X Factor: Amelia Lily finishes in third place

Amelia Lily has finished in third place in the X Factor final

The finale weekend kicked off tonight with a spectacular show live from Wembley Stadium in London. The final three acts, Marcus Collins, Amelia Lily and group Little Mix performed twice on the show. In a change to previous years, the final three sang with their respective judges rather than a musical guest.

Amelia returned to the competition half way through the series after Frankie Cocozza decided to leave the competition after breaking a number of rules. There was speculation on the internet of a fix after music retailer HMV uploaded a holding page for Amelia as the winner.

Little Mix are currently favourite to win the competition which comes to a climax tomorrow.
