Italian singer Andrea Faustini is already being touted as a possible winner of The X Factor 2014 and he knows just what he'd do if he won: buy a car!

The loveable 20-year-old from Rome booked his place in the live shows over the weekend, when viewers saw him impressing Mel B and her guest mentor Emma Bunton at Judges' Houses in Cancun, Mexico.

Andrea joins Jake Quickenden and Paul Akister in the boys category.

While showing off his glam X Factor makeover, the singer said: "[If I won] I would buy a car, maybe. I'm not very good at driving so just a small one, to start with."

We don't personally think Andrea really needed a makeover (why get rid of the pugs jumper?!), but he said he was looking forward to the process of switching up his look for live shows.

"I think it's a very fun side of this job. Obviously you have to be focused on singing but that is a very fun side and I love choosing outfits."

Please, please, please make the pug shirt make an appearance on stage!

Looking ahead to next week, he said: "I just want to sing my heart out, show everyone who I really am, and give everything I have. I think this is the greatest chance I've ever had in my life. I still can't believe it right now.

"I'm not thinking about rivals. I'm just thinking about the singers who are really good. I really like Paul, I love his style and I think he's an amazing soul singer. I think he's going to do really well. I wouldn't call him a rival but I think he's very good."

X Factor continues this weekend on ITV1.
