X Factor results: TellyMix readers want Christopher Maloney out

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

TellyMix readers are still hoping it'll be Christopher Maloney who leaves The X Factor tonight.

And for the sake of the show, we reckon the producers probably are too.

Last night saw a change of tactic from the judges as they complemented Christopher's latest performance, although the negative comments quickly returned after he took on a Michael Buble track.

The Liverpudlian singer is bottom of our latest popularity poll after last night's semi-final performances, well behind Union J.

Nicole's boys James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas continue to lead by some margin, although we've seen previously anything can happen in the results.

With no bottom two on this evening's show it'll be the public alone who decide which act stays and which act goes.

But it's Union J are edging closer to the X Factor exit door with the bookies, with William Hill cutting their price for the boot, from 10/11 to 8/11 in the last 24 hours. Should this prediction prove correct then Christopher Maloney, James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas are set to battle it out in next weekend’s final.

Jahmene and James are the 11/8 co favourites to walk away with the recording contract but dark horse and wild card winner Christopher Maloney is 9/2 to win the show.

“Union J have had a good run and they will almost certainly get a contract whether they win the X Factor or not. It is going to very close whomever makes it to the final!,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

The X Factor 2012 live shows tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the semi-final results show.

There will be performances from Pink and Tulisa as well as the final elimination of the series.

There's no sing off on this evening's results, meaning act with the lowest votes will automatically get the axe.
