X Factor USA 2011: Stacy Francis voted off

Stacy Francis is the latest contestant to be voted of X Factor USA.

This week’s X Factor live show saw the remaining 10 acts tackling Rock songs.

Stacy Francis and Astro were in the bottom two and had to sing again for their survival.

Stacy sang Amazing Grace, while Astro eventually performed a rendition of Never Can Say Goodbye.

The 15-year-old almost refused to perform, saying: “I really don’t want to perform, I feel it’s unnecessary.”

He then demanded mentor L.A. Reid to instruct him on whether to perform or not: “LA, I’m going to leave it up to you, you’re my mentor. Should I perform?”

LA instructed him to sing and voted to send Stacy home.

Nicole couldn’t decide who to vote for, but ultimately sends home Astro.

Paula tells them they are both talented and sends home Stacy.

Simon, once again has the deciding vote and tells Astro he doesn’t like his attitude. Astro says he doesn’t want to perform for people who have put him in the bottom two. He sends Stacy home.

Next week, the remaining nine X Factor USA contestants will face a double elimination..

The act with the fewest votes will leave the competition straight away, while the next two acts with the fewest votes will have to sing again in the sing-off for the judges vote..

The X Factor continues on Fox on Tuesday 22nd November, with the results of the double elimination the next night.

UK viewers can catch both shows on ITV2 on Thursday and Friday night.
