X Factor 2012: Christopher Maloney brings the cheese to ‘Hero’ and gets sunbed ban (VIDEO)

Christopher Maloney won himself the chance to perform on the X factor live shows earlier this evening.

The 34 year old singer was up against Times Red, Adam Burridge and Amy Mottram in the wildcard vote, where one previously eliminated contestant was awarded the chance to rejoin the competition.

Thanks mainly to Gary Barlow’s unwavering support and promotion, Chris proved the bookies right and sailed through tonight, taking the thirteenth spot on the ITV show.

Tonight, after promising Gary that he would contain his nerves, Chris performed Mariah Carey’s Hero for the audience and it was a pretty sweet and nice, if a little predictable, performance.

Maloney put a lot of emotion into the song and his vocals were pretty strong. However, we think his big selling point is going to be his likeability and personality in the competition.


LOUIS: It was heartfelt, you seem to have got a new colour, were you on a cruise ship recently.

NICOLE: Christopher who was that up there? I don’t recognise you. You’ve got rid of your nerves and you have a great big voice in you. Sometimes it was cheesy, a little bit cheesy. But it was uplifting and I know you meant every word.

TULISA: Confidence, I think you have an amazing voice that is undeniable. I have to agree with Nicole. The song choice was dated. Switch it up a bit.

GARY: Congratulations, welcome back. We couldn’t choose the songs for you this week. No more sunbeds thank you!
