XFactor 2012: District3 back James Arthur to win

District3 (X Factor 2012)

Axed X Factor act District3 have backed James Arthur to win the show.

Ditrict3 became the latest singers to leave the show in Sunday's latest X Factor 2012 results, after singing off against rival band Union J.

The judges decided to send District3 home, with Louis Walsh refusing to vote between the two groups.

Speaking after their exit this week, District3 said: "Obviously it's gutting and it's a really horrible feeling but we've made some amazing friends, everyone backstage."

The trio confessed: "For the past three weeks we've felt we were going to be in the bottom two so we kind of expected it. Everyone who's still here now deserves to be here."

And chatting to Xtra Factor's Olly Murs and Caroline Flack at the weekend, the group revealed: "Before this show we've only done a few gigs in our lives, to go from that to performing in front of millions of people is amazing, so the experience has been incredible for us."

Finally, quizzed on who they were now backing to win, District3's Greg, Dan and Mickey all said the same: "James Arthur!"


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
