Weekend music TV round-up: X Factor sound controversy

Boyband United Vibe and teenager Molly Scott have become the latest hopefuls to be eliminated from The X Factor.

But this week's Saturday show was marred by controversy after sound issues prompted bosses to cancel the public vote. The vote instead took place during last night's results show.

United Vibe, who were mentored by Robbie Williams, exited first after receiving the fewest votes from the public. Scott, who was part of Simon Cowell's girls' category, joining them following a sing-off with Acacia and Aaliyah. The judges voted 3-1 in favour of saving the duo.

Williams was replaced by Nile Rodgers as judge for last night's show as the former is on tour in South America. The Chic legend will also fill in for this coming weekend's live shows. 

Former X Factor winnr James Arthur performed new single Empty Space, while Jonas Blue, Liam Payne and Lennon Stella performed Polaroid.

Meanwhile, over on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing, musical guests were The Kingdom Choir, who performed an Aretha Franklin medley, and Jess Glynne, who performed her new single, Thursday.
