After his judge pleasing two performances last night it seems that James Arthur also made an impression on you lot, coming top of the tally.

The 24-year-old singer polled an impressive 35% of the vote following his semi-final performances.

And it seems that Nicole Scherzinger could be taking two acts through to final if your votes are anything to go by.

Nicole's other act Jahmene Douglas wasn't far behind James either after his heartbreaking performance of 'I Look to You' caused Nicole Scherzinger to break down into a blubbering wreck on live TV.

Nice work Jahmene.

Jahmene polled an impressive 33% of your vote proving that there really isn't anything in it between himself and James.

In third place was boyband Union J who were backed by 18% of you.

However dark horse Christopher Maloney, who gained the least votes, wasn't far behind Union J polling 14%.

Tonight's results will be the first time the show doesn't have a sing off so whoever goes will have the public to solely thank for their exit.

Union J have already admitted that they think they will be going but if it were down to you lot, it seems they would be safe for another week.

The X Factor results air tonight on ITV1 at 8pm.
