WAGNER Fuiza-Carrilho continues to defy the odds as X Factor fans vote him through to the sixth week of the live TV show.

Donning a white sparkling jumpsuit, with a curled lip and a shake to his hips, the Pensnett singer took to the stage this weekend with another colourful and energetic medley of Elvis hits Viva Las Vegas and The Wonder of You in the American anthem themed show.

Finishing the performance the judges were drowned out by the sounds of the audience chanting the Brazilian's name before they commented on his song.

And although the judges said the first part of the medley was slightly off key, they heaped praise on the second half of the performance, with mentor Louis Walsh saying: "The second song was really good. I think it proves to your critics that you actually can sing."

Even Simon Cowell admitted to secretly liking the flamboyant singer, commenting: "I've got to be honest with you, it's like when you go on a funfair and you go on the big dipper, it's something you like but you shouldn't like and I've kind of got to that place with you right now. I'm actually concerned that I liked that performance."

And the thousands of Wagner fans also agreed, as the 54 year-old former teacher once again survived the seventh exit and escaped the bottom two, jumping for joy at the announcement.

However the news was met with a chorus of loud boos from the Sunday night audience and judge Cheryl Cole could not hide her disappointment as the camera caught her reaction to Wagner's survival and saw her act and Tamworth singer Treyc Cohen leave the competition following a controversial voting off process.

But Wagner's popularity continues to soar, as thousands of fans sign up to Facebook pages dedicated to the Blewitt Street star.

And the latest celebrity to announce his support for the singer is Twilight film star Robert Pattinson, who pledged his support in a national newspaper over the weekend.

Backing Wagner to win, Robert told the paper said: "I love this guy He doesn't have the best voice, but he enjoys what he does and I respect him for that.

"It’s great just to see him wind Simon Cowell up."

And the film star also said he hoped Wagner made it through to the final and promised to declare his support from the studio.

He added: "I really hope Wagner is still in by the final. If filming allows I'll be there, and I guarantee I'll be wearing a 'Vote Wagner’ T-shirt'."
