Here’s a look back in pictures of Rylan Clark’s X Factor 2012 journey…
Louis Walsh, Tulisa and Gary Barlow all sent Rylan home with only Rylan's mentor Nicole Scherzinger saving him.
Speaking after his exit, Rylan said: "I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, I feel like I've been just let out of prison... in a good way!
"I'm going to miss Gary with all my heart, he's like the uncle you never wanted!
"Thank you so much to everyone who voted and Nicole, what can I say? If it weren't for her... this woman has changed my life."
