However, she could be set to lose another one of her contestants this weekend as bookmaker OddsMonkey has put Janice Robinson at risk of being eliminated with their latest odds.
Janice faced the dreaded sing off last weekend, but managed to scrape through to this week’s second live show as Simon Cowell, 59, decided to save her.
If Janice were to leave this weekend, Ayda would be even further from becoming winning judge, with the bookmaker placing her at 25/1 to provide a winning act.
Speaking about the latest odds, OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton said: “Talking of attracting money in the betting market, Janice has been seen plenty of it – but for the wrong reasons.
“She is 6/4 favourite to be out, ahead of Giovanni and LMA Choir, who were both favourites to go in the opening week.”
However, not all the odds are negative with Simon’s act Shan Ako at the top of the polls to win the 15th series of the ITV show.
Shan performed a breathtaking rendition of Imagine by John Lennon in the first live shows, with her odds now at 7/4 to win the competition.
Peter added: “Shan was impressive, and it is no surprise to see her back at the head of the market along with Misunderstood and Brendan Murray.”
Although three acts are at the top of the table, there has been significant movement from one particular contestant in the latest odds.
Peter explained: “The real big mover in the win market has been Dalton Andre Harris, he has really moved into contention this week and he has attracted a lot of money.
“Off the back of Dalton’s interest, money has also been coming for Louis to be winning mentor as he is now second favourite at 7/4.”
However, with Shan leading the winning odds, her mentor Simon has become hotly contested to land his second consecutive win as judge, sitting at 4/5 on the odds table.
This weekend, the remaining 14 acts will take on songs based around the theme of guilty pleasures.
Bookies favourite Shan will be performing a rendition of Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word by Elton John.
Whereas Janice will returning to her 90’s roots, trying her best to win round the public with Show Me Love by Robin S.
Janice blew the judges away in her first audition when she performed her own track Dreamer, by R&B group Livin’ Joy, which she was a part of.
However, her fellow Overs contestant Danny Tetley will be hoping for a smoother start to his performance this weekend.
The Benidorm barman was hit with technical difficulties moments into his performance of Hero by Mariah Carey, with the voice-over person introducing a completely different contestant.
X Factor continues tonight at 8.35pm on ITV.
