The first of the X Factor live shows kicked off last night and there was plenty of excitement. 

One contestant was sent home and one was announced as topping in the voting poll. 

These are some of the changes that have been brought in this year. 

Spencer Sutherland received the lowest votes from the acts who performed last night and was sent home. 

Another act will be sent home from either the groups category or the overs who will perform in tonight's show. 

Another element that is brand new this year is that Dermot O'Leary revealed which act came top of the phone vote. Grace Davies won that accolade and will go head to head with whoever comes out on top tonight to win a trip to New York to see Pink.
