This Weekend’s X Factor Theme? Love & Heartbreak

This week’s X Factor theme is likely to reduce even more starry eyed hopefuls to tears than usual this Saturday, as the contestants serenading audiences with songs in the theme of “Love and Heartbreakâ€?.

Janet Devlin should clean up.

There are no indications about who will be singing what yet but with the likes of Kitty and Jonny in the ranks, a subtle approach to heartbreak is unlikley.

Will Jonny squeak out a rendition of Meatloaf’s “I Would Do Anything For Love”? Can we expect Rhythmix to spit some lyrics while mashing up a bit of Bryan Adams’ smoozy lurve song?

Now is the time to place your bets.

According to a show source the song choices will allow the contestants to “show their vulnerable sideâ€? before the first public vote. But we’re pretty sure that Gary will be treating lady fans to a little bit more than a glimpse of Frankie Cocozza’s “vulnerableâ€? side.

Hairbrushes at the ready X Factor fans, a night of power ballads is on the horizon.
