Saturday night was club classics night on The X Factor 2012, as 11 acts prepared to become 10….
Christopher Maloney, one of Gary Barlow’s two remaining acts, kicked things off with the 80s hit Waiting For A Star To Fall. Could it be his star that falls on Sunday?
MK1 won a mixed response for their mash-up of 90s dance anthem Gypsy Woman and Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out
Jahmene Douglas won plaudits for his version of I Say A Little Prayer, but Gary wasn’t too sure about his dance moves
Jade Ellis overcame a vocal cords problem to sing Ultra Nate’s classic club anthem Free
However it was James Arthur who stole the show on Saturday night with an offbeat acoustic rendition of LMFAO’s Sexy And I Know It
Union J got all dressed up in matching outfits, and won rave reviews for their version of David Guetta’s When Love Takes Over
Rylan Clark delivered a medley of dance tunes including Jennifer Lopez’s Dance The Night Away – and once again Gary was unimpressed
Lucy Spraggan mixed David Guetta’s Titanium with one of her own songs, to winning effect
Kye Sones made up for last weekend’s disappointing performance with a piano version of Swedish House Mafia’s Save The World (Tonight) which won him Chris Martin comparisons
District 3 also upped their game with their mash-up of Madcon’s Beggin’ and Chris Brown’s Turn Up The Music
And Ella Henderson rounded things off singing You Got The Love – only for Gary to once again be critical of her dance moves
Sunday night’s show kicked off with a group performance of Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody
And Gary Barlow had the chance to show off his incredulous face when it was revealed that Robbie Williams had tweeted support for Rylan
Emeli Sande took to the stage to perform a duet with rapper Labrinth
And when it came to the results there were celebrations all round for nine of the acts – including James Arthur who made it through another week
However poor old Kye found himself in the sing-off, and for a while it looked as though Gary might lose yet another act….
….but in the end it was MK1 who were sent home – the first group to leave – after the result went to deadlock once more
The result proved to be an emotional one for Tulisa, who had compared the band to N-Dubz. And now the top ten acts remain….
