The X Factor 2012 live shows continue on ITV1 tonight and it's shaping up to be another dramatic show.

This weekend is "love and heartbreak" week, and the contestants will be performing some emotional tracks for viewer votes.

[tag]Rylan Clark[/tag], who claimed he'd be focusing on the singing this weekend, teased on twitter today: "Tonight's SPOILERS: balloons and Barlow x"

[tag]District3[/tag] were busy in rehearsals, tweeting their fan: "Another run through over... now back to more rehearsals. <3"Also putting in a lot of effort this week after their disappointing live debut last Saturday night are [tag]Union J[/tag], who told their 250,000 followers: "Just about to run through this weeks performance again! Can't wait! George X"Meanwhile [tag]Ella Henderson[/tag] revealed yesterday that she was planning an early night ahead of today's second performance show.The teenager, who is the current odds on favourite to win, tweeted: "Thank u everyone for the good luck memos! I'm so tired early night for me! Need all the energy I can get 4 the big day! X #XFactorCountdown"And [tag]Lucy Spraggan[/tag] stayed up late to rubbish some rumours, tweeting: "I haven't quit the X factor, just to quash that rumour! #xfactor"Looking ahead to tomorrow night's first elimination show, controversial X Factor contestant Rylan Clark (3/1) shares favouritism with District 3 (3/1) to be booted out this weekend, and whoever is the chosen one it's odds-on at 8/15 that the decision doesn't go to deadlock for the second week running.Ella Henderson's odds have been cut again and she's now quoted at 5/6 to walk away as this year's winner, and the 16 year old has also been slashed to 3/1 (from 12/1) to land the elusive Christmas number one.> X Factor 2012 spoilers: Love & heartbreak songlist!

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Although Rylan's clearly this year's novelty act the odds suggest he's got to go. The nation was infuriated with Louis Walsh taking the decision to deadlock and we can't see X Factor bosses wanting another backlash from fans."

She added: "Ella's the first act in X Factor history to be an odds-on shot before the second live show has even aired. Louis's integrity as a judge has come under fire this week and the odds suggest it won't be long before he's eliminated from the show either."

The Xtra Factor follows straight after the main show with all the backstage gossip, including just what Kye Sones has been forced to do to get away from snoring room mate Chris Maloney.

"Kye was caught out as the lift accidentally went to Ground Floor, he emerged from the lift in his pants and Duvet in the middle of 5* hotel reception, surprising hotel guests and staff," a source said. "He quickly covered himself up and rushed back upstairs."


The X Factor 2012 continues on Saturday night on ITV1 at 8:20PM.

This weekend will see the remaining contestants singing tracks with a love and heartbreak theme before the public vote once again, and one more act is eliminated on Sunday night's second results show.

Sunday's show will also feature performances from US country star Taylor Swift and former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson.
