X Factor viewers are split about 2018’s first elimination

Fans don't agree whether Olatunji Yearwood should have exited the contest so early

The X Factor judges 2018

X Factor viewers are unsure whether Olatunji Yearwood should have been the first act to be eliminated from the 2018 competition.


The 33-year-old singer from Trinidad came bottom of the public vote following his performance of original song Jiggle It on Saturday night.

However, plenty of viewers at home questioned whether the right act went home.

But others thought it was Olatunji’s time to go…

Whether Ola was the right act to be sent home or not, they won’t be the only act to leave The X Factor 2018 tonight. Either Armstrong Martins or Janice Robinson will also be eliminated from the competition after a sing-off where judges Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Louis will decide who stays. Unless their deliberations are sent to deadlock and a public vote, of course…


The X Factor continues 8.35pm Saturday, ITV
