Her performance of the Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars track won high praise from the show's judges and viewers at home. Ronson's original version of the song won't be released in the UK until January 11. This weekend, East will compete against Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini to be crowned this year's X Factor winner. The finalists will perform in front of a 10,000-strong crowd at London's SSE Arena Wembley. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's final act Lauren Platt was eliminated from the series last night (December 7), after falling into the bottom two with Faustini. Meanwhile, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Meghan Trainor, Olly Murs and Demi Lovato will appear on this weekend's final, with the finalists' duet partners set to be revealed later in the week.
