X Factor charts! Emily Middlemas storms to Number One!


Here's a look at how well The X Factor 2016 contestants are doing on the charts after the Halloween special.

While the X Factor live performances aren't being uploaded to iTunes as in past series, they are available to stream online via Spotify.

And that means we can see exactly how well each act is doing on the charts.

None of them are bothering for Number 1, or even the Top 40, but some are doing a LOT better than others.


To date only Emily Middlemas and Matt Terry have topped the charts and they're again the top two this week.

It was Halloween's Fright Night special and Emily Middlemas has stormed her way to the top.

Her cover of Creep has secured almost twice as many streams as closest rival Matt and 20,000 more than her song from last week did.

Honey G's latest 'performance' finds herself slipping down to Number 5, as Saara alto enjoys her highest placing yet at Number 3, with Sam Lavery at Number 4.

5 After Midnight ranked bottom of this week's chart but avoided the bottom three in Sunday's results.

It was 4 Of Diamonds and Gifty Louise who found themselves in the sing off and it was Gifty that found herself being sent home.

The chart figures show she had more streams then Ryan - who was saved by the lifeline vote - and 5 After Midnight, but less than sing off rivals Four After Midnight.

The X Factor 2016 continues live this Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV with Girl Group v Boy Band week.

* Streams correct as of November 3, 7AM.
