Will Jake Quickenden be Back For Good for X Factor finals?
Fans of Bottesford singer Jake Quickenden face a nervous wait to discover if he will advance to the live stages of hit television show The X Factor.
Jake, 24, was shown performing at the Judges' Houses stage of the singing contest on television this evening.
He travelled to Dubai to sing the Take That hit Back For Good for judge and Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, who was joined by American chart star Ne-Yo.
But after the performance, viewers were left guessing as to whether it would be good enough to take him through as one of the competition's final 12 acts.

Jake told host Dermot O'Leary: "My voice went off a couple of times but it was all right.
"I am happier than I was at boot camp, so that means something."
Discussing the performance, Ne-Yo said: "His falsetto clearly isn't as strong as it could be."
Nicole added: "He has a really nice tone but I just don't know if he is ready."
The remaining 24 acts in the contest have been split into four categories, for boys girls, groups and those aged over 28.
Three acts from each category will be selected to form the final 12.
The results will be revealed on ITV1 tomorrow (Sunday, September 30), from 7.40pm.
