X Factor 2014 contestants: Andrea Faustini is early TellyMix favourite

Andrea Faustini (X Factor 2014 finalists)

Andrea Faustini has been voted as the most popular X Factor 2014 finalist by TellyMix readers.

They may not have performed in the finals yet, but thousands voted in our first popularity poll of the series over the past week ahead of this evening's first live show.

In the Girls category, Cheryl Cole chose Lauren Platt, Chloe Jasmine and Steph Nala, while for the Overs, Simon Cowell went with Ben Haenow, Fleur East and Jay James.

For the Boys, Mel B picked Jake Quickenden, Paul Akister and Andrea Faustini and finally, in the Groups category, Louis selected Blonde Electra (formerly Blonde Electric), Only The Young and the new Boy band.

The four wild card acts - to be confirmed tonight - weren't involved in our first weekly popularity poll which was topped by Andrea by some margin, with almost a third of the vote.

Ben Haenow was second while Lauren Platt completed the top three.

Also seeing early support are Paul Akister, the new boy band and Jake Quickenden.

But at the other end and Only The Young and Fleur East are at risk of going out first, as well as duo Blonde Electra who ranked bottom in our vote.

With the bookies and ahead of the first live show tonight it's the same story: Andrea is the current 2/1 favourite while Blonde Electra are offered at 4/1 to be kicked out.
