X Factor 2013 results: Who was voted off? Luke Friend or Rough Copy?

The X Factor results show tonight was hard to watch we have to admit, because the remaining acts have gotten so far and there wasn’t a bad one among them.

We have already lost the mediocre singers, the nervous performers and those hopefuls that showed a depressing lack of personality and this evening we felt that Rough Copy, Sam Bailey, Nicholas McDonald and Luke Friend all deserved a place in next weekend’s finale for one reason or another.

X Factor 2013 results: Who left? Well Luke Friend and Rough Copy are in the singoff!

This week’s X Factor results show was the most tense yet and we have to admit we were on the edge of our seats when Dermot O’Leary emerged to deliver the fateful news to the remaining contestants.


Last night Sam Bailey didn’t put a note wrong in either of her performances and looked like a shoe in for the final, however Nicholas McDonald – who was hot on her heels for weeks – let himself down with his first song, while Luke Friend and Rough Copy have both been in the bottom two before so were definitely on shaky ground.

The X Factor semi final results show was a tense one, so thankfully it started on a rather light note.

There are four acts remaining in the competition and all of them are desperately hoping that they will avoid elimination tonight, so they can perform in the final next weekend.

The final will be staged in Wembley Arena and special guests include One Direction, Katy Perry, The Killers, Elton John and Tom Odell so we can see why they’d want to be there.

Luke Friend had admitted that he doesn’t feel like a star or a celebrity, despite his newfound fame through the X Factor.

The 17 year old singer took to the stage last night and won high praise from the judges for his amazing rendition of Elton John’s Something About the Way You Look Tonight and Beyonce’s The Best Thing I Never Had and it’s fair to say that he gave the semi final everything he had and more.

Nicole Scherzinger has lost all her X Factor acts, so it looks like she won’t be getting to perform on the X Factor final.

Last year the Pussycat Doll sang twice, once with her boy Jahmene Douglas and again with eventual winner James Arthur, but after her final contestant Tamera Foster got the boot last week, the chances of her taking to the stage next Saturday were slashed.

X Factor 2013: Sooo, who’s leaving tonight? Rough Copy, Sam Bailey, Nicholas McDonald or Luke Friend?!

x factor semi finalists

Last night’s X Factor semi-finals saw the remaining singers Rough Copy, Sam Bailey, Nicholas McDonald and Luke Friend battling to make their performances their best yet, because of course, the three acts who survive tonight’s vote off will be in the final next weekend.

But the big question is, who will go?

I have to say, I don’t want any of them to leave, but I suspect that Nicholas McDonald may be at risk of leaving the contest, only because his first performance last night – of Beyonce’s hit Halo – did not go well… Read on »

Luke Friend returned to the X Factor stage tonight, and took on a rather unusual song for the penultimate performance show.

The 17 year old received rave reviews for his performances last Saturday, with the judges all raving about his authentic and varied song choices and his perfect delivery. However the singer still landed in the bottom two, so he came back fighting to avoid the same fate this weekend.
