Jack Walton was eliminated on Saturday night's 'X Factor' (01.11.14).
The 18-year-old hopeful was kicked off the show at the end of last night's Halloween-themed Fright Night programme following a performance of Leona Lewis' classic single 'Bleeding Love'.
Talking about his experience on the ITV show, he said: "It's been absolutely amazing: a world away from what I'm used to and I've just loved it."
Despite receiving positive comments from his mentor, former Spice Girl Mel B, the Yorkshire lad was slammed by the other judges, with Louis Walsh branding him a "small room performer."
Fans of the hunk have been left devastated by the result of the public vote, with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson tweeting his disappointment at the outcome.
He wrote: "What a f**king joke
"Gutted . Don't think he was given a fair chance with his songs . #xfactor (sic)"
The wannabe singer is one of two contestants being forced to leave the talent competition this weekend, with another of his fellow stars set to be voted off in Sunday evening's results show (02.11.14), which will also see performances from judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and 35-year-old crooner, John Legend.
