Friday October 31, 2014

X Factor finalists Lauren Platt and Lola Saunders got into the Halloween spirit when they attended a performance of the classic musical Wicked at London's Apollo Victoria Theatre on Thursday night.

The girls, who are the last standing two in Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's category, met leading ladies Jennifer DiNoia and Savannah Stevenson whereLauren remarked she would one day love to play the role of Elphaba.

This was not the only Halloween trick or treat for the X Factor contestants as 'Wicked' head judge Simon Cowell announced that there will be a shock double elimination this weekend.

Acclaimed as "one of the most popular West End musicals ever" by the London Evening Standard, Wicked has been seen by more than 6 million theatregoers in London and played over 3000 performances.

The musical, based on the international best-selling novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, is currently continuing its open-ended London run while a spectacular UK touring production is also now playing until July 2015.
