X Factor wild cards: Adam Burridge gets One Direction's support!

One Direction tour

Adam Burridge has got the support of One Direction as this year's X Factor wild card.

Adam is currently competing with Chris Maloney, Amy Mottram and Times Red for a spot in the live shows this weekend.

Last night Adam performed a surprise gig in London, with fellow finalists Rylan Clark and James Arthur joining him.

One Direction's Louis Tomlinson was also there, and encouraging his huge fanbase to back Adam to make it through to the finals.

"Everyone go down to the Cornershop bar in Shoreditch to watch my boy Adam Burridge! Hurryy," Louis tweeted.

He added: "Sounding good in soundcheck! Everyone come down."

Speaking this week about missing out on the final 12, Adam insisted he wasn't happy with Nicole.

"She had such a tough decision," he told her. "The fact she's bought me back shows she has faith in me."

He added: "One Direction has such a big fan base, they're the biggest band in the world. It was unbelieveable [when he tweeted me] - I'm so thankful for his support."
