The X Factor 2012: Eliminations (Week 2)

Published: Sunday 14th Oct 2012 by Sam

The X Factor 2012 saw its 2nd set of eliminations tonight. Find out who’s heading home this week…

{An international phenomenon, local versions of the show show now air in the US, Italy, France and beyond. The brain-child of Simon Cowell, The X Factor is responsible for birthing the careers of Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, One Direction, Cher Lloyd and JLS.
Judging the hopefuls are Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, original panelist Louis Walsh, and newcomer Nicole Scherzinger}.

After registering the lowest public vote of the contestants, District 3 and Melanie Masson were two acts put on the chopping block.

The weekly sing-off proceeded with District 3 taking to the stage first singing Bryan Adams’ ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’, with Melanie following – singing Lorraine Ellison’s ‘Stay With Me’.

In the end, it was District 3 who were granted a pass onto next week’s show, after the judges became tied on who to save. The act’s fate was then reverted back to the public vote – which revealed Melanie to have the lowest support – ultimately sending her home.

The X Factor continues on ITV1 next Saturday.

    Pretty much stopped watching this show after Cheryl and Simon left. Watched part of the last season but it was mostly s***. Can’t stand Tulisa.

    Rylan loool

  3. KING October 14, 2012

    Melanie is better!

    Happy with the decision, Melanie was never going to be a star, plus she doesn’t really sing, she shouts a lot. Good decision.

    I’m also so happy my fav’s in the competition (Union J and Jade Ellis) are safe.

    Rylan was kept in to grab headlines and publicity for this failing show.

  6. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! October 14, 2012

    Melanie should’ve stayed. Gary wont be happy at losing a second person already.
