Following Mason Noise’s exit last night it was time to find out who the next contestant was to leave the X Factor. The judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora were all there ready to support their respective contestants.

In the bottom two this weekend were both Che Chesterman, who sang Yesterday by The Beatles last night and failed to impress the public but did strike all the right cords with the judges. Also in the bottom two was Anton Stephans who opted to sing One Sweet Day and again we didn’t feel impressed by the performance and the judges were not too sure either. Nick said that he was putting an act and both female judges thought that the performance lacked emotion.

Che Chesterman chose to perform Alecia Keys’ power ballad If I Ain’t Got You. We thought that Che’s vocals were on point but the young singer seemed really nervous during his rendition of the song and this seemed to lead to him scream a little at the end.

Anton Stephans also opted for a ballad, I Can’t Make You Love Me. Anton started off off-key and unfortunately didn’t manage to come back from this. We thought his performance was emotional but lacked in parts.

Nick Grimshaw said that Anton sounded great but had to stick by his contestant Che. Simon also stuck to his contestant, Anton, whom he said made him really emotional. Rita said that even though Anton had come out of his shell there was no comparison and that Che had to stay on. Cheryl also said that she liked Anton but couldn’t let Che go. This meant that Anton Stephans was the latest contestant to leave the competition.

Anton impressed the judges and the public throughout the competition with solid vocals and charisma but seemed to lose himself during the live shows. This is not the end of the road for Anton Stephans who will be taking part in The X Factor live tour.

The X Factor returns next Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
