X Factor Contestants Get A Surprise Visit From Rod Stewart In Rehearsals

The eleven X Factor finalists thought they were on their way to just another rehearsal, but were in for quite a surprise…Waiting for them in the rehearsal room was the rock legend himself, Rod Stewart.

Donovan from 4Sure said: “It was just fantatsic. We walked through the door and Rod was just standing there. We couldn’t believe it. He gave feedback on everyone’s songs. We weren’t quite sure what he’d make of us because our style couldn’t be more different from his. But he was really great.
He told us that he loved what we’d done with the song and that we should continue to put our own spin on it.”

4Sure will be singing “You’re in  My Heart” on Saturday’s live show at 17:45 - 19:45 with the results shown at 21:05 - 21:40

At 5.50pm-7.50pm on Saturday, we will see each of the final 12 acts face a studio audience and the public vote for the first time in a bid to win the title of X Factor 2006 winner and the lucrative prize of a £1million recording contract.

The following twelve acts will battle it out :

Leona Lewis - a 21 year old receptionist from London
Ashley McKenzie - A 20 year old student and part-time model
Nikitta Angus - a 17 year old from Glasgow
Ray Quinn - an 18 year old ex-Brookside actor from Liverpool

Robert Allen - a 27 year old hospital worker
Ben Mills - a 26 year old who runs a marquee rental company
Kerry McGregor - a 31 year old Scot with a young daughter

4Sure - All male group consisting of Donovan, Andrew, Kriss and Jermaine
MacDonald Brothers - Siblings from Glasgow, Brian and Craig McDonald
Unconventionals - a six-piece harmony group
Eton Road - A four boy group from Liverpool

This is where the show starts to get interesting, as the rivalry between judges Sharon, Louis and Simon heats up as they stand by their own acts. Who will be the first to go? As they always say, each act is only as good as their last performance, and nerves and tensions are bound to be running high amongst the contestants during their first live airing in front of millions. Results will be shown at 9.10pm-9.45pm
