Carlisle's Mikey Bromley has survived another week in the X Factor.

The singer and his group, Only the Young, faced a nervous wait. They were the last act to be told they had been saved by the public vote which meant they avoided the sing off.

The group performed 'I Wanna Be Like You', from The Jungle Book, on Saturday night's show.

Watch their performance here.
