One of the judges, Nile Rodgers who was replacing Robbie Williams, stated moved to tears by his performance. Remarkable was the warm and continuous applause coming from the judges and audience at the end of his performance.
After Saturday’s live perfromances, this evening the results from the voting were revealed , according to which two eliminations had to take place. The contestant with the less votes went home directly while the next two contestants with the lowest votes had a sing off and the judges were to determine who they were sending home. In case of a deadlock in the judge’s voting the outcome is determined by the public voting.
Brendan, who is part of the Boy’s team, mentor of which is Louis Tomlinson, former member of One Direction, managed to survive this week’s show too and will be present competing in the 5th week of live shows.
