X Factor finalists Jack and Joel have had a second week of good reviews from their judges after their latin medley.

The duo, made up of Jack Remmington from Gainsborough and Joel Fishel from Leeds, performed a mash up of Havana and Hasta el Amanecer by Camila Cabello and Nicky Jam as part of the show's Viva Latino themed week.

Judge Louis Walsh said they had delivered an amazing start to the show saying "Your personalities are just as big as your entertainment. Sharon Osborne said that the way they move is cute and highlighted that they could not be any more current performing the current UK number one. Fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger described the pair as "hot and spicy".

But the duo could the harshest criticism from their own mentor Simon Cowell, who returned after illness last weekend. He said that he believes they are popular because they are fun but says he does not feel they are the kind of act that works in the charts and is more "cabaret". He wants them to perform as though they are working on a new hit single.

Jack and Joel will find out later tonight whether they have received enough votes to remain in the competition. Our region's other finalist, Holly Tandy from Barnsley, will perform on tomorrow night's programme.
