X Factor 2012: James Arthur impresses with Take That cover (VIDEO)

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

James Arthur was one of the stand out performers on The X Factor 2012 tonight, as the Final 24 are chosen.

Speaking before going on stage in Liverpool, James said: "I never expected I would be this close to going to Judges Houses. I’m absolutely buzzing it feels amazing.

"I’m taking a risk today because I’m doing a mash up. I want to show the audiences and the judges what I can do with a song that one of the best song writers in the country has written. So I guess it all rests on today."

James performed A Million Love Songs and the crowd went wild

Gary Barlow told him: "You know what James, you made an amazing job of Tulisa’s Young in your audition, you’ve done an incredible job of A Million Love Songs. I think people are going to be writing to you requesting to be James Arthur-d because that was brilliant, well done"

As James left the stage, Nicole told the others: "I love him"

Tulisa said: "He’s got that Plan B vibe but he’s himself"

Backstage and James reacted: I can’t even put it into words, I can’t. That was the best moment of my life. By far, by far the best moment of my life
