The X Factor 2012: who should win the final?

Who deserves to be this year's winner: Jahmene, James or Christopher? Have your say in our high-level massively scientific poll...

Now we have our final three – all male, all solo singers – who do you think should win The X Factor?


On Sunday night, it was announced that Union J had left the competition after polling the lowest number of votes in the semi-final – leaving Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur and Christopher Maloney to compete for the crown over two nights at Manchester Central.

Do Jahmene Douglas’s soaring, twiddly high notes and moving personal history make you root for him? Or do you prefer the grittier, more contemporary look and sound of James Arthur?

The two-part X Factor final starts this Saturday on ITV1 at 8pm.
