The two X Factor contestants from our region have made it through the second week of the competition and will perform again on the talent show next week.

Jake Quickenden's performed a version of Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'. Judge Louis Walsh gave his rendition the thumbs up, but judge Simon Cowell said there were some parts of the the vocal that were "terrible". Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also said she did not like the choice of song, though the Scunthorpe singer's song did get the thumbs up from his own mentor Mel B and Louis Walsh.

Watch his performance here:

Jack Walton from Castleford opened the show with Paula Abdul's 'Straight Up' playing his guitar for much of the song. The 18 year old was praised by all the judges with Louis Walsh describing it as 'brilliant' and Simon Cowell describing him as one of his favourite contestants. He had earlier been seen meeting One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson from Doncaster who is supporting him.

The two acts who left the competition this week were Chloe Jasmine and Stephanie Nala. Jack and Jake will now join the remaining ten other acts singing in next week's show when the theme is movie week.

A former Bradford schoolboy has been voted off the X Factor after making the final three.

17-year-old Luke Friend attended Beckfoot School in Bingley, and learned to sing at his local Debut Theatre School.

After making the final three in the ITV show, the teenager duetted with Ellie Goulding - but was voted off last night.

He remained positive about the eviction, telling the audience, "Look how far I've come!"
