X-Factor Plans Elton Themed Show
Dermot O'Leary has confirmed that this week's X Factor will have an Elton John theme.
At the end of last night's results show, O'Leary revealed that the remaining nine contestants will be "locking horns" as they tackle tracks made famous by John.
The theme week is a surprise addition to the show following remarks made by the veteran popstar in recent weeks, which included him criticising the X Factor format. The 'Candle In The Wind' singer described TV talent shows as "boring" and "brain crippling" and he questioned the long-term career prospects of the contestants.
Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh retaliated to John's remarks during a live show, claiming that this year's acts were proof that the show produced real talent.
JLS, Take That and Westlife will perform on Sunday's results show.
