Stereo Kicks voted out of X Factor – the Twitter reaction

Eight-piece boy band Stereo Kicks are the latest act to leave the competition and the mood online is sad

X Factor results shows are getting tougher and tougher as this year’s final looms, and tonight it was boy band Stereo Kicks that were sent home after a sing-off with Lauren Platt. 


The good news is that Ben Haenow, Fleur East, Andrea Faustini and Lauren Platt are through to this year’s semi-final.

But poor judge Louis Walsh has now been left with no acts in the competition, with another deadlock vote sending the eight boys on their way. While Lauren is certainly a popular singer on the show, the mood online after their elimination was one of shock:

Fans were surprised their efforts weren’t enough

TOWIE’s Bobby Norris was shocked to hear the news

Emotions were hard to explain

There were calls for Cowell and Walsh to step up

Past competitors Blonde Electra were quick to congratulate the band

There were tears

Heaps of support flooded in

Last year’s The Apprentice winner Leah wasn’t impressed by the result

The Kicks’ believers are confident there’s more to come

Er, some weren’t as disappointed

But fans are remaining positive


And the band themselves promise this isn’t the end
