Olatunji to know fate on X Factor in dreaded Six Chair Challenge

Olatunji Yearwood will know his fate on X Factor this weekend when he and the other successful acts from the audition rounds find out if they will make it to the dreaded Six Chair Challenge.

The Six Chair Challenge replaces the traditional Bootcamp audition stage. 

In this challenge, the contestants compete before a live audience and the judges. The hopefuls are split into four different categories and mentors are assigned to each group. 

The mentors will decide if each act deserve one of six coveted seats but they could be replaced with a subsequent performer.

For the 2018 edition, a new element has been added to the challenge called the Golden X where each judge will have the right to offer an act a 'safe seat', or the Golden X, which will guarantee them a place for Judges' Houses.

The Six Chair Challenge will be the last round before the live shows. 

Olatunji got four yeses from the judges in week one of the audition round.

He is one of two Caribbean artistes who the judges seem to love. 

The other is former Jamaica Digicel Rising Star winner Dalton Harris.

X Factor airs on Saturday and Sunday night on the UK's ITV1.
