Emily Middlemas' performance of Rag 'n' Bone Man's Human has helped the song on its way to Number 1.

After Emily's showcasing on The X Factor, and being announced as one of BBC's Sound of 2017 nominees a day later, the song has been crowned top of the UK's Official Trending chart.

The track had originally made its debut on the Official Singles Chart at a lowly Number 77 last week.

However, since Emily's performance on Saturday night, the song has shot up 68 places and is currently Number 9 in the latest midweeks according to the Official Chart Update.

And that huge climb has put the song - by British singer-songwriter Rory Graham - at Number 1 in the Official Trending Chart, a rundown of the UK's biggest growing hits.

Human isn't the only song trending thanks to The X Factor.

Sia's Alive has bounced back up the rankings following Matt Terry's performance of the track during Saturday night's live Quarter Finals alongside Emily.

And elsewhere, Ellie Goulding's Still Falling For You has been boosted by her performance on the Strictly Come Dancing results show on Sunday night.

The X Factor continues live this Saturday and Sunday with the semi-finals.
