X Factor 2018: Dalton Harris leads downloads with Whitney Houston cover

x factor 2018 tx2 live - 18 dalton harris

Dalton Andre Harris is currently leading the way in this week's X Factor 2018 downloads.

Once again for the latest series, studio versions of all the tracks performed on the X Factor live shows have been released for download via iTunes and to stream via Apple Music.

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

All fourteen of the second round live performances have been made available following last night's show and Dalton is leading the way.

His cover of Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing won praise from the panel and appears to have been well received by viewers as well.

The song is currently the best selling of last night's performances and ranks at Number 36 in the overall iTunes download chart, between Shawn Mendes and Zara Larsson.

Dalton is the only X Factor act to currently crack the Top 100 Chart on iTunes, with Scarlett Lee the next highest contestant. Her cover of Elvis' Always On My Mind is at Number 123.

Struggling and potentially at risk of ending up in the sing-off tonight are boyband United Vibe. Their cover of Party In The USA for Guilty Pleasures week ranks down at 1,140.

They're just behind Ayda Williams' Overs - Danny Tetley and Janice Robinson - who could also be in danger. Janice was in the sing-off last week but was saved by the judges.

However, downloads and streams don't keep acts in the competition. Instead, it'll be viewer votes that decide who stays once again.

This weekend is another double elimination. The act with the least votes from the public will be instantly eliminated. The next two acts with the fewest votes will go forward to the sing-off. They'll perform again where the judges will decide who to save.

The X Factor is back at 8PM tonight on ITV with the second round of results, as well as performances from Little Mix and Kylie Minogue.
