YouTube's app for the big screen is being updated today

  YouTube's app for the big screen is being updated today YouTube may have originated on the desktop (more than a decade ago!), but now mobile and the living room are two of its most important platforms. Google previously had similar categories hidden in the left-side menu bar, but the company thinks that moving them front and center will help users find content faster and keep them watching longer. The categories themselves have also been refined a bit, with some new additions and subtractions getting to the 14 total you'll find now. It's something YouTube has been working on ever since it started designing its own consistent interface across the big screen in 2013.

'X Factor' contestants discovered who their mentors are on Sunday's (18.09.16) show.

After a gruelling bootcamp, half of the acts were sent home while the others finally found out who will be in charge of their categories as the competition continues.

Simon Cowell revealed himself as mentor to the Girls, while Nicole Scherzinger takes charge of the Boys.

Sharon Osbourne has the Overs category and Louis Walsh was given his favourite section, the Groups.

"When you're working with whoever you are working with, work as a team, but also understand that they are your competition as well."

Girl group Skarl3t abandoned their fellow performers Kayleigh Marie Morgan and Tinuke to rehearse alone, claiming they had been "stuck with parts of the song we weren't familiar with".

While Skarl3t impressed, Simon called them "a nightmare to work with".

James Wilson also caused chaos when he disappeared before he was due on stage.
