Gary Barlow has admitted to being disappointed in Tamera Foster after last nights X Factor 2013 performances.

Tamera was singing a cover of James Arthur's Impossible as part of the Best Of X Factor week, but forgot her lyrics for a second week in a row.

“It seems obvious [that she could be in danger]," Gary said on the Xtra Factor following the performance. "I think the other contestants at this point get their heads together, come on this stage and they’ve all done great performances tonight.”

He continued: “I felt very sorry for Tamera but I was also very disappointed in her because we have seen it two or three times now with her. There comes a point where there is great talent left in this competition and for me, I think she is in trouble and only fairly really.”

Nicole Scherzinger defended her act, saying: She is so young still, she is only sixteen. Everybody has their strengths and weaknesses and this is just a little mental challenges that she had.”

She added: “She is a star no matter what, she is going to make it. This is something she is going to have to work on and she will and we will come back stronger next week.”

Meanwhile, Gary picked out Luke Friend as his favourite act of the night, with the teenager bouncing back from the sing off last Sunday with a cover of One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.

“You know what as well, Luke was fantastic tonight," Gary told Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack and Matt Richardson. "At this point of the competition we should real see what lane all the artists are in. Everyone should really know what type of record they are going to make.

"He stole the show in that department tonight.”

The X Factor 2013 continues tonight from 8PM with a Best of X Factor results, with performances from JLS, One Direction, Jessie J and Mary J Blige.
