Janet seems a sure fire bet for a bottom two place, after she forgot her lyrics AGAIN on the show. She explained it was because she thought she was going to be sick, and speculated about whether she’d eaten something dodgy. The poor gal will need to rely on the sympathy vote.
Misha impressed the judges with ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ and ‘Killing Me Softly,’ but it seems that might not have been enough to keep the singer in favour with the public. She was saved by the judges when she was up against Kitty Brucknell a couple of weeks ago: will she be saved again?

New data this morning from a social buzz analyser suggests that Misha could be in for a rough ride tonight. Professor Noreena Hertz and her team of social scientists predict the feisty singer will be in the danger zone, based on their findings from tracking and measuring Facebook and Twitter results.
The team charts the response of social networks to the ITV show and shares findings on a live leader board at www.xfactortracker.com. They successfully tested their technique on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and last week they correctly predicted Amelia Lily and Craig Colton would be bottom.
The X Factor Tracker has also correctly predicted the outcome of the show six out of seven times. Amelia Lily is the safest, according their data, followed by Little Mix and then Marcus Collins. However, earlier today, Little Mix were in the danger zone, which gave us a shock.
Not many of our followers on Twitter were predicting Little Mix to be in the bottom two. The group gave an alright performance in the first round of the show, but really came into their own in the Heroes round with their emotional rendition of the Christina Aguilera hit ‘Beautiful.’
One thing seems certain: Janet will have to sing for survival.We’ll find out on tonight's show if they are right again!
