X Factor’s Stevi Ritchie voted out – the Twitter reaction

Stevi Ritchie loses the sing-off to Andrea Faustini in this weekend's second elimination. Here's how the result went down on Twitter...

The bundle of dancing energy that is Stevi Ritchie was voted out of the X Factor during tonight’s results show. He’s the second act of the weekend to go, with Louis Walsh’s group Only The Young voted out last night. 


It’s safe to say Stevi has earned plenty of fans. His decision to sing ‘I’m Still Standing’ last night a nod to the fact that even he’s been surprised by how long he’s been kept in. But there’s also been a fair chunk of criticism coming his way, as acts like Paul Akister and Jay James, with better vocal abilities, were sent home while he stuck around.

From that Queen performance to last night’s feather-filled Elton John rendition, Stevi’s certainly kept us guessing. But tonight he just couldn’t see off the power of Italian crooner Andrea Faustini. 

Here’s how the result went down on Twitter…

Boy band Stereo Kicks were quick to say how much he’ll be missed

Plus his “brother” in the competition Jay James tweeted to say how sad he was to hear the news

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams just wanted Stevi away from Simon Cowell

There was sadness

Panic of what it’d be like without him

Others were, well, not quite so upset

Some were just being “honest”

Elsewhere young fans were devastated

Others were being diplomatic

There were some “terrible” thoughts


While others are just hoping for a meal at the Harvester…
