Here's a look at how well The X Factor 2016 finalists are doing on the charts this week.

This year the performances from the live shows haven't been released to iTunes but instead are available to stream on Spotify.

And the performances that have been getting streamed the most may be surprising.

Matt Terry - who is the favourite to win the series - tops the ranks in terms of number of streams.

But in a surprise second place is Honey G with her cover of California Love.

That's despite Simon Cowell claiming that 'novelty act' Honey G wouldn't sell records.

When one Xtra Factor viewer asked if she could actually be a chart hit, the mogul responded at the weekend "The answer is no.

"But that's why we do the show, because we kind of embrace this I suppose. That's how you build a following."

And a real following Honey G already seems to have. Behind her are the three girls - which is sure to please Simon - followed by Freddy Parker and 5 After Midnight.

The first act to be eliminated, Bratavio, rank bottom in streams since Saturday with 18,000.

However joining them in the bottom three are Relley C and Ryan Lawrie, who were both saved by the public, proving that doing well on The X Factor isn't just about the songs.

The X Factor 2016 continues live this Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV with Motown week.

* Streams correct as of October 12.
