Vote: who performed best in week one of the X Factor live shows? The X Factor's live shows returned to UK screens on Saturday night, with judges Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger providing quality entertainment and drama as usual.


With Gary confirming that this year will be his last on the X Factor, the 12 hopefuls took to the stage to perform for their lives. After a flash vote at the end of the show, Overs' Shelley Smith was announced as the least popular act who will definitely be appearing in Sunday's bottom two sing-off.
