Craig Colton leaves the X Factor

Craig ColtonCraig Colton has become the latest act to be voted off the X Factor.

The singer was in the bottom two with Amelia Lily having failed to secure enough of the public vote to survive. Gary Barlow, who is Colton’s mentor, and Tulia Contostavlos both opted to save Colton. Barlow was critical of Lily’s performance during the sing-off while Tulia admitted she was torn over who to save. Kelly Rowland, who defended Lily from Barlow’s criticisms, opted to save her as did Louis Walsh.

With two votes for each act the judges were in deadlock for the first time this year and Colton exited as he was the act with the fewer public votes. Earlier this week Amelia Lily became the bookies favourite to win the X Factor this year however, after ending up in the bottom two this week that might now change.
