All the gossip from backstage at The X Factor finale





Hello, hello! I’m Pips Taylor the Interactive Presenter on The X Factor. Each week I interview the finalists backstage and get all the gossip. This weekend is The X Factor final at Wembley and we are half way through the Live Final Weekend!

I have been here since Friday filming backstage videos, interviews – here is a little tour of the Wembley arena. This weekend I have the pleasure of hosting The X Factor After Party.

What a show it was last night! I was sitting next to all of the old X Factor contestants who were on their feet and singing along supporting their pals on the stage.


The show was amazing and Nicole and Sam Bailey blew the roof off the stadium! Gutted to see Luke go but his duet with Ellie Goulding was awesome.

Here are a few backstage snaps:


The show is enormous and this is just some of the equipment it takes to put on.


I ran into Jedward when they were rehearsing – how fun was their performance last night?


So our After Party starts after the ITV1 & ITV2 shows. Everyone came down and all the ex-finalists were dancing and watching at the front of the stage. The stage is awesome with a huge gold glitter X!


We had a special performance from Hannah Barrett and then we had a little chat on stage – she has been gigging loads and can’t wait for The X Factor tour!


After Hannah’s performance those cheeky Rough Copy Boys performed.

For yesterdays filming I wore a Shakuhachi dress, Pucci Necklace, Finchittida Finch earrings and Zara boots.


I bumped into the lovely Abi Alton.


As I was leaving I saw Nicky and had a cheeky picture by the ITV Christmas tree!


Enjoy the show tonight and I will be back with more backstage gossip tomorrow when we will have crowned out the X Factor 2013 winner!
