X Factor 2016 charts! There's a surprise at Number 1 this week...

Our latest X Factor 2016 chart is here and there's a surprise at Number 1.

The X Factor live performances this year aren't being uploaded to iTunes as in past series but they are available to stream online via Spotify.

And we've crunched the numbers to bring you the charts of the remaining contestants each week.

Last Saturday was Girl Band v Boy Band and we've got a brand new number one.

Matt Terry and Emily Middlemas had only ever led the way until this week where - aptly - 5 After Midnight take the crown.

Their cover of Spice Girls' Say You'll Be There was the most streamed track of the latest batch of songs.

However it was MIGHTY close at the top with just 1,000 or so streams splitting 5 After Midnight, Emily and Four Of Diamonds.

While Emily has regularly been at the top with her performances since Week 1, Four Of Diamonds have achieved their highest placing ever.

Which makes their elimination on the Sunday even more tough to take, proving once more that people aren't voting for the music they actually want to listen to.

Matt came in for some criticism for his song choice at the weekend and that appears to be echoed in his chart position. For the first time this year, he's NOT in the top 2 and slips below even Honey G to fifth place.

Right at the bottom is poor Saara who was in the sing off against Four Of Diamonds in Sunday's results.

Nicole Scherzinger suggested her cover of Girls Aloud's Sound Of The Underground wasn't great and it seems listeners agreed.

Sam Lavery, who also covered a Girls Aloud performance, fell into the bottom three for the first time in the latest results and that is also reflected in this week's chart.

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

* Streams correct as of November 9, 11PM.
