Judges’ Houses week is here! Eurovision’s Slavko returns once again tonight in his final push to get himself to the Live Shows stage of The X Factor UK. Has the Montenegrin star done enough?

From Auditions to Bootcamp right through to the Six-Chair Challenge, this weekend saw Slavko’s last chance at getting through to the Live Shows of this year’s X Factor UK series, splitting the public opinion on the 2017 Eurovision act.

Competing in the Overs category alongside 5 other hopefuls, category mentor Nicole Scherzinger flew the contestants over to the beautiful nation of South Africa for the Judges’ Houses stage of the competition.

Slavko brings a show to South Africa!

Slavko’s performances so far have seen plenty of energetic dance numbers, getting everybody to their feet; this week was no different!

For his Judges’ Houses performance, Slavko gave his all in his version of On the floor by Jennifer Lopez, bringing a smile to other contestants as well as mentor Scherzinger, who went on to judge each of the performances alongside British grime and hip hop artist, Stormzy.

Once all 6 category acts performed, it was down to Scherzinger and Stormy to decide which 3 acts should qualify to the Live Shows stage of the contest. It was a tough decision to make considering the wide range of performers in this group.

Following a deliberation, Scherzinger called Slavko to the room in order to break the news to the Montenegrin star.

End of the road for Slavko… or is it?

Sitting together with the former Pussycat Dolls singer, Slavko was given the unfortunate news that his journey in The X Factor UK has come to an end, failing to make the Live Shows stage of the competition.

The final 3 of the Overs category include Matt Linnen, Kevin Davy White and Tracyleanne Jefford.

Despite not qualifying, Slavko has certainly made a name for himself in this year’s X Factor competition, with things looking bright for the Montenegrin singer in the future. However with a potential wildcard in the mix, is it really the end of Slavko’s X Factor journey…?

Do you think Scherzinger made the right decision in the end?
