X Factor acts James Michael, Sophie Habibis, 2 Shoes and Jonjo Kerr face the axe in tonight's harsh twist, it has been revealed. The four singers are currently the favourites to leave in this evening's results show where the judges will each kick out off a contestant in their own category.
For the boys, it's James Michael who is tipped for the chop after a poor performance on last night's first like show.
Kelly Rowland said: “James you look like and artist, you feel like one every time we have an encounter and I see you but I was really disappointed in the vocal tonight because I have heard you sound much better than that. I don’t know if that was the best song.”
For the Overs, and it seems Jonjo is set to be cast aside after he also flopped when taking to the stage for the first time. Take That Gary Barlow star warned him after the song: “You’ve made Louis’ decision tomorrow night an easy one.”
He added: “I think you enjoy this experience tonight, because actually seeing you among all the other acts, you stick out like a sore thumb to me.”
Gary was also harsh to 2 Shoes, with the Essex duo favourites to be kicked out by Tulisa in the results show. An unimpressed Gary Barlow said: “I want to be nice, I just wannabe nice but girls... karaoke night in Romford.
“I’m sorry Tulisa, I get the car, the dancers to try to disguise the fact that we’ve actually got two really mediocre singers but I don’t get this relationship, you with these girls.”
For the girls and the choice is tough, with all four of the talented teenagers receiving great comments from the judges. It seems that Janet and Misha are both safe, with it being a battle between Sophie and Amelia for the axe. As it stands, it's a battle that Sophie is losing following her performance of Teenage Dream last night.
Of course it's the judges own choice, and any of the final 16 could go. Tune into The X Factor tonight on ITV1 to see who they pick...
