With "The X Factor" UK 2013 grand finale just a couple of days to go, speculations on who would win this year's title has been doing the round - it could be Luke Friend, Nicholas McDonald or Sam Bailey.

Rough Copy were sent home in the semi-finals last week after their rendition of Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" in the sing-off failed to convince the audience, who voted Luke Friend to the finals. Luke sang Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know".

The top four finalists sang a song each by Beyonce and Elton John in the semi-finals.

Sam Bailey, who sang "If I Were a Boy", and "Candle in the Wind" last week, will sing "Edge Of Glory" by Lady Gaga, "Power Of Love" by Jennifer Rush and "And I'm Telling You" with Nicole Scherzinger. She received praises from the judges last week and one of her performances moved Sharon Osbourne to tears.

Luke Friend sang "Best Thing I Never Had", "Something About the Way You Look Tonight," and "Somewhere Only We Know" last week. This time, he will sing "We Are Young" by Fun, "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction and a duet - "Anything Could Happen" with Ellie Goulding.

Nicholas McDonald rendered "Halo" and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" in the semi-finals. On Saturday, he will sing "Candy" by Robbie Williams, "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan and "Flying Without Wings" with Shane Filan.

It's going to be a neck-to-neck competition and one of the finalists will be declared winner on Sunday, but going by the feedback of the judges and last week's performance, Sam Bailey seems to be the favourite to win the title.

However, it's the audience who will choose the winner - it can be Luke Friend, Nicholas McDonald or Sam Bailey!
