The X-Factor 2010 saw its first eliminations tonight. Find out who’s heading home this week…
After registering the lowest public vote of the contestants, Nicolo Festa was eliminated first.
Describing how he felt about being the first act sent home, the student said “I feel like crap”.
With group FYD and controversial Katie Waissel remaining as the acts with the lowest public support, the weekly sing-off proceeded with FYD taking on Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop The Music’, while Waissel sang Annie Lennox’s ‘Don’t Let Me Down’.
In the end, it was Waissel who was granted a pass onto next week’s show, after all judges (besides FYD’s mentor Simon Cowell) opted to save her.
