After three weeks of chair-swapping drama, the Six Chair Challenge finally concludes this evening. All that's left is for Cheryl to finish choosing her groups and then for Simon to tackle the Overs category.
Throughout the competition Simon has been less than enthusiastic about mentoring the Overs, and according to what we've heard, he's still pretty grumpy this evening. So we're sure that all the chair-swapping's going to be as brutal as ever.
Join us from 7pm and we'll bring you all the action live as it happens, including performances from some of our favourites such as lovely Anton and Bupsi. Enjoy!
20:59Exciting Trailer Time! Both you and us thought Six Chair Challenge may never end, but the day has finally come. Next week Judges' Houses is back, and for the first time ever, the final decisions are made Live! Thanks for joining us this week - as always, »
Rage Against The Machine are sorry for inspiring Limp Bizkit. While Fred Durst's band have repeatedly praised the 'Killing in the Name' band for paving the way in the music industry, bassist Tim Commerford is horrified that the two groups have any association at all. He told Rolling Stone: ''I do apologise for Limp Bizkit. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bulls**t.'' Mistakenly believing Limp Bizkit have split, he added: ''''They're gone, though. That's the beautiful thing. There's only one left, and that's Rage, and as far as I'm concerned, we're the only one that matters.'' The snub will not please Durst, who has repeatedly spoken of his love for Ratm and insisted they inspired his own band. Limp Bizkit regularly plays 'Killing In The Name' during their concerts and at a 2014 gig in New York, he »
Still best known for the John Green adaptations The Fault In Our Stars and this year’s Paper Towns, Nat Wolff is looking to make a mark outside of Green’s work. He’s already attached to one of James Franco’s numerous directorial efforts and is now in the process of landing the lead in Adam Wingard’s take on horror manga Death Note. Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s work focuses on Japanese high school student Light Yagami, who comes across a handy notebook penned by the death god Ryuk, which allows its owner to kill anyone he pleases by writing their name in the book and picturing their face. Light decides to use his newfound power to rid the world of evil, and the series follows his progress, and that of the cops on his trail. Killing in the name of altruism is all very well, but »
