X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark’s performance cut from ITV+1 for THESE legal reasons (VIDEO)

Rylan Clark gave a show stopper of a performance on The X Factor tonight, we know this because we watched the show the first time round on ITV1.

However, those people who missed the first airing of the episode, or who waited to see it on ITV+1 because they were busy watching Strictly Come Dancing during the short overlap between the shows, will have been sorely disappointed, as half his appearance was cut out.

Twitter erupted a few minutes ago with fans, asking why the second half of the Essex boy’s performance didn’t air and instead they just got a message apologising and citing ‘legal reasons’ for the change.

Daniel tweeted:

“Just watched xfactor on itv+1 and when rylan was signing it went of, said this can’t be shown for legal reasons Anyone no what happend?”

LP asked:

“What was the “thing” that ITV +1 couldn’t show for legal reasons during Rylan’s performance that was shown on x factor on ITV 1???”

While Damien joked:

“Wish I’d watched #XFactor on ITV+1 because apparently Rylan’s performance was cut off halfway through “for legal reasons””

It turns out that a problem arose because Rylan was supposed to sing ‘gangnam style’ during his performance, but in the heat of the moment he changed it to ‘rylan style’ which was not cleared for use.

An X Factor spokesperson told Unreality TV: “A small part of Rylan’s performance was edited from ITV1+1 due to legal issues.”

    What the fu## is he doing there apart from taking the place of some one decent but saying that he is freakishly entertaining in his funny way, which is probably my guilty pleasure & at the end of xfactor are sneaky fu##s who put him there & are keeping him there cos mugs like us talk about ITV
