The X Factor 2013 Live Show Four

It's time to get out those flared trousers and platform shoes... fluff up the hair and put the roller skates on... it's disco week.

Dancing Dermot returned tonight, giving us his moves like no other, before handing over to music legends Chic featuring Nile Rodgers. They got the show off to an electric and fun start.

First up, was Luke Friend who did a phenomenal job of "Play That Funky Music" His voice suited the song down to the ground and at times his vocal reminded me of Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. Well done.

I was hoping for 'Big Fun' from Kingsland Road and I really can't fault the energy from these lads. Every week they give it 100%, but for me, this week there was still something missing. Mind you they do seem to have found all my clothes!

One of the hot favourites Tamera Foster took on disco classic "Wishing On A Star" and did a fantastic job. In this case, less is definitely better.

My mate Sam Callahan fought his way through "Relight My Fire" and I'm starting to get a little annoyed by Mr Barlow's negativity towards him. I'm not being blinkered, this wasn't Sam's strongest performance, but some of his comments were well over the top.

Right after Gary taking a load of glitter balls, let's hope his group Rough Copy deliver... Well OK, I have to admit they were very good and to date, it is probably the performance of the night.

After a couple of dodgy weeks, Abi Alton needed a big week and she took a disco classic (I Will Survive) and made it her own, with a mellow feel. It was much, much better and a huge improvement.

I love Nicholas McDonald, he has one of the best voices in the competition and he nails every theme, every week but performance wise, it wasn't perfect. He doesn't quite have the X Factor yet.

Fresh from being in the bottom two, Hannah Barratt knocked it out of the ball park. There is no way she will be in the bottom two this week. Amazing Hannah, excellent job.

Last up was the brilliant Sam Bailey. I love this woman, what a voice and very likeable. Give this woman a record contract NOW. Did I say I like Sam? Performance of the night by far.

There was no flash vote this week, the bottom two were Kingsland Road and Tamera.

The Fourth act to leave was Kingsland Road.
