Andrea Faustini takes to the stage this weekend in a final bid to beat Fleur East and Ben Haenow to the title of X Factor winner.

The Italian singer has already recorded his version of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength’ by Whitney Houston which he will release as a single should he emerge victorious on Sunday night.

Both Ben and Fleur have opted to lay down their rendition of “Something I Need” by One Republic.

But with stiff competition, what are 20-year-old Andrea’s chances of following the likes of Alexandra Burke, James Arthur and Sam Bailey to victory?

Ladbrokes has relegated Andrea to the outside bet ahead of the final with odds of 14/1. Fleur is the runaway favourite at 4/11 while Ben is at 11/4.

Andrea found himself in the bottom two last weekend but Lauren Platt left the competition after a sing-off.

Look back at some of Andrea’s best performances:

"I Didn't Know My Own Strength" by Whitney Houston

"Earth Song" by Michael Jackson

"Somebody To Love" by Queen

"Summertime" by Ella Fitzgerald

"Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding

Andrea will be singing Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” on Saturday, along with “Earth Song” by Michael Jackson which he chose as his song of the series with mentor Mel B.


The X Factor final airs on ITV this Saturday at 8.30pm and again on Sunday at 8pm.
