Imagine dancing Christmas trees, an over-sized fairy costume and marching soldiers and it’s only the tip of what Leona Lewis’s performance was last night on the X Factor semi-final results show.

The former X Factor winner took to the stage for an extremely festive rendition of her latest single, ‘One More Sleep’.

Twenty-eight-year-old Leona dressed up as a fairy for the occasion with massive wings and an over-sized ball-gown.

Meanwhile, women in giant Christmas tree costumes danced alongside Leona, bending over to reveal their skimpy underwear.

The reaction on Twitter was mixed, with one person writing, “Yeah, this needs more camp. #xfactor.”

Following the bizarre performance, judge Nicole Scherzinger praised the star, saying; “Oh my God, that was schamazing! Merry sch-Christmas!”

Leona then described her album as “a whole Christmas album, some classics and some new ones.”

She turned to the contestants and said, “Oh my gosh, just give it all you’ve got. At this point in the competition it’s just about topping each performance every week.”

However, she refused to answer Dermot’s question as to who was her favourite, saying; “I can’t say, I was on the show. That’s not fair.”

She finally admitted mother and former prison officer Sam Bailey was her favourite. “She’s amazing. And I’m happy Sharon’s here!,” Leona added.
