The live shows for The X Factor kicked off last night in spectacular style, showing off the huge set and high production value for the first time this year. It opened with a group performance from the series’ judges Guy Sebastian, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ronan Keating and Mel B, who each sang some of their most popular hits before coming together for the Spice Girls’ “Who Do You Think You Are.” While many say the concept was borrowed from The Voice, it was definitely a dynamic start to the series, and a good reminder of the judges’ music and performance styles. It was also impressive to see Mel B back on stage, in high heels, just weeks after giving birth to her third child! As for the show, some of the contestants were so popular that they became worldwide trending topics on Twitter, such as Reece Mastin, 3 Wishez and Audio Vixen. If you missed the judges singing together, or want to re-live it, watch!
