X Factor shock as Emily Middlemas becomes most streamed contestant

WHEN it comes to The X Factor, Emily Middlemas isn’t usually the name thrown around when discussing possible winners.

Turns out she’s actually a surprise hit with fans.

The teen from Scotland became the most streamed contestant this week on Spotify following her performance on last Saturday’s show.

Her version of Creep has been played over 43,000, cementing her as the firm favourite with music lovers.

It could all be part of a bigger plan for the singer.

Matt Terry is currently tipped to win the show but his version of Nina Simone’s I Put a Spell on You has only been streamed around 24,000 times.

Honey G isn’t doing too bad, being played just over 15,000 times along with Saara Aalto.

Another contestant will be eliminated on Sunday night after the finalists sing on Saturday’s Girlband vs Boyband night.

The X Factor continues weekends on ITV at 8pm.
