Maroon 5 made their big X Factor debut this evening, as they took to the stage to lighten the mood in the middle of tonight’s results show.

This evening viewers were informed there would be another double elimination of acts, in the second results episode of the series, so the atmosphere was tense.

What better to pick things up then than performances from the very lovely Jessie J and US rock act Maroon 5? It’s fair to say neither act disappointed!

Only weeks ago Jessie J was blasting the X Factor, insisting that she would never again take part in the ITV show and criticising it for its bullying culture, however tonight it seems the Price Tag hitmaker was happy to make use of its fanbase.

Jessie has of course appeared on the ITV series previously. She assisted Tulisa Contostavlos in judges houses as she picked the best of her acts, and just weeks later announced that she would be joining rival TV show The Voice as a coach.

Madonna

Over the years, The X Factor has signed up some of the biggest names in music to perform during the show’s December finale, and it seems this year, Simon Cowell has pulled off something of a coup de grâce by lining Madonna up for a live performance.
