X Factor judge Robbie Williams' category sees TWO name changes days before live shows start

The X Factor is in for quite a few changes in this year’s live shows, as it’s been confirmed that not one but two of the Groups have changed their names just a day before the next stage of the competition gets underway.

As well as confirming that the show will be getting rid of the radical set of changes that defined the 2017 series’ live shows for something a bit more familiar to long-term viewers, now it looks like judge Robbie Williams has been chopping and changing a few things too.

Case in point, the groups formerly known as A* and Vibe 5 – from Saturday night, they’ll be known as Acacia & Aaliyah and United Vibe instead.

Both Acacia & Aaliyah and United Vibe were groups that were put together by the judges in previous stages, but despite having only been performing together for a short time, both groups are ready and raring to show the nation what they can do.

“We are so excited, we literally cannot wait, we’ve done all the choreography now which is sick!” United Vibe said ahead of the live shows.

“Live TV is huge, we can’t wait for the all the dancing, the sound, the huge stage, it’s a huge production, it’s going to be sick and we can’t wait.”

The group also said that the reaction to them since Judges’ Houses has been “amazing”.

“We’ve had so much love, the response has just been amazing and we feel very lucky and grateful,” they added.

As for Acacia & Aaliyah, they’re already promising that they’re going to “bring it” to the live shows and enjoy every minute of the competition.

“We are so excited! All I’m going to say is that we’re going to bring it,” the girls said, before adding that they’re most looking forward to “dancing” on stage during the shows.

“Our stage presence is good, we just can’t wait for the huge production. We’re going to bring it like we do every performance,” they continued.

The X Factor returns on Saturday, October 20 at 8.35pm and Sunday, October 21 at 8pm on ITV.
