Tonight’s X Factor show was a very tense affair indeed, after Simon Cowell sprung it on the remaining seven acts that one of them would be going home this evening.

Tonight’s show saw the last of the contestants taking to the stage to sing songs by Elton John and Whitney Houston and after they got the chance to showcase their vocal and performing skills, Dermot O’Leary returned to reveal who had received the lowest amount of public votes and would therefore be leaving the competition. There were no second chances, no save me songs and no judges saves tonight!

X Factor’s Alexandra Burke helps Andrea Faustini with AMAZING I Have Nothing VIDEO

X Factor 2014 - Andrea Faustini

Andrea Faustini returned to the X Factor stage tonight and what a performance the Italian stallion put on!

When we heard that the theme for tonight’s ITV show would be Whitney Houston and Elton John, we knew Andrea would be a natural fit. Let’s face it, he’s more or less made a career out of belting out Whitney style ballads ever since he first auditioned for the series.

Ben Haenow took on the massive Whitney Houston ballad I Will Always Love You on tonight’s X Factor show….he is a brave man!

Lauren Platt took on a massive Whitney Houston song tonight on The X Factor and she took quit a risk with her choice.
