X Factor 2012: Rebecca Ferguson performs 'Backtrack' (VIDEO)

Rebecca Ferguson

Former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson was back on the stage tonight, singing Backtrack.

The Liverpudlian singer finished as runner up on the show in 2010, and returns to perform her single tonight.

Before going out on stage, Rebecca advised this year's contestants to make sure they made their feelings known and to stand up for themselves.

“My advice is, if you are going to go on X Factor you have to know who you are as an artist," Rebecca told the newspaper. “A lot of people go on, get told what to do, make a fool of themselves and then blame someone else.

“When I went on there I was asked to sing things and I used to say ‘no way’. You have to know who you are as an artist. If you are not happy with the song, don’t sing it. Simple as that – no one forces you to do it.”

Rebecca was singing her new song Backtrack, dressed in a very daring glittering golden catsuit.

With autumn brown hair, the sexy mum of one was surrounded by male dancers as she belted out the track, which is out now.

Speaking to Dermot O'Leary after singing, Rebecca revealed her favourites were Ella Henderson and Chris Maloney.
