X Factor UK final: James Arthur promises "epic production" tonight

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

James Arthur will give some emotional performances with "epic production" on The X Factor 2012 final tonight.

This evening's penultimate live X Factor show will see the trio of finalists performing both a new song and a duet with their mentors to more than 10,000 people at Manchester Central arena.

The show will conclude with one of the tree being voted out in third place, leaving the remaining two acts to go on to fight it out head to head tomorrow night.

James teased: "I'm coming out swinging, there's going to be epic production on the songs there will be emotional performances tonight."

"But if I get through to Sunday it'll be some fun performances.

"There will be six outfit changes which is quite big, considering I don't usually change my outfit in a week!"

And James revealed he had given up trying to woo Caroline Flack, instead moving on to his mentor Nicole Scherzinger!

He said: "I think I've given up on Caroline and fallen in love with Nicole. Sorry, Lewis, she's got everything, she's perfect."
