Good evening Digital Spy forumerís and welcome to the Grande Finale of The X Factor 20. After ten weeks of competition, we have finally reached the finish line as tonight our two remaining acts got to battle as they looked to be crowned champion. After sixteen eliminations, Times Red and Adam Burridge last night finished in 4th and 3rd place respectively. Tonight, our two remaining acts will have one last chance to impress you by performing their favourite song from the series and their Winnerís single. After both acts have performed, the voting will open and you must vote for your winner by ranking them for 2 (Best) to 1 (Worst). After the voting has been closed later this evening, your winner will be crowned.

So, now itís time to get down to business. Theyíve worked incredibly hard to get their acts here putting in much time and effort to make sure they could get their acts to progress throughout this competition.

OK, let's kick this evening show off with our first trip to Steve and the Boys. This guy has come along way in the competition and is absolutely thrilled to have made it into the Top 2. The song he has chosen to perform again was from Club Week. He earnt a massive score and high praise from the judges. Here, with Starlight and hoping that he could be your winner, it's David Correy

David

Massive massive congrats on making it into the top 2 of the competition and doing it in some style of not falling into the bottom 2 at all. David I love the original of this song and have massive expectations when I see anyone covering it. I have to say even though it was a remix I was pleasantly surprised by the performance. It was a really good vocal performance. Personally I would have preferred if you had sang the original as it would have suited you more in my opinion or even better if you had completely rearranged the song like you did on the main show with the Kelly Clarkson number. But that's only my opinion, and David & Steve I honestly wish you the best of luck tonight.

*Standing Ovation after dancing among the audience*

DAVID, YOU DID IT MAN! This was my favorite and this was yours as well out of everything you've sung in this entire Series. You received the best praise out of us and once again, you took it to another level and you made it even more perfect the second time. I wanna thank you for helping me have the best time ever and this audience was 100% behind you right there! You would have a hit record with that song, definitely and I know that you'll be more special later. Thank you, David!

Brilliant comments there for David! The crowd were going mental for him. Is he your winner? Heíll be back soon with the song he hopes heíll be able to release as his winnerís single. Over to our second finalist now. These guys have been the massive underdogs of the competition but have come a long way. Theyíve worked incredibly hard having been in the Bottom 2 in Week One of the competition. The song they have chosen as their favourite performance was from Semi-Final week, a slight change from what was sent out on the running order. The judges loved it then and theyíll be hoping you do tonight. With ďI Need A DoctorĒ itís MK1

*Standing Ovation*

You have no idea how happy I am to see you guys still standing up on that stage as a part of the final 2 acts. I think from the beginning of the show you guys where considered as the underdogs and not many people would have placed a bet on you still being around in the competition. Guys I have to be totally honest with you because that's why I am on the panel and I have to say that I absolutely loved that performance. For me this was the best i have heardbyou and for me the best performance from the series. It was fierce and it was all what MK1 are about. The vocals from Charlie were on fire tonight and the rapping from both Sim and Charlie was on another level. For me I would say you guys may have become the favourites after that performance.

Well who would've thought it? Congratulations on making the Final two after what was a strong night for you last night. Now the first time you sung, it was a huge risk and way out of your comfort zone. However this time around, it was more on point and you both performed like you were fighting for survival. A key ingredient for the final, I can't wait for your next performance guys, amazing job.

THAT, was stunning throughout. You have improved SO MUCH and completely and utterly earned your place in the competition. You have had a lot to prove and your talent has spoken for itself throughout. On to the performance, that was a million dollar performance and the rapping and the vocals were really on the money. You've worked hard, you have smashed it. Brilliant!! Well Done!!!

Another fantastic performance from MK1. How are you all going to be able to decide which act you want to vote for to win? It is going to be a tough night for you viewers. Absolutely amazing performances from both tonight.

Right, over these ten sets of shows. All the judges have done an amazing job with their mentoring but Steve and Kuda have come along way. Steve lost three acts in the first two shows (one was later rein-stated) and Kuda took control of the struggling groups category managing to avoid any eliminations to Week 8. They have done a fantastic job to get two and then one each to the final. So, I want to give them the honour to tell you why there act deserves to win and let them introduce their act and their winnerís single.

Steve, I hand over to you.

Alright folks, this was a last minute change but it hasn't fazed him at all. David is arguably the best act I've ever mentored. He deserves to win because he has worked his backside off to get this far, he has never been in the sing-off and everytime he sings, he makes me a proud mentor. So here he is guys, ready to sing what may well be his winners single, I give you none other than David Correy!

David that was an absolutely beautiful performance tonight. David I loved the choice of song for your winners single specifically the start of the song as it was amazing to just hear your vocals take the lead on the song. I think your mentor has given you an excellent platform to fight every step of the way to the last vote for the title tonight. David from the bottom of my heart I wish you all the best of luck for the final votes.

That was a great vocal performance from you and I think you really sung like you mean it which is what the public wants to see. Congratulations on getting this far David. I think Soppyfan has been an incredible mentor to you, I've had a good time watching and critiquing you and I'm sure your fans did as well. Good luck tonight man

*Standing Ovation and feels emotional*

David, when I look back at show one with all of my five boys, I wanted to know what music style suited each one of you. With you David, it was just being versatile. I mean any song I give you, you make it sound awesome. Ever since then, you've just gotten better and better all the way through to this point. This song was perfect for you and you are just perfect to me because this had everything I wanted from you. I will always stand by you, it's out of my hands now...I pray the public will vote for you, you need to win this for us! PLEASE VOTE FOR DAVID!!!

*Stands up and walks to the stage to stand beside Mk1*

Listen to them? They are phenomenal. They are young, they came into this competition for the passion for music. If it wasn't for music, God knows what it would've been. They not only been battling each week to go to the next round, but they've been fighting for their fate as underdogs to be in this final and to win would be the icing on the cake. Out of all acts I've ever mentored, these guys are the most hardworking, they sing very unique songs, no one else is like them. They are fresh and refreshing and deserve to win. They are remarkable, look were they have come from live show 1 to now and performing their WINNERS SINGLE, here's MK1

Guys that was a really nice way to end your journey and appeal for votes. Charlie I absolutely love you as a vocalist but when you add in the rap appeal that you possess and then Sims incredible rapping I am just like wow. I know that you guys have a long long way to still go on your musical journey and will only improve but for me this was a good performance. Guys I have always vocally supported you guys and I always stick to my guns and hope you go all the way.

Oh guys, you are not making it easy for the public tonight! Of course, we have heard this song a few times before recently this year, but if anyone can make it as good as the original, it's you two. The rapping from Sim was as always spot on and Charlie, your voice has been quiet but it has been clear and pure throughout the Series. Your best performance of the Series by a mile. I wish you the best of luck with the votes later, well done for closing the show tonight.
