Nicolo Festa and group F.Y.D have become the first acts to be eliminated from this year’s The X Factor.
Nicolo scored the lowest amount of public votes and was first to be eliminated. He was left stunned at the decision by the public. This left F.Y.D and Katie Waissel, who had been one of the favourites to be eliminated this week, in the bottom two. The pair each performed for the judges again who then decided which act would be leaving the competition.
Simon backed his group F.Y.D, with Cheryl backing her act Katie Waissel. Dannii then chose to give Katie another go, which left Lous with the final vote. Louis also voted to send home F.YD and they were eliminated from the competition. Katie left the stage in tears at the announcement that she was through to the second week.
