancing'! Eeek!' '' Caroline admits she is ''in awe'' of her »

The X Factor: Week 3's Movie Night song choices revealed

24 October 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

And The X Factor title goes to...

Nope, we've not got that far yet. Still another couple of months to go - but Saturday night is Movie Night on ITV's primetime reality TV juggernaut.

So dust off your gladrags, order in the popcorn and stop trying to work out which member of Stereo Kicks is which for a moment - because tomorrow night's song choices are in. There's power ballads aplenty, so expect more key changes than a Westlife album.

Which young hopeful will be hoping to meet the challenge of his rivals, who wants you to 'Listen' to them and which soloist has the unenviable task of singing a track originally performed by four artists? Find out below...

Baby's First Birthday Cake Perfectly Captures How We All Feel About Cake

23 October 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We want all of the cake. All of it.

We have a lot of feelings about cake. But this sums it up in two GIFs:

We love all kinds of cake — wedding cake, graduation cake, whatever occasion at the office warrants a cake in the break room — but the best kind of cake is birthday cake. Your birthday cake. Which 1-year-old Bauer was #blessed to learn early in life.

Watch: 8-year-old boys nails ‘Dirty Dancing’ choreography!

“My son's first birthday was December 7, 2013,” mom Darcy Danson says. “He had never tasted cake. When we gave him his birthday cake, we had no idea that he would enjoy it so much that he would nosedive right into it.”

Bauer’s birthday may have been last year, but the video wasn’t uploaded until now — right in time to start the countdown to his second birthday. Because you Know Bauer is already ready for that cake.

Bald James Franco Poses with a Bloody Megan Fox

22 October 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

James Franco offers no explanation for this bizarre photo, but we've got some ideas.

James Franco offered no explanation for this bizarre Instagram photo he posted on Tuesday night of him and Megan Fox, but we've got some ideas.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress is seated on a bald and mustachioed Franco's lap, wearing a white, bloody gown that she has paired with a white boa. The outlandish actor apparently felt the best caption for such a creepy photo should read: "Megan Foxy is the best!"

Photos: Guess That Zombie!

Megan Foxy is the best!

A photo posted by James Franco (@jamesfrancotv) on Oct. 10, 2014 at 7:42 Pdt

Back in 2011, Fox, 28, and Franco, 36, teamed up for the environmental documentary Na Nai'a Legend of the Dolphins, but we're pretty sure this isn't a sequel to that doc. What seems more likely is that the two are shooting scenes for Franco's new 10-episode AOL series, Making a Scene »

There are some things you can just watch over and over again, like every sexy dance sequence in Dirty Dancing... or this adorable eight-year-old's re-creation of the film's memorable finale.

8-Year-Old Boy Channels Patrick Swayze to Perform Nearly Perfect Dirty Dancing Finale

14 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nobody puts baby in the corner! Charlie, 8, proved this point by recreating a spot-on performance of Dirty Dancing's final number (lift not included), the Today show reports. Mimicking the moves of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle, Charlie easily delivers every one of the character's signature hip swivels and box steps as he watches along with the movie. The only thing missing from Charlie's amazing Johnny impersonation is a dance partner, which the boy should have no trouble finding now. Charlie's mesmerizing routine went viral after his family posted the video to Facebook. This isn't Charlie's first time taking center stage. »
