X Factor 2012 song choices: What should the acts sing for Guilty Pleasures?

The X Factor 2012 Week 6 - Rylan Clark

The X Factor 2012 finalists will be taking on song choices with a Guilty Pleasures theme this weekend, but what should they be singing?

The six remaining acts will be covering some cheesy classics as they campaign for more votes to stay in the competition.

There's just three weeks to go until the big final in Manchester, with the finalists going all out next weekend with two songs each.

However first they need to avoid Sunday's latest elimination and Saturday's latest live performance show.

For song choices, we'd love to see Ella Henderson perhaps cover a classic pop track by someone like Britney Spears. The teenager is sure to put her own spin on whatever track mentor Tulisa gives her.

Speaking about her song choice, Ella said last night: "I can give you some little insider facts. I'm doing a song that absolutely everybody knows, but nobody's ever heard it sung this way. It's exciting."

We'd love to see Chris Maloney tackle Nothing's Going to Stop Us Now, continuing his line up of classic cheesy songs.

And as for Rylan, having already tackled the likes of the Spice Girls and Gangnam Style in his performances, perhaps a bit of YMCA is on the cards?

What songs would you give the remaining finalists? Share your views in the comments below!


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.
