After being put their their paces in front of an unforgiving public for the past few months, the four remaining acts will try and retain their last remaining shreds of originality and self as they perform a Motown song and then ‘The Song To Get You To The Final’.

Teen wannabes Little Mix will take on slick soul man Marcus Collins, the extremely talented Misha B, and rock chick Amelia Lily and for a place in the show finale at Wembley Arena on Saturday, December 10.

Word has it that there will be no sing-off for the unfortunate acts in the bottom two on Sunday – with the public vote deciding who will battle it out to be crowned this year’s champion.

Tulisa Contostavlos’ act Little Mix are hoping to end the bad form of girlbands in the competition and offered this inciteful comment.

 “I think it’ll be nice for us to win because a girl group has never done it before,”

“It would be a nice change and I just think we’ve stayed ourselves the whole way through and it would be nice for Tulisa as well.”

Offering far more juicy copy are Amelia and Misha B, who were reportedly kept apart at an autograph-signing session due to their constant backstabbing of each other as they realise that it more than likely only one of them will make it throughj to the final.

An earwig in the X factor backstage scene told media that Amelia said “Misha has to go this week.” Gasp! Let’s hope no-one listens to her.

Meanwhile, if you’ve got insomnia, google how judge Tulisa has revealed she’s a jealous and selfish girlfriend – the only one in the world apparently. Snore zzzz.
