Dalton Andre Harris is once again leading the way in this week's X Factor 2018 downloads on iTunes.

As always, studio versions of all the tracks performed on the X Factor's latest live show have been released for download via iTunes and to stream via Apple Music.

For a fourth week running, Dalton is leading the way after a round of Big Band themed performances.

His cover of Beyonce's Listen accompanied by the show's orchestra won a standing ovation from judges Simon Cowell, Ayda Williams, Nile Rodgers (standing in for Robbie Williams) and Dalton's mentor Louis Tomlinson.

The song is currently the best selling of last night's performances and ranks at Number 18 in the overall iTunes download chart, the highest ranking release from all this year's live shows so far.

What's more, Dalton's covers of California Dreamin', Creep and I Have Nothing from past weeks are also currently ranking in iTunes' Top 100 countdown.

Dalton is the only X Factor act to currently crack the top end of the chart, with Brendan Murray the next highest contestant. His Big Band cover of Say Something is at Number 137.

At the other end and it seems as though Simon's girls' song choices didn't quite connect with viewers this week. Shan Ako is at Number 319 with her take on Summertime while Bella Penfold ranks at Number 458 with Strong.

Downloads and streams of course, 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 fifth round of results, as well as performances from Cheryl and Tom Walker.
