'X Factor' Movies Week: Live Blog

Dermot O'Leary is brushing up on his latest shoulder shuffle dance routine, Gary Barlow's ready to dish out some more insults and Kitty Brucknell's knocking down the back door at Fountain Studios trying to get back on stage. It's Saturday night and it's X Factor live show time again.

With a movies theme week, only six acts left in the competition and Louis Walsh left without any acts to go rogue and even more wild than normal, it promises to be the best show of the series so far.

Only the cream of the competition are still standing, and Digital Spy will be picking out its favourites and voicing our own candid opinions on all tonight's performances live throughout the evening.

21.28 So that's 'Movie Week' done with, and if I was Craig Colton or Janet Devlin, I'd be a little bit worried. But of course, it's all up to you. Who do you think is worth a repeat viewing? Leave your comments below and join Digital Spy here tomorrow for some more Rebecca Ferguson goodness and a performance from the equally shy and retiring Rihanna. Night!

21.23 Marcus has gone all gospel for Jackie Wilson's 'Your Love Keeps Lifting Me' and he's clearly enjoying the heck out of it. Nothing can get him down, not even apparently mixing a red garment in with his white wash. Yeah, he's looking like a safe bet for next week.

21.18 Aw, welcome back to The X Factor, Rebecca Ferguson. Ain't she adorable? If anyone can help cheer Marcus up after his identity crisis, it's her. Nice hat by the way.

21.16 Hang on, Marcus Collins doing Ghostbusters? No, surely not. He's not going Jedward is he?

21.12 Sparks, smoke and sexy tuxedos. We were promised something special from Tulisa and, yeah, we've pretty much got it. Everyone loves their rendition of 'Don't Let Go' by En Vogue, with Kelly saying that they could be "the best girl group to come out of the UK". Well, I don't know about that that, but Little Mix are looking dangerously capable of winning this whole darn show. Who saw that coming?

21.07 Here comes Little Mix, singing something from a film so obscure that I've already forgotten the name of it. Anyway, they've had a good week, getting to meet Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson (both of whom are apparently fans) and The Saturdays. Apparently Frankie, Una and co would be happy to have some competition, but we wonder if they'll say the same if Little Mix get a number one before them?

21.04 Tulisa and Louis are both calling for Manchester to pick up the one phone that the city apparently shares to ensure that Misha B escapes the bottom two this week. Gary, however, continues to endear himself to viewers by saying that he "completely disagree[s]" with EVERYONE who didn't call to save her. Yes, even you. Gary hates you.

21.01 It's former bookies' favourite turned obvious next evictee Misha B. Having said that, her performance of Whitney Houston's 'I Have Nothing' is smooth and heartfelt, and the tears she and Rowland shed over their parent issues are certainly going to help her pick up the votes.

20.58 Time for a shameless, not at all pointless cameo from David Walliams and Russell Tovey. The Little Britain star reveals that he's a fan of Johnny Robinson. Nobody is shocked.

20.52 Tulisa claims that she's never heard this song. How can an X Factor judge have never heard Aretha Franklin? Madness. But anyway, everyone else is happy and Louis thinks she can be the next great female recording artist in the UK, though he does say that to pretty much everyone. He also berates Kelly for her poor decision to get rid of Amelia Lily in week one, conveniently forgetting that he almost chose to bring Goldie Cheung into the Top 16.

20.48 So it's Aretha Franklin's 'Think' for Amelia tonight. Nice to see her channelling that whole bubblegum rock thing she brought out for 'Billie Jean' in the first week. She's certainly given The X Factor a much-needed kick up the bum.

20.45 Here's The X Factor's equivalent of Rocky Balboa, Amelia Lily. The comeback queen absolutely knocked everybody out last week, so fingers crossed it wasn't just a fluke.

20.40 Tulisa's glad to see Janet "back in [her] comfort zone" and Gary calls it a "great improvement" from her "below average" performances of late. Kelly's chatting nonsense again ("Me, me? I'm Janet Devlin. Boo Boo"), but luckily she knows what she's talking about when it comes to song choices. The Devlinator's back!

20.36 Oh it's that 'Kiss Me' song, you know the one. Proper Heart FM fodder. Gotta say, I think Janet's finally struck the balance between dark and restrained and fun and kooky after failing to nail either in the last few weeks.

20.33 Apparently Janet Devlin's singing a song from How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days. No, I don't have a clue either. Did that movie even have music?

20.27 Louis and Tulisa kick off about the "predictable" song choice and, of course, Gary accuses them of being "lazy" in their remarks. Start as you mean to go on, eh, guys? Kelly's "constructive criticism" amounts to no more than "I just love you" and for some reason the audience are getting all fired up over an argument they've heard every darn week. Have they not been watching?

20.24 It's Craig Colton and he's got 'A Licence To Kill'. Well, I've got a fishing licence but I don't go bragging about it, mate, do I? He looks very sharp in his tuxedo though, and it's a predictably strong performance.

20.22 The judges step out to the Star Wars theme tune, so of course I'm now imaging Tulisa Contostavlos as Princess Leia, Gary Barlow as Darth Vader and Louis Walsh as an Ewok. It's amazing fun in my head.

20.19 Oh, man. These Dermot dances are fast turning into the highlight of the series. Every boy wants to grow up to be James Bond, but we're pretty sure 007 never danced like a drunken uncle at a wedding reception.

20.17 So here's the usual montage of the judges' sniping, mixed in with with some Twilight red carpet action. Tulisa also promises to show us "a whole different side" to Little Mix. Sounds promising.

20.15 Stacey Solomon there giving this year's lot a glimpse of what life after X Factor entails - serenading frozen gateaux for Iceland.

20.12 Good evening, X Factor lovers and loathers. Are we ready for Movie Week? Louis Walsh is out of the game, so fingers crossed there's no cheese-tastic 'My Heart Will Go On's or 'Take My Breath Away's tonight. This theme could have potential.
