X Factor 2012: Emeli Sande wants James Arthur duet

Emeli Sandé

Emeli Sande has backed James Arthur to win on The X Factor, saying she'd love to sing with him.

The Scottish singer performed on Sunday night's latest results show, singing alongside Labrinth.

And after seeing James sing and meeting him backstage on the show, it seems that Emeli is his new biggest fan.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper this week, she gushed: "I really like James Arthur.

"I haven't watched too much but I definitely saw his performance at the beginning. He just blew me away."

Discussing the 25-year-old performer, who wowed the judges on Saturday with his cover of Sexy And I Know It, Emeli continued: "I met him at the weekend and I'd love to get in the studio with him. I think he'd be great. He's brilliant."

But despite watching and performing on the series, Emeli insisted she wouldn't have entered the show when trying to make it.

She added: "Not for me. I think I'd try any other route than doing it. I couldn't face going on that stage every week, it's nerve-wracking.' "

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night with a spooky Halloween themed episode as the remaining ten contestants perform live once again.

The latest results show follows on Sunday when one more act will be given the boot.
