“It’s been absolutely incredibly, the people that I have met during this time have just been amazing.” – Jay
Tonight’s results programme saw Jay and Stevi Ritchie sing for survival after gaining the fewest number of votes from the public. In the sing off Jay sang Somewhere Only We Know by Keane, while Stevi covered Queen’s Somebody To Love.
After each act had performed the judges delivered their verdicts with Simon Cowell in the unenvied position of choosing between two of his acts.
Simon chose to send home Stevi, with Louis Walsh agreeing with him. Melanie Brown and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini both chose to send home Jay.
With two votes a-piece the vote was taken to Deadlock with Dermot O’Leary revealing that Jay had received fewer votes from the public than Stevi and would therefore be leaving the competition.
“Jay, you’ve been a gentleman, a really nice guy to work with.” – Simon Cowell
Tonight’s results show also featured performances by Olly Murs and Nicole Scherzinger and the premiere airing of the Band Aid 30 track and official video.
The X Factor continues next Saturday at 8.00pm on ITV.
