"I absolutely love Michael Jackson. I like watching people who are wild on stage and just dance all over,' the News of the World quoted him as saying. He added: "That's how I want to be."
The 18-year-old sang a duet of Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me with George Michael on the show. Speculations are high that McElderry will win the talent show. A source said: "It's a given - Joe will be crowned X Factor winner. It's been a one-horse race for a while now.
McElderry said: "Winning would be a dream come true. I would be the happiest man alive. There's nothing I am afraid of in the future. I want to grab hold of it. There's no way I would let success change me - no matter what, I want my family around me. I'm not in this to be famous - it's all about the singing."
