It's time to face the X Factor round-up! Week six saw contestant pluck tracks from X Factor's version of the Great British Songbook. So what happened?

Tamera Foster swapped Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody for a remix of Shirley Bassey's Diamonds Are Forever at the last minute, prompting another bout of Tamnesia as she forgot her lyrics once again. Awkward.



Sam Callahan took on George Michael's Faith, which for us was a bit of a snore, though the normally disgruntled Gary Barlow gave the boy a little praise for once. Nice.



Elsewhere, Sam Bailey took on a little known George Harrison/Beatles track, Rough Copy gave us a hot and cold version of Coldplay's Viva la Vida, and Nicholas McDonald did Adele's Someone Like You.

Luke Friend then did Elton John's Your Song, which we think sounds a lot better when you listen to it a second time, and of course try to ignore the weirdly romantic background video, while Hannah Barrett came back from last weekend's bottom two with a Rolling Stones classic.

So what do you think? Who was your favourite of the night?
