Melanie Masson (X Factor 2012)

Melanie Masson and Christopher Maloney continue to pull it out of the bag on The X Factor tonight.

There's just one performance between them and judges' houses, and Melanie is up first.

She tells the judges: This is the biggest opportunity I have ever had in my life and probably and probably my last chance to really.

"Everything rides on this, I want to sing like it’s the last song I will ever sing in my life. I just want to do my best."

After singing, the judges are impressed, with Nicole saying: "Good job Melanie."

As Melanie leaves the stage, Louis Walsh tells the other judges: "I think she can sing better songs, but I think its all there. I think the potential with Melanie is all there."

Next up is Chris Maloney, who says: "This is the last opportunity that I’ve got to turn my nerves into something positive

"I’m going to sing for my life. I can’t let my nerves get the better of me. Hopefully this is my time."

After performing, Tulisa quips: "That’s what you call stepping up"

Gary adds: "What a voice"

Off stage and an overwhelmed Chris reacts: "I loved it- I’m making a show of myself aren’t I"

The X Factor airs at 7:10PM tonight on ITV1.
