Weekend music TV round-up: X Factor finalists revealed

Grace Davies, Kevin Davy White and Rak-Su will battle it out for The X Factor 2017 crown in next weekend's final at London's Excel Centre.

Scottish siblings The Cutkelvins and Welsh singer Lloyd Macey exited last night's semi-final to follow Matt Linnen, who departed on Saturday, having received the fewest number of public votes.

The three finalists - Davies, mentored by Sharon Osbourne, White, by Nicole Scherzinger and Rak-Su, by Simon Cowell - will go head-to-head next Saturday, with the Top 2 to square off in the grand final next Sunday. 

James Arthur, who won the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012, performed his new track Naked on the Saturday show, while Ed Sheeran was the special guest on last night's broadcast, peforming his current Top 5 single Perfect. 

Elsewhere, Sounds Like Friday Night returned to BBC One on Friday after a week off for Children In Need. Craig David co-presented the show and performed two songs - Heartline and I Know You, the latter track with Bastille's Dan Smith. The Killers also appeared, performing The Man, alongside Anne-Marie, who did Heavy and Tom Grennan, who played Found What I've Been Looking For. It returns for the penultimate episode of the series this Friday, with Rita Ora, Royal Blood and guest host Paloma Faith.

Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing, meanwhile, featured Kelly Clarkson singing Meaning Of Life.
