James Arthur has admitted he's looking forward to Motown week on the X Factor this Saturday night.
James found himself in the bottom two at the weekend in a shock result that saw Ella Henderson leave.
Speaking after the results show, James told the Xtra Factor: "I'm lost for words to be honest.
"It feels horrible to progress at the expense of Ella.
"I thought she was a potential winner of the competition, so I was not prepared for that.
"I thought I was a goner when I went up against her.
And James, who along with Ella was one of the favourites to win, gushed about the loss of the 16-year-old in the competition.
"Ella is the strongest 16-year-old I’ve ever met in my life," he said. "I just want to say to her that she has an extremely bright future and I love her to death."
This weekend will see James and the other five finalists take on two songs each as they cover both Motown hits and Abba's classics.
James said: "I’m going to have to come back and do better next week. It’s difficult after being in the bottom two.
"There are a lot of Motown songs that I want to sing, so I’m looking forward to it.
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.
