Their X Factor UK journey may have come to an end at the Judges’ Houses last night, but all is not lost for Slavko Kalezic and Berget Lewis. After all four categories reached their conclusions, host Dermott O’Leary revealed a wildcard twist.
Last year Saara Aalto was saved from Six Chair Challenge elimination when the judges selected her and three others as wildcards. This time the British public will have their say on who will join the final 12 at next weekend’s live shows.
There will be a total of four wildcard acts — one from each category. So the bad news is that only one of Berget or Slavko can reach the live shows. Along with fellow eliminated Over Talia Dean, they’ll face the public vote for the one remaining place in the live shows.
