You voted in your thousands to crown James omg!'s X Factor winner, beating Jahmene Douglas, Union J, and Over 28 Christopher Maloney.

Rylan Clark was also in the running when the poll started and interestingly came above Christopher Maloney despite getting the boot from the show this week.

James won the poll with 40% of the votes, closely followed by Jahmene with 30%, Union J came third with 11% and interestingly Rylan came fourth with 8% and Chris last with 7%.

So if omg! has their way it would have been Christopher Maloney facing Rylan Clark in the bottom two this week instead of Union J.

And it's not just you who loves James, celebs love him too!

Just today Holly Willoughby admitted she had a bit of a crush on James (yeah, join the club love) and James has the backing of a certain One Direction.

However, although omg! readers have voted the amazing James Arthur (also one of our faves) it seems Christopher Maloney is topping other reader polls elsewhere.

Simon Cowell is reported to be terrified that Chris could win, however it is the public who decides so no one can really say it's unfair whoever wins.

It just goes to show that you really do need to pick up your phones this Saturday if you don't want to see your fave go!
