X Factor 2012 results: Who left? MK1 eliminated

MK1 (X Factor 2012)

MK1 have become the third person to be eliminated from The X Factor 2012 in tonight's results show.

Last night saw the remaining eleven X Factor finalists perform live for the third time, singing songs with a Club Classics theme.

This evening, Dermot O'Leary revealed that MK1 and Kye Sones had received the fewest public votes and would have to sing again.

In the sing off, MK1 performed The Script's The Man Who Can't Be Moved while Kye performed I Can't Make You Love Me.

It was then over to the judges to decide which acts to save.

Both Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh stuck by their own acts, leaving Nicole and Tulisa to decide who would remain in the competition.

Nicole said: "This is really hard, I'm such big fans of MK1, I love how fresh they are, but I've got to go off the save me song so the act I'm sending home is MK1.

With the casting vote, Tulisa said: "MK1 from the second I saw you, you touch a soft spot for me. Kye, that was an amazing performance, but if I don't stick up for my urban roots I'll be lying to myself, and so the act I'm sending home is Kye."

With the judges' votes tied, it was over to deadlock for the third week in the row.

With the fewest votes, MK1 lost out in the public vote and was eliminated.

The X Factor 2012 UK continues next Saturday and Sunday on ITV1.
