X Factor 2012 final: Louis Walsh backs Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur to win

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

Louis Walsh has claimed its a two horse race to win The X Factor 2012 final.

Last night saw Union J leave the show in the latest XFactor 2012 results, leaving the competition in fourth place.

There was no sing off or bottom two, with Union J leaving having received the fewest votes and resulting in Louis losing is final act.

With now just three acts remaining, Louis said: "It's a two horse for me, James or Jahmene.

He added: "I trust the public, I think it's wide open but I trust the public to pick the right talent.

Meanwhile Nicole said: "I'm just so happy for them, I'm just so proud, we were all so nervous backstage, we were praying. We are going to wow out next week on that stage.

"I just want to say thank you so much to all the humans who voted out there."

Chris' mentor Gary insisted it was wide open for any of the three remaining acts to win.

He said: "This is wide open and all three artists are in three different genres so it's going to be whoever's got the largest fanbase who's going to win."

The Take That star added: "Nerves are going to kick in, for anyone to go out at this point it's going to be devastating, we're down to the last three acts so they have to hold their nerves, be cool and sing their hearts out."
