16-year-old Luke Lucas was left in tears on tonight's X Factor after a poor performance at judges' houses, his last chance to impress mentor Gary Barlow before the live shows. With just one song between him and the final stage of the competition, Luke forgot the words to Impossible by Shontelle.
After faltering, Gary prompted Luke to have another go, telling him: "You came in early, can we start again?"
But while Luke remembered the words this time, his voice was far from impressive.
"What a shame," remarked Gary's pal Robbie Williams.
"He lost his key, his timing..." moaned Gary.
But there was still hope for Luke, with Robbie saying: "I still hold a bit of a candle for him just because of that first audition..."
Off stage and speaking to Dermot, Luke confessed: "My gut is telling me I've not done enough, I think I’m heading home."
Tune into The X Factor tomorrow night from 7:45PM to see if Luke makes it through...
