The X Factor UK 2015 Results: Who Went Home In Fifth Place? (VIDEO)

We’re down to the final five on The X Factor UK 2015! We’re just two weeks away from the finale, and the competition is getting down to the wire. Naturally, some of the contestants handled the pressure better than others this week.

Case in point, the unfortunate case of Che Chesterman, who completely forgot the lyrics to “Hello” during his first round performance. However, Che confidently bounced back with his second round performance of Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness”, a soulful vocal that ranked among his best this season. But will it be enough to keep him out of the Bottom 2 for a second straight week? Or will he find himself singing for survival once again? We’re guaranteed to see at least one act have their first sing-off appearance. Which act(s) will it be?

We’ll be updating the post as results come in, along with videos to come as soon as they’re available:

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini: Lauren Murray – backed her own act, 4th Impact
Nick Grimshaw: 4th Impact – based on the sing-off performances
Simon Cowell: Lauren Murray – could not decide so chose to take the vote to deadlock


The results are in…

4th Impact is eliminated from The X Factor UK!

I’m sad to see the girls go. On the one hand, a lot of their performances were starting to blend together. On the other hand, they’re up there with Reggie N Bollie as one of the only acts left in the competition to bring genuine fun and excitement to the show. Their high-energy performances were a highlight, and I thought their sing-off was one of their best performances overall — showing off their powerful, raw vocals in a way the constant dance numbers never did. I think they had way more versatility than they ever had the chance to show. Hopefully, they’ll have a bright career after this.
