18 year old Queensland lifesaver Adil Memon has become the first finalist eliminated from The X Factor for 2012.
As one of Mel B’s Under 25 Boys, he was cut by the judges over singer Samantha Jade, who was also in the bottom two.
Despite the show making much of his physique, Memon didn’t attract enough votes from fans for his singing.
Last night he was unable to hold back the tears on stage, but later said, “I had the best experiences and made some life long friends here.”
“I think it is such a shame, its devastating,” Mel B added.
Next week, the show airs Tuesday and Wednesday nights due to Seven’s coverage of the Brownlow Medal.
