Good evening Digital Spy forumerís and welcome to the Grande Finale of The X Factor 20. After ten weeks of competition, we have finally reached the finish line as tonight our remaining acts got to battle as they looked to be crowned champion. After sixteen eliminations, just four remain and tonight you and you only will decide which one of them takes gold. Our remaining acts will be tackling the themes ďParty AnthemĒ, ďCelebrity DuetĒ and a special surprise round which will be revealed later on. After all four acts have performed, the voting will open and you must vote four your favourites by ranking them for 4 (Best) to 1 (Worst). The voting will later freeze where the two acts with the most votes will progress to the next round, while third and fourth place will be revealed. The two remaining acts will then have a chance to showcase to you why they deserve to win, before the voting is opened one last time.

So, now itís time to get down to business. Theyíve worked incredibly hard to get their acts here putting in much time and effort to make sure they could get their acts to progress throughout this competition. Weíve had judges quitting, arguments on the panel and voting mess ups but we are finally here and so are our fantastic team. Alongside them, our four remaining acts have had upís and downs but it is now their time to go out and shine.

Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome our fantastic judges and their remaining acts

Soppyfan and The Boys

Adam Burridge
David Correy

Kuda_Kunaka and The Groups

MK1
Times Red

and

Spanner82

and

bboy1988

So as we can see Adam, David, MK1 and Times Red are our four remaining contestants meaning it is Soppy v Kuda, Boyís v Groupís. So, tonight Steve or Kuda will finally win their first ever X Factor forum game. Tonight is going to be a close battle.

Right, before we kick this final off, letís just remind ourselves of the acts who were previously eliminated.

Emblem 3, Union J and Jahmene Douglas who were eliminated in Week 1
Arin Ray and Tate Stevens who were eliminated in Week 2
Amy Mottram who was eliminated in Week 3
Melanie Masson who was eliminated in Week 4
Diamond White and Vino Alan who were eliminated in Week 5
Ella Henderson, Christopher Maloney and Jade Ellis who were eliminated in Week 6
James Arthur and CeCe Frey who were eliminated in Week 7
Fifth Harmony who were eliminated in Week 8
and Carolynne Poole who was eliminated in last weekís Semi Final

Judges are you here? And how are you all feeling? Is the final four you predicted?

Evening judges. Like Steve said, I think this will be an exciting final and all four acts are deserving. Being honest, this was not the final 4 I predicted but I believe it is the right four. I haven't received a reply from Spanner so I'm not sure if he'll be there. Soppy and Kuda, I wish you all the luck in the world.

Right, now itís time to get down to business. Kicking off tonightís Final, we head to Steve and the Boyís. This guy is the only act who hasnít been in a sing-off throughout the entire series. He has flown his entire family over from the US and is hoping that his performances will encourage you to vote for him. As one of the front runners within the competition, will the momentum stay with him tonight and propel him to the final? Weíll thatís up to you. With his take on a party anthem; itís David Correy

David

David well done on making it to the final buddy, you and your mentor have done a good job on making it this far. I am really sorry to be critical especially in the final but this really isnít the style of song that I feel works for you. Vocally I think you and Chris Brown have similar tones but I really felt a disconnect between you and the style of song. I am expecting a lot from you tonight as I think you are the only act to not be in the bottom 2 of the competition. I hope your next performances will be a lot better or you may be in trouble.

WOOHOO! Now THAT is how you open the Grand Final ladies and gentleman! David, people said that you have been one of the greatest improvers in the Series and look at you now, you are in the Final and I've always believed in you. This was an explosive start to the show, but I know that you have so much more energy for the later performances tonight, we can do this!

That was a lighthearted performance to start off with tonight. You seem to let go and have fun which i ike seeing from you.. On to the technical stuff, I felt Chris Brown's tone did not really suit yours as you are more rockier so I felt a little bit let down in that department. Everything else seemed to have been on point

Brilliant opening to the show from David but mixed comments from the judges. Steve absolutely loved it however Stephen and Kuda werenít sure If it was the right song choice for him. Was this two big of a risk to take? I donít know but David still has two more chances to convince you he deserves to be in the Top 2. Right, over to our second finalist of the evening now as we head to Kuda and the Groups. These guys are probably the underdogs of the competition as they have had a mixed time throughout the X Factor 20. Theyíve been at the top of the votes and been involved in two sing-offs but have still managed to book themselves a place in the final. Many didnít expect them to be here, but theyíve proved their critics wrong. Hoping to turn the heat up in here and create a wave of votes for themselves, itís MK1

Guys, it's been a rough ride but I think we can agree that no one has expected you to make it this far, but you are here in the Final. That was fun, upbeat and as always you get the crowd going and make us feel like it's a big party which is what this theme is about. A very good performance to start on what's gonna be a close Final, well done guys.

MK1

Guy during this game and before I took the impartial position in the panel I was probably your most vocal supporter. I want to start of by also congratulating you on making it this far into the competition. But something that I have to be completely honest and say is that I absolutely hate this song with a passion. I think vocally it worked well for you guys but for me something didnít sit right with it and I am not sure if it was the dance feel to the song as thatís not what I would expect from you or if it was the song itself because I hate it.

WOAH! Stephen, who is normally their biggest supporter was not feeling it tonight however Kuda and Soppy were very impressed. Another great performance from the Guys, and they still have two more to come. Could they be a surprise in the Top 2? Now itís time to head back to Steve and the Boys with our third finalist. This guy has been slowly creeping up on the other contestants throughout the competition. Having faced a sing-off and near elimination in Week 3, he has been the surprise package of the competition. Although never having been in the Top 2 of the votes, this guy has bagged himself a place in the final and a possible shot at the crown. Please welcome to the stage with a massive UK number one, itís Adam Burridge

Adam

Adam out of all the finalists your performance style and vocals are the most interesting to me. I love how you perform with the intensity but I really wasnít feeling it with this song. Adam I am not going to criticise the song choice because I am sure your mentor had a hard time choosing a party anthem for you as this theme is the complete opposite of what you should be doing. I wish you the best of luck for the remainder of the performances.

I really dont understand why your menor did not go for the original if he wanted this song, cause that would have suited you way more in my opinion. Despite it being a duet, and judging both vocalists collectively in that video, I think it was a pretty good performance. You would have really nailed it with the original

Oh Adam, are you one of the greatest darkhorses or what?! I will be honest, I wasn't expecting you to make it this far, but you are here because you have support from me and the fans. That was a fantastic, upbeat performance from you and I know that later tonight, you are gonna be even much better than this and I know that it is possible! You are making me a very proud mentor, Adam. Top-notch!

Mixed reviews for Adam there with Kuda not so impressed with the arrangement of the song. However, like Steve said Adam has improved so much throughout the competition and he has his fans as we can see in the thread. So, back to Kuda now and over to our fourth finalist of this evening. These guys have had a tough time throughout the competition with one former judge blasting them throughout the entire time they were in the competition but throughout the last few weeks they have built up a massive following while impressing the judges with their performances. However, will they be able to do enough tonight to prove to you that they deserve to win. Here with their take on an Enrique Iglesias hit, itís Times Red

Guys, in the Semi-Final, you had one of the best nights and I feel that you've come a long way to get to this point. It is the Final and I am expecting outstanding performances. However I feel a bit confused over this song choice. It was a risk which I commend you mentor for, it was different and it showed another side which impresses me, but I'm not sure if that was the right choice. I hope you'll come back stronger later.

Times Red

Guys congrats on making it to the final. You are an act that really intrigues me as you have your own unique niche and could potentially be amazing. I think the song choice could have worked for you but I wasnít convinced by the tempo of the this song. The whole performance seemed very rushed to me. As a whole all 4 finalists are level peggings with me as none of the performances have been stand out to me yet.

That was a great upbeat performance if you ask me. Look at the energy you brought to the stage tonight. Though it was uptempo, you didnt let the vocal standard drop, they were as good as always, you gave us power when you needed to, your harmonies were brilliant. I loved that performance so much

So judges, you have all been quite critical in your analysis tonight, but who do think has taken round one and what are you hoping to see from the acts in the next two rounds?

Like I said for me at the minute all the acts are currently sitting at level peggings and I couldnt call who will go though and who will go out.
