X Factor 2012 1st Results: Who left? Gary Barlow storms off as Carolynne Poole loses to Rylan Clark
The X Factor first results show literally just aired and after only one performance and one live show, already an act has been eliminated from the ITV series.
BBC bosses had the heart to allow their Strictly Come Dancing contestants to perform twice this year, before sending one of their celebs home but ITV producers are not that kind and after offering a lifeline to wildcard contestant Christopher Maloney last night, tonight they destroyed the dreams of one other act.
Bookies have been tipping MK1 to leave all week, however today they changed their odds somewhat, making fellow Team Louis group District 3 their odds on favourite to go home, followed by MK1 and then by Union J and Carolynne Poole.
Revealing the results this evening, Dermot O’Leary caused shock around the nation when he confirmed that all three groups had won enough votes to make it through to next week’s show, while Carolynne Poole and Rylan Clark had polled the lowest support and would be competing in the sing off.
Rylan was first up to the stage, singing ‘One Night Only’ as his save me song. It was pretty dire and if he wanted to showcase his vocals then this was not the song for Clark. We were sure that not even Katie Price could save him after that tuneless performance. Nicole clapped and cheered along throughout the track, but Gary Barlow looked secretly content in the knowledge that Carolynne should easily beat the Essex hopeful. If only he knew…..
Next up was Poole and she took on Faith Hill’s ‘There You’ll Be’ as her last ditch attempt to remain in the competition. It was a competent and strong performance and while the song choice was predictable, we thought Caz did it justice and more.
She looked pretty amazing too in her figure hugging black mini dress and dark smoky eye makeup. Perhaps if she had been styled like this last night, she would have won more votes.
TULISA: I love Rylan as a performer and entertainer, with Carolynne she has an amazing voice. I have to base it on that performance and it hurts me to say it but I have to send home Rylan.
NICOLE: Carolynne you are a beautiful and effortless singer but I have to stick with my boy.
GARY: Carolynne thank God you got to sing like that, this makes it easy for all the judges. Rylan I’m glad you learned the truth that if you pull the mic away we cant hear you singing.
LOUIS: Carolynne I love country music and what you bring to the competition. It’s so hard….I want to save Carolyne….no I want to send it to deadlock.
It was all very confusing and we’re pretty sure that Louis didn’t know who he was saving, but as it did eventually go to deadlock, Dermot revealed that the act with the fewest votes was Carolynne and she was leaving the competition.
Gary Barlow stormed off when he heard the news and we are patiently awaiting the uproar!
