Emily's pulled 'Toxic' back out of the rubbish bin to perform it on this Saturday's live show as her pick for the Louis Loves theme, dedicated to songs that judge Louis Walsh adores!

The 18-year-old initially picked 'Toxic' as her Express Yourself song for week one, but swapped it at the last minute in favour of The Chainsmokers' 'Closer'.

At the time, Emily told us about the switch: "They felt 'Toxic', which was the first choice, just wasn't really me because I'm young and current and fresh and that is kind of an old song so it didn't make sense for me to do that. I really love that song so I was a bit gutted. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I may sing it another week."
