X Factor final weekend is upon us – expect duets, dodgy cover versions and Dermot O'Leary in manic hug mode.
But who will leave the competition on the first night, leaving only two acts to battle for a record deal with Simon Cowell?
Will it be crooner Dalton Harris, sassy Scarlett Lee gold jail Facetime fiend Anthony Russell? According to those who are at Betfair and Paddy Power, Anthony is the favorite to snatch third place.
Sources say his odds tumbled after a series of exclusive Daily Mirrors revealed the singer had some dodgy friendships. He was a man in prison and was caught up with a killer.
He was pictured with brutal killer Michael Sands – sparking outrage among X Factor moguls, including Simon Cowell, who are said to have considered the finalist of the show for his links to the thug.
Sincerely, Neil Murphy, 18, in Liverpool in 2010.
He died days later. Earlier in the week he was caught video chatting with jailed Michael Trevillion, who was using a mobile phone that had been smuggled into prison.
28-year-old Anthony was at the ITV studios when he spoke to the man, once described as 'Merseydie's most wanted' on FaceTime.
Michael, seemingly using an account under the name John Smith, posted a screenshot of the call on his Facebook page on October 14, writing: "Just had a chat with my mate Anthony Russell [sic] he got the X Factor xxx "
