Olatunji Yearwood and Armstrong Martins Become The First Two Contestants To Leave ‘The X Factor’

With the first week of the Live Shows stage of the competition on ‘The X Factor’ now complete, contestants Olatunji Yearwood and Armstrong Martins have become the first two contestants to be eliminated from the competition.

The theme of the first Live Show was ‘This Is Me,’allowing contestants to express their individuality, in a bid to impress Judges – Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Field-Williams and Robbie Williams – and the nation.

On Saturday night, Olatunji Yearwood took to the stage to perform his catchy original ‘Jiggle It’ – but unfortunately, it failed to impress the audience, as he didn’t have the opportunity to fight for his place in the competition, as he was voted out of the competition immediately.

From his first audition, Olatunji brought a special energy to the show, with his unique sound and impressed with his originals. During his time in the competition, he was mentored by Judge Ayda Field-Williams.

The second act to be eliminated from the competition was Armstrong Martins, who was in the Boys Category and mentored by Louis Tomlinson. On the first Live Show, he performed ‘Story Of My Life’ by One Direction, with an original impressive rap.

In the sing-off, whereby he was up against Janice Robinson from the Overs Category, Armstrong Martins performed a rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colours.’

Unfortunately, his performance wasn’t enough to secure him a place in the competition and he was voted out of the competition.

On Sunday’s Live Show, Keala Settle performed ‘This Is Me’ from movie phenomenon ‘The Greatest Showman’ and reigning ‘X Factor’ winners Rak-Su took to the stage to perform their new single ‘I Want You To Freak.’

We’re sorry to see Olatunji Yearwood and Armstrong Martins leave the competition!

‘The X Factor’ continues on Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
