Shelley Smith has revealed she's set to sing a Jennifer Hudson track in tonight's X Factor results.

Shelley became the first victim of this year's new flash vote twist last night, which saw a mini vote at the end of the performances.

The 35-year-old received the fewest votes in the 10 minute poll, putting her in the bottom two this evening.

Lines have since reopened and the act with the next fewest votes will be revealed tonight, joining Shelley in the sing-off.

The pair will perform again and the judges will decide who stays and who goes.

Shelley's mentor Sharon Osbourne insisted it could have been anyone in the bottom two this week, saying on the Xtra Factor: “Who can call it, we have all been sat here asking each other who we think is going to go. We can’t answer it you know, it’s down to the public and they have spoken.

“You can never call it, never and I always say to the contestants ‘nobody is ever safe here.’ You really have to work to stay in.”

And Sharon told Shelley to "stay focused" on her performance.

She added: “She [Shelley] just has to do what she does, which is sing. Sing her heart out and we don’t know who she is going to be singing against, so she’s just got to stay focused.”

The X Factor 2013 results air tonight at 8PM on ITV.
