Liverpool's Christopher Maloney has taken to the stage at the X Factor live finals in Manchester.
Christopher, who was once a ship's crooner, sang 'What a Feeling' from the film Flashdance.
Judge Louis Walsh said: "You're the peoples' champion. You always come out fighting. You always deliver. I loved your high notes. Christopher, you've done it, you've changed your life, and you're not going back to Liverpool."
