X Factor 2012: District3 admit: 'Melanie Masson beat us in sing off'

District3 (X Factor 2012)

X Factor stars District3 have admitted that Melanie Masson "smashed" them in the sing off tonight.

This evening's latest X Factor 2012 results saw Melanie and District3 in the bottom two.

In the sing off, District3 performed Bryan Adams hit (Everything I Do) I Do It for You while Melanie performed Duffy’s Stay With Me Baby.

However despite the huge vocals from Melanie, it all proved pointless, with the judges once again sending the vote to deadlock.

It saw Melanie leave the show, and Gary lose a second act in as many weeks.

Speaking on Xtra Factor after the results show, the boys confessed that Melanie had out sung them in the save me performances.

"It's so scary, we don't take anything for granted, when you get to that stage you realise what you're missing," the group told Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.

They continued: "We are so grateful and so blessed. Melanie is one of the most incredible vocalists, she smashed us on it, so we're very blessed to be saved."


And District3 confessed that they didn't feel their performance last night was up to scratch.

"We felt in ourselves during the performance last night it wasn't our best. But we're going to try and keep positive," they said.

The X Factor 2012 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.
