James Arthur got into a Twitter spat with comedian Frankie Boyle after Frankie called him a "tramp".
The risqué comedian commented on James Arthur's appearance in the semi-final by saying James was "a cross between a tramp and a duckling".
James replied, "Poor old man making yet more s*** jokes about Xfactor because he knows that's the only way he can get attention any more #prat."
Frankie came back with the tweet, "I think if I wanted attention I'd sing covers on a talent show, inked up like a schooldesk in a remedial class."
James wasn't happy with that as he replied, "Your (sic) about as funny as aids. Your a sad man and I can't wait to see you coz it's about time someone gave you a reality check."
Fans of Frankie started tweeting James Arthur urging him to lighten up which made James tweet out, "So apparently I need a sense of humour. Or do you mean a sick mind and loser mentality?"
James did try to end the Twitter fight but Boyle got one more dig in by saying, "No hard feelings. When I see you I'll throw some money in your hat."
Getting the last word in, James responded, "I have a feeling I'll be alright pal."
Last week Frankie also made a crude joke about Jahmene Douglas's relationship with mentor Nicole Scherzinger.
Surprisngly Jahmene hit back and said, "Closer than you'd get to any woman with a mind as vile as yours."
Guess Nicole really has helped Jahmene find his balls!
Reckon Frankie was being funny or taking things too far?
