Alton competed in the sing-off this week alongside Hannah Barrett after the pair drew the lowest number of votes from the public. Alton performed Ed Sheeran’s Lego House in the sing-off while Barrett sang Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.
Nicole Scherzinger refused to vote between them on the basis of being the mentor of both acts. Gary Barlow and Sharon Osbourne both chose to send home Alton.
Louis Walsh added that he would have voted the same as his fellow judges.
I never in a million and one years anticipated that I would get this far. I’ve had the time of my life and I’ve met the most amazing people. I would never change it so thank you. – Alton
