The 'X Factor' will have a double elimination this weekend, whittling the seven remaining contestants down to just five
The 'X Factor' will lose another two contestants this weekend.
The ITV show has announced that its remaining seven contestants will be whittled down to just five in a double elimination.
The act with the least public votes will leave tonight (22.11.14) with a sing-off on Sunday (23.11.14), where another act will leave.
Simon Cowell is the only judge guaranteed to have at least one act remaining, following this weekend's double cut.
The 55-year-old media mogul still has three acts in the competition - Ben Haenow, Fleur East and Stevi Ritchie - whilst both Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini each have just one act remaining, Andrea Faustini and Lauren Platt respectively.
Louis Walsh has two groups left in the competition - eight-piece boy band, Stereo Kicks, and Only The Young.
The remaining seven contestants will sing Whitney Houston or Elton John tracks in a bid to secure their place in next week's show.
This is the show's second double elimination, following on from the Halloween-themed Fright Night earlier this month, which saw Jack Walton and Lola Saunders leave the competition.
Meanwhile, Stevi - who survived the sing-off last Sunday (16.11.14) against Jay James - thinks it's his time to leave the talent competition.
He recently said: "Whether it's Saturday or Sunday, I'll be one of the ones that goes this weekend."
