The first live show of the season kicked off with a bang. Or a “Jump,” rather, with the other young homie from Brooklyn Brian “Astro” Bradley starting a stadium-wide party with the ultimate 90s party anthem (performed with an X Factor twist). With the Girls and Boys groups, mentored by Simon and LA Reid, respectively, it was clear who the weakest links were (sorry, Philip Lomax, Tiah Tolliver and Simone Battle). But we’re sure we’ll see them on some stage, some day.

In the meantime, (re)watch all the good, bad and meh from this week’s X Factor live show below!
