PICTURES! X Factor 2013 live tour starts in Manchester

The X Factor 2013 live tour kicked off in Manchester this weekend, with seven of last year's finalists performing for a packed out arena.

Around 12,000 X Factor fans were in the City for the opening night, as Rylan Clark opened the show just hours after having left the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house as winner the night before.

Jahmene Douglas' epic voice filled the arena with tracks including Let It Be and Angels while Ella Henderson wowed with her original audition song Missed and an emotional cover of Cher's Believe.

Union J and District3 had the girls screaming, and got one lucky girl up on stage with them, while Christopher Maloney also had plenty of fans in the audience as he belted out Elton John hit I'm Still Standing.

But it was XFactor champ James Arthur who most were hoping to see, and he didn't disappoint with a headlining 20 minute set which concluded with his million selling winner's song Impossible.
