It’s Raining Men! All-Male Final For X Factor 2012. Christopher Maloney, James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas Slug It Out For Victory

Here come the boys! It’s an unusual mix for the 2012 X Factor final and not least because there’s not a single female in the running to take the crown for this year’s TV talent contest.

Instead, we have James Arthur, who has been hailed by his over-zealous mentor Nicole Scherzinger, as a true artist. A true, original artist, who absolutely does not sound like any other artist out there. Especially if you happen to be an American pop star, who possibly isn’t entirely au fait with the slew of male artists in the UK charts over the last few years, who have all sounded a little bit similar to James Arthur. And then you have Jahmene, the lovely young man with an incredible set of pipes and the worst case of nerves known in the history of the entertainment industry. Oh, sorry, no, scrap that – the SECOND worst case of nerves known in the history of the entertainment industry. That title, of course, must go to Christopher Maloney, the orange-skinned, grandma-loving Liverpudlian that has won over the voting public with his powerful vocals, his refusal to accept that the world has moved on since 1996 and, of course, his terrible case of nerves.

Union J were the last act to get the boot from the show, leaving these unlikely lads battling out in Saturday’s final. The show will be aired on ITV1 on Saturday December 8, at 8pm.
