Samantha Jade hot favourite to take out X Factor finale

THE Collective, Samantha Jade and Jason Owen are through to next week's X Factor grand final.

Ronan Keating's boy band survived the bottom two against Bella Ferraro after the deadlocked judges panel left the result to a public vote.

Samantha Jade is a hot favourite to win Tuesday's final decider after her single topped the iTunes chart during tonight's show.

According to SportsBet, she is the odds favourite to win but only just. Jade is at 2.00 odds, followed closely by The Collective on 2.10.

Owen is the long shot at 5.50 odds but his fans should not be underestimated as he is the only contestant in the top three to have never been in the bottom two.

Sir Elton John added some serious star power to tonight's show.

He performed two songs from his collaboration with Aussie electro duo PNAU for the first time on television.

The X Factor grand final performance show airs next Monday at 7.30pm on Seven.
