The X Factor's Emily Middlemas has something to prove...that she does own a pair of shoes!

Emily, 18, is known for going barefoot when performing live each week on The X Factor but, fear not, she isn't always without footwear.

Taking to social media, the singing hopeful poked fun at her on-stage style preference by taking a video selfie. In the clip, she is wiggling her feet around while wearing some stylish trainers. Phew!

Captioning the Instagram post, Emily joked: "I wear shoes sometimes..."

Emily isn't the first X Factor contestant to favour going barefoot over heels. In 2008, Diana Vickers was known for shunning shoes during each live performance.

Meanwhile, it has been a tough week for Emily, as her boyfriend Ryan Lawrie was eliminated from The X Factor during Sunday night's live show.

His exit will have been hard for the couple, who were already together before The X Factor hit our screens in August.

Following his departure, Ryan spoke out and said he is confident that Emily has got what it takes to win the show.

Speaking on spin-off show The Xtra Factor, Ryan said: "I think she's already won it no matter what, but yes, I think she'll win it."

And during an interview on Lorraine, he added: "She can go on and win it now because she's talented and so different."

The X Factor continues at 8pm, ITV1, this weekend.
