XFactor 2012: Ella Henderson is most listened to finalist

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Ella Henderson has been named as the most listened to finalist, just a few days after she was eliminated.

Stats released by music social network Last.fm have put the 16-year-old above all of the remaining acts with over 22,000 plays from more than 500 listeners.

The teenager was axed at the weekend ahead of James Arthur in the bottom two, and it's James who also happens to be in second place in the last.fm chart.

James had had less than half the amount of listens from Ella - 10,000 - but from a similar audience of 500 listeners.

The show's last remaining group Union J managed to attract quite a few listens as well, with 13,000 plays from 200 listeners.

Favourite to win Jahmene Douglas is only fourth in the list, with less than 100 listeners.

It's perhaps little surprise to see both Christopher and Rylan at the bottom, seeming to show that their votes certainly aren't coming from fans who want to really listen to the pair's tracks.

Lucy Spraggan remains the most listened to act of the whole series, indicating she may well have won were it not for her illness.

Lucy, who left the show earlier this month, amassed over 23,355 listens from 1,802 listeners even before she was forced out of the show.


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna, Tulisa and Bruno Mars.
