X Factor spoilers: James Arthur teases Guilty Pleasures song choice

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

James Arthur has hinted at what song he'll be singing on The X Factor this weekend.

This weekend will see the final six acts performing their favourite guilty pleasure tracks to win votes and make through to the next round.

The 23-year-old previously revealed he'd be singing a love song, and today gave away more teasers.

He said: "I'm going to do a song that's very well known. Lauryn Hill put a twist on it, and mine will be similar"

Given that we reckon it's sure to be something like Close To You by the Carpenters!

James continued: "I would love to sing one of my sown songs on the show. I've got plans to keep flipping songs, and keep choosing songs that people won't expect and making them my own hopefully."

James was speaking at a photo shoot for the eventual winner's single, which all of the remaining acts have now recorded.

"I'm not amazing at photoshoots, I just do the same moody look every time and look like I hate my life, and that seems to work," he said.


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.
