X Factor 2012: James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Nathan Fagan-Gayle, Adam Burrdidge, Rylan Clark, Jake Quickenden through to judges houses – Joseph Whelan loses out!
On tonight’s X Factor we saw the judges whittle down more than 70 contestants to just 24.
The remaining hopefuls advanced from bootcamp to judges houses and the first category to be announced was the boys.
After Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa and Louis Walsh deliberated over the lads’ fate, they decided that the six acts they were sending through were James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Starboy Nathan (aka Nathan Fagan-Gayle), Adam Burrdidge, Rylan Clark, Jake Quickenden.
On hearing the news, an elated James admitted:
‘Best feeling of my life’
Jahmene was surprised, as he wasn’t exactly at the top of his game during the first part of bootcamp. He confessed:
“I did not think that would happen, I’m just shocked right now!”
Jake seemed just as surprised to have been chosen and said:
“I nearly had a heart attack. Can I phone my mum?”
Rylan broke down in floods of tears and we could barely make out a word he said as he wept with Dermot backstage.
However dad of one Joseph Whelan was devastated to be going home. He told producers that he was most sad for his young son and said:
“I’m letting my son down, I’ve let everyone down.”
“This is horrible…heartbreaking!”
