XFactor 2012: James Arthur refuses to dance

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star James Arthur has revealed he's refusing to dance on the show, or do anything that wouldn't be "classy".

The performer is one of the favourites to win the show, and insisted he's wouldn't been seen trying to emulate pal Rylan Clark's dodgy performances.

James tells Heat magazine this week that he doesn't want to come across as a "try hard" on the ITV1 series.

"I wouldn't go as far as Rylan Clark, but I would sing on a raised platform or something," he said.

James explained: "I'll do something that would actually be done at a concert and it would be classy. It wouldn't be try hard. My limit would be probably singing within the crowd or something."

And James said he wouldn't been seen dancing on the show, claiming he simply can't... at all!

"I would dance if I could dance. but I genuinely can't dance. Even Dermot executes those dances better than me - but you gotta love a trier," James joked.


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
