None of the guest stars are duetting with the finalists this year, although this time James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas and Christopher Maloney are performing with their mentors: Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow.

The xFactor final is taking place at Manchester's Central Arena in front of 10,000 fans.


Kylie Minogue is wearing couture Antony Price and Garrard jewels for the grand performance (with Christian Vermaak):

X Factor said goodbye to Christopher Maloney on the first part of this weekend's final, leaving James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas to compete for the winner's crown (pic source).
Nicole Scherzinger experienced some inconveniences, when she discovered that her microphone was not working during her duet with Jahmene singing Whitney Houston's "Greatest Love Of All" , so the pair had to share! ;) (*applauds*).

American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson sang her 'Breakaway' while X Factor 2012 highlights appeared in the background - sweet and nice performance by Kelly, but could have been longer ;)

 And Kylie was definitely the highlight performer of the night!! The 10.000 crowd went crazy for the Aussie sunshine in wintery Manchester! Miss Minogue performed her re-mastered hit song, Can't Get You Out Of My Head from the latest orchestral greatest hits album, The Abbey Road Sessions:

And the winner is -----> James Arthur!!! "Wow" is the only comment the 24 year old could squeeze :)
The winner's single this year is the cover of Shontelle's "Impossible". You can download James single HERE.

The votes of the Week 10 FINAL:
James Arthur 53.7%
Jahmene Douglas 38.9%
Christopher Maloney (carried over from freeze) 7.4%

Special star guests included "the regular visitor" Rihanna performing a medley of Stay from her new album "Unapologetic" and We Found Love from her previous album "Talk That Talk". Stay is a beautiful lyrical song, but the crowd was craving something more, so it was a great choice to end it with a bang of We Found Love. Emeli Sandé performed her new single Clown from her debut album "Our Version of Events".
