Samantha Jade still the favourite to win it all on X Factor

SAMANTHA Jade is once again the bookie favourite to take out the 2012 X Factor crown after two strong performances last night.

The 25-year-old had slipped behind boy band The Collective over the weekend, but has fought back to 1.70 odds over Collective's 2.20 odds according to SportsBet.

Way2Bet had similar odds of 1.7 for Jade, 1.9 for The Collective and Jason Owen the long-shot at 8.2 odds.

IASbet.com gave Jade a more solid lead over The Collective at 1.65 to 2.25.

Last night the pint-sized pop singer debuted her original winner's single What You've Done To Me, which her mentor Guy Sebastian described as a "radio smash".

Fans have until noon AEDT, or 11am Queensland time, today to vote for their favourite X Factor finalist.
