XFactor 2012: Union J REALLY want to be in the semi-finals

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Union J have been getting pretty desperate today, as they fight to stay in the competition.

The boys have been in the bottom two twice before and are one of the tips to be in danger tonight.

Very few acts have survived a third time in the sing off, so if the boys can't get the votes from the public it could all be over for them.

Spamming Twitter all day,the boys wrote: "Nerves have already started kicking in...don't want to leave tonight.. crossing my fingers and toes. Please please keep voting much love JJx

"Thankyou to EVERYONE who is #VoteAndSaveUnionJ we are touching distance from the semi finals! We wanna b there so bad! Keep it up! Josh + G"

They added: "Please support and keep our dreams a live...we don't want be so close to the final and for this amazing journey to end.... much love JJxx "

In an interview with The Sun this morning, the group said they felt they could still win the show, despite being in the bottom two in the past.

Jaymi said: “The aim of this game is to win it and that’s it and that’s what we want to do. I don’t think there’s anything stopping us from getting to the final because James and Ella were in the bottom two and we weren’t.

“So to be above them – and yes, people might have thought they were safe – but we’re doing something right. We want to fight for this. And based on how much we want it and how hard we work, I don’t see why we can’t get to the final.”
