X Factor 2011: Craig Colton gives "the performance of the night"

Craig Colton

X Factor 2011 hopeful Craig Colton gave "the performance of the night" as he closed this evening’s Halloween special. The 22-year-old had the audience screaming with his cover of Adele's Set Fire To The Rain.

Louis Walsh raved: "Craig you know I love you, you're a great musical performer. I think you’re the heart and soul of The X Factor and I think you're now a contender."

Tulisa commented: "Craig, the more and more I hear you perform and sing the more I think 'This guy can sell albums'.

"I thought that was amazing performance, you went for it... my only criticism is, I find it a bit predicable and I want you to shock me one week. I know you can do it."

Guest judge Alexandra Burke added: "Let me break it down for you, you have a voice, the key is to come out every week and shock [the audience], surprise them. You can do it; you've got a great soulful voice."

"Craig Colton... that was the performance of the night," said his mentor Gary. "Well done."
