Jay James has been eliminated from 'The X Factor' tonight after the decision went to a public vote.
The former fitness instructor found himself in the sing-off against Stevie Ritchie and was ultimately eliminated from the competition when the judges could not reach a unanimous verdict and he was found to have the fewest votes from the public.
He reflected: "It's been absolutely incredibly, the people that I have met during this time have just been amazing."
Simon Cowell, 55 - the mentor of both acts in the sing-off - added: "Jay, you've been a gentleman, a really nice guy to work with."
During the sing-off, Jay performed 'Somewhere Only We Know' by Keane, while Stevie sang Queen's 'Somebody to Love'.
In the subsequent vote, Simon and Louis Walsh both opted to send Stevie home, with Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini choosing Jay.
That meant the decision went to a public vote, which Stevie won.
Tonight's show also featured the premiere of the Band Aid 30 single, introduced by Bob Geldof, 63, who's been the driving force behind the charity track designed to raise money to fight Ebola.
