Brit makes it to the French X Factor final after being kicked off the UK version!

X Factor 2011

The name Matthew Raymond Baker is unlikely to ring many bells, indeed even as big X Factor fans ourselves we hadn't heard of him - but perhaps we should've! The youngster auditioned for The X Factor last year in Birmingham alongside the likes of Cher but failed to progress past bootcamp.

Thinking his dreams weren't going to go anywhere, Matthew moved to France as part of his languages degree where a brand new reality show was launching - one he was more than familiar with. Matthew auditioned for the first ever series of The X Factor earlier this year and made it all the way to the live shows. He's now in the final two and is favourite to win the show in next week's final on June 28!

Also featuring in the new French series are singing duo Twem, who made it to Simon Cowell's judges' houses on last year's show. Unfortunately the pair failed to survive the first live show, so it looks like Simon was right not to take them through!
