Ella Henderson has said she's looking forward to performing again on The X Factor 2012 final.
This weekend will see the final three competing to win the show, but will also see all of the live finalists returning to the stage.
All of the finalists will perform a Christmas song together during this weekend's ultimate live show.
Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Ella said: "It has been great rehearsing for the performance at the final and so much fun being back with all the contestants again and going out into the big city and all the events.
"I have built very strong friendships there."
Despite giving most viewers a shock with her elimination, a positive Ella admitted she didn't think she'd even make it to the live shows in the first place.
"When I auditioned, I never thought for second I would get to the live shows," she told the newspaper. "I have got exactly what I needed from the show. Without X Factor, eight weeks ago no one knew I existed. A world of good has come from being on the show.
"I have been blown away by everyone's support. They have been great. I just hope everyone who was behind me continues to support me. I have always wanted a career in music and this is my chance to do that."
The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend with the live final in Manchester.
Chris Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur will be battling it out to be crowned winner, while there will be performances from One Direction, Kelly Clarkson, Rita Ora, Kylie Minogue, Rhianna and Emeli Sande.
