Both Sam and Nicholas will perform twice, reprising their favourite performance of the series and singing their potential winner's songs. Lines will then close, as announced by host Dermot O'Leary on the main show, before the winner is announced.

What are this year's X Factor winner's songs?
Nicholas McDonald's winner's song is a cover of the 2001 Grammy nominated hit Superman by Five For Fighting.

Who will win?
According to the bookies, The X Factor this year is Sam Bailey's to lose.

“Sam has been our odds on favourite for some time now and these final odds are the most one sided in recent memory,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The X-Factor crown is almost certainly Sam’s.”
