X Factor 2011: Matt Cardle says Tulisa was wrong to axe 2 Shoes

Matt Cardle

Former X Factor winner Matt Cardle has hit out at Tulisa's decision to axe 2 Shoes from the show. Last night saw the judges each forced to axe one of the four remaining contestants from their category, with the Essex duo getting the chop from the Groups.

But Matt - who also originates from Essex - said the decision was a wrong one.

Asked on Xtra Factor if he thought Tulisa made the right choice, he said: “I don’t think so no, I think they did a great performance last night.

"We’ve heard them in judges houses they’ve both got amazing voice so for that reason, no I don’t think they should have gone.”

On who should have left, Cardle added: “I thought The Risk were amazing last night and Rhythmix, I thought Nu Vibe struggled slightly.”

Amelia Lily, James Michael and Jonjo Kerr all also left on last night's show.
