After forgetting his lines to Adele's 'Hello' two weeks ago, Che said he has adopted a new approach to help him get through the live shows, while admitting he's looking forward to the all important final.

"I feel weirdly confident," Che told Reveal at the X Factor red carpet event at Hilton London Wembley. "I performed at the Royal Albert Hall the other day and walking out there was unbelievable and I felt fine, so I think it's set me up now to go out to Wembley and just do what I do.

"I'm just going to have some fun, we're in the finals, so I think it's important not to think about it too much. That's what I did when I forgot my lyrics, I was nervous and I thought about it too much. Now I just relax and chill out."

Speaking of that moment when he forgot his lyrics, Che said: "Getting through on the Sunday after I forgot my lyrics to 'Hello' was the most relieved I've ever been because the whole night I just though about it. It was a horrible moment. The biggest song on the planet and I forget my lyrics!"

Although, after it was confirmed that Adele would actually be performing 'Hello' on the results show, Che said he is sure Adele will be fine with his slip up.

"She'll understand, she'll have a laugh," he said.

Nick says Che has got one of the best voices he's ever heard.

Judge and Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, who is mentoring Che, added: "She'll probably like it. You don't want someone to do your song better. So she'll probably be like, 'Nice one'!"

Of course, Nick is backing Che to go all the way in the competition.

"It would feel amazing to win," Nick told us. "I'd love for Che to win because he's so talented and he's really great to work with. He's got one of the best voices that I've ever heard, not just on the show. It would mean a lot, I'd love him to win. He's voice is insane and undeniable."
