Shock exit for Aiden Grimshaw on The X Factor

Aiden Grimshaw is the latest contestant to be eliminated from The X Factor.

Aiden Grimshaw and last week’s survivor Katie Waissel faced each other in the bottom two after failing to gain enough votes for their Elton John covers from last night. Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue both save their own acts, with Simon Cowell saving Katie and Louis Walsh chose Aiden.


As the judges failed to compose a majority by themselves, the decision went to deadlock, in which the person with the lowest amount of public votes was sent home. In what was seen as a shock from the audience, Dermot O’Leary announced that Aiden would be leaving the competition.
