Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Christopher Maloney wants to perform his own songs on The X Factor 2012, apparently.

We didn't really have Chris down as a song writer, but he claimed that he's been writing just as much as James Arthur.

He said this week: "The public chose me to be the 13th finalist and they've been with me through the competition supporting me, and I'm just so grateful.

"I've stayed true to myself and the public who have voted for me."

Chris revealed: "I do write my own stuff," adding, "I just want to make people happy."

He added: "When I have watched the X Factor over the years you can see through the finalists but I've bared my soul to the nation, that's all I've done. I've worn my heart on my sleeve."

Meanwhile speaking about his homecoming earlier this week, Chris said he was left in tears by the support.

Chris, who performed for more than 2,000 fans at the Liverpool Empire, said: "It was absolutely fantastic, the city of Liverpool came out and I'm so proud to be from the north west.

"They were brilliant. There was tears, it was emotional, I haven't been back home of months."
