X Factor: Who is the most popular contestant?

As the X Factor reaches week six, the remaining contestants are now over halfway through the competition. It’s Disco theme this week and the final seven acts will battle it out for their chance to be one step closer to the final.

Matt Terry and Emily Middlemas have stolen the headlines after consistently being praised by the judges for their performances. Both Matt & Emily will have one eye on the final already. Whilst we’ve seen Ryan Lawrie survive the bottom three vote on three separate occasions and Saara Aalto has survived the sing off on three occasions, both acts must surely be edging closer to elimination.

After each show you can access the finalists’ performances on YouTube and you can follow them on Twitter. We’ve taken a look at the final seven contestants' odds in comparison to their Twitter followers and views on YouTube from the show. You’ll be shocked at a few of them!
