X Factor 2012: Simon Cowell loves Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur!

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

X Factor boss Simon Cowell is loving Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur on this year's show.

According to Louis Walsh, Simon has been keeping up with the series and already has his favourites.

Speaking on Xtra Factor, Louis said: "Simon Cowell's in America, but I know he's watched the first live show.

"He said he loved Ella, he couldn't believe Jahmene after I told him how good he was, and James Arthur, they were the three."

None of Louis' acts mentioned, we notice!

But the Irish music mogul insisted to Xtra Factor hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs: "He knows Union J are a threat to One Direction so he wasn't going to say much about them!"

Simon is the latest celeb support for Ella, who is the favourite to win the show.

The teenager has already received messages of encouragement from stars such as Cher and Adele after her performances on the X Factor UK this year.

After her cover of You Got The Love tonight, Gary told her: "You are the Adele of the competition."
