Rylan Clark makes it through to next round of X-Factor
STANFORD-Le-Hope's Rylan Clark has made it through to the second week of live X-Factor shows in controversial style.
Judge Gary Barlow stormed off the show's set on Sunday night as Dermot O'Leary revealed that Carolynne Poole, the act Barlow was mentoring, had polled bottom in the public vote, saving Rylan.
Rylan, 23, who is mentored by judge Nicol Scherzinger was in the bottom two of the public vote and performed a version of "One Night Only" to keep himself in the competition. Carolynne performed afterwards.
Barlow called the decision an "easy one", after Scherzinger voted to keep her act in the competition.
Fellow judge Tulisa Contostavlos voted for Carolynne to stay, before an indecisive Louis Walsh, the final judge was hounded for an answer by host O'Leary. Rylan's fate would have been sealed had Walsh voted for him to go home.
He decided that he wanted it to go to dead-lock, meaning the act who came bottom of the public vote would be out, so voted to save Rylan.
O'Leary then revealed that Carolynne had come bottom in the public vote.
After hearing the decision, an angry looking Barlow stormed off as boos rang around the X-Factor studio.
On Saturday night, Barlow said he was "embarrassed to be sitting here" after watching Rylan's eccentric performance of Spandau Ballet classic "Gold".
Rylan will now be performing on next week's second live show with the remaining 11 acts.
