Slavko still holding on to his X Factor UK chair for tonight

Slavko has managed to get a seat in tonight’s Six Chair Challenge at The X Factor UK. Will the Eurovision 2017 entrant for Montenegro manage to hold on to his chair by the time tomorrow’s show is over?

Slavko is just one step away from the X Factor live shows as he sang his heart out to win a seat in the dreaded Six Chair Challenge. Tonight, he sang They Tell Me I Am A Bad Boy by David Guetta.

His performance started with the Montenegrin addressing all the judges one by one before making special eye contact with Nicole Scherzinger. It all went fairly smoothly, Slavko in his characteristic diva style throughout, his braid staying firmly on his head this time. Former ‘pussycat doll’ Nicole Scherzinger has the difficult choice of whittling down her category to just six.

Slavko had looked a bit worried when a previous contestant was booed by the crowd. He needed not to have worried though. After some very positive feedback from Louis Walsh, Nicole gave Slavko one of the remaining chairs.

Former Dutch national finalist Berget Lewis also managed to get a seat in Nicole’s team. During her performance, Slavko looked quite tense, probably due to appreciating her vocal ability.

Two chairs were swapped over the evening, though Slavko managed to survive both changes made by Nicole. It remains to be seen whether the Montenegrin artist will manage to hold on to it during tomorrow’s show when the rest of Nicole’s candidates, including 2010 Cyprus entrant Jon Lilygreen, will perform. Stay tuned for what happens tomorrow night!

In the next stage of the competition we will see Slavko and the rest of the ‘overs’ jetting off to an exotic location. Six contestants will go but only three will progress to the live shows.
