X Factor 2012: Oh no! Union J's Jaymi is feeling sick!

Union J (X Factor 2012)

With tonight's second X Factor 2012 live show just hours away, Union J singer Jaymi has been struck down with illness!

The boys struggled last Saturday night with their first live performance, singing Queen's Don't Stop Me Now.

Nicole said: “I know it was hard but the song choice wasn’t winning it, I don’t know if you guys were having a good time up there.”

Gary Barlow added: “I had to agree, Louis, you have destroyed their night, it was so dated. ”

With those comments still fresh in their minds, Union J have been putting in the extra effort for tonight's second live performance.

They tweeted yesterday morning: "Sound check Done and really looking forward to the performance tomorrow night woop woop JJx"

But poor Jaymi has been forced to get rest in bed after getting ill.

He tweeted the group's 241,000 followers late last night: "Sorry everyone outside [the hotel]- the boys are on their way out to you but I'm still not well 🙁 and in bed getting better for tommorow 🙂 jaymi xxx"

Josh later added: "I'm off to bed everyone....BIGBIG night tommorow!! Need to do a good performance as I don't wanna go home!! Night - joshy x"

Also hoping to impress this week are District3.

They said: "Huge work day today @TheXFactor #Xfactor. Really wanting to make you proud tomorrow. We love you. <3"[relatedposts]The X Factor 2012 continues tonight 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.Browse pictures of the X Factor 2012 finalists below...
