This evening took place the fourth live show of X Factor Malta, the show that will determine the country’s Eurovision 2020 representative. A total of 6 acts took the stage and gave their best in order to remain in the talent show and come closer to win the ticket to Rotterdam.  

The Story so Far

The X-factor kicked off with dozens of auditions which led to the 120 acts that went on to the bootcamp phase.  After the two round judgement during the bootcamp round, the qualifiers divided in 4 groups (The Girlsthe Boysthe Groups and the Overs) had to go through the Chair Challenge round, where only six acts from each group were to qualify the next stage of Judges’ houses after performing on stage. Further on we saw initially the 3 Boys and  3 Girls that qualified from  Judges’ Houses to the Live shows followed by the 3 Groups and 3 Overs that made it through too.  The six acts of each group had to perform before their mentor and his guest , while he had to choose which three will follow him to the live shows phase.

The  Live Shows’ contestants

Thus a total of 12 acts reached the live show phase. In the past three weeks the first live show  , the second live show and the third live show took place in which two eliminations happened in each show leaving it with 6 contestants. The acts from the four teams competing in the live shows are:

THE RESULTS 

Once the live performances were completed, the contestant receiving the less votes went home directly while the next two contestants with the lowest votes had a sing off and the judges were to determine who they were sending home. In case of a deadlock in the judge’s voting the outcome is determined by the public voting.

The public vote eliminated directly  Yazmin & James  (Groups team) who received the less votes among all contestants and left the show.
