Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 hopeful Christopher Maloney will dedicate his song this weekend to his friends, family and supporters.

The Liverpudlian singer revealed he wanted to give something back to his fans for keeping him in the competition up until this point.

This weekend the remaining four acts will once again be singing two songs a piece.

"This weekend's theme is a song for you and a song for the judges," Chris explained today. "And the song that I've picked is going to be dedicated to my family, friends and everyone that's supporting me and picked up the phone along the journey.

"It took me a long time to pick the song to so I hope everyone will enjoy it."

Speaking in his weekly video diary for the official ITV1 X Factor website, Chris also insisted that he wasn't confident about making the final, despite having not been in the bottom two so far.

He said: "Not being in the bottom two doesn't fill me with confidence, it's weird as I expect to every week to be in the bottom two with the negative comments I get."

Discussing the final, Chris said: "It's week nine, it's the semi final and I can't describe it. If I do get the final, I've had a few offers for duets, including Jade McDonald.

"I think she's fantastic and she's been a fantastic supporter throughout the competition, I'd love to duet with her."

The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the final four acts singing songs that they hope will get them into the final.

On Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe and there will be performances from Pink and Tulisa.
