XFactor 2012 results: Christopher Maloney overwhelmed after making final

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Christopher Maloney has admitted he's overwhelmed after making it through to the XFactor 2012 final.

Tonight saw Union J leave the show in the latest X Factor 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.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Christopher confessed: "It hasn't sunk in yet, I am in cloud nine, I am so overwhelmed."

There's now just one week before the final, where Chris will be singing alongside mentor Gary Barlow.

And Chris claims he's been putting in more hours than any other act.

He suggested: "The rehearsals finish at 7 in the evening and I go back to the hotel to rehearse until about 1AM. I am constantly listening to the music and other people's music to try and influence me and make my performance better."

While Chris admitted his nerves had "changed", he insisted he was still worried be performing.

The Liverpudlian singer explained: "The vocal coach has been great, Gary's been great, but I was still sick yesterday before going on to sing You Raise Me Up.

"I don't know about the final, I really don't know how I'll cope."
