Tom Batchelor Eliminated from the X Factor NZ

Tom Batchelor was tonight eliminated from The X Factor NZ, leaving six acts still in the competition; Benny Tipene, Whenua Patuwai, Cassie Henderson, Jackie Thomas, Gap 5, and Moorhouse.

Sunday’s Performance Show saw the remaining seven acts perform movie themes.  Tom Batchelor and Benny Tipene (both mentored by Ruby Frost) received the lowest number of public votes and tonight sang for their survival in front of the judges.

Tom sang Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and was sent home by the judges, with Ruby abstaining from voting.

Tonight Tom said:  “I got to go out on a high, playing a Zeppelin song.  I’m a happy man.”

Mentor Ruby Frost said:  “I’m going to miss Tom so much.  He has music in his veins, and one of the best voices in the competition.  I just can’t believe how volatile the voting can be – you never know what to expect!”

Ruby Frost, Melanie Blatt and Daniel Bedingfield each have two acts still in the running for The X Factor NZ crown.  Fellow judge Stan Walker has no acts left in the competition.

The remaining six acts will take the stage at 7pm, on Sunday 30 June, and sing to stay in the competition in the next LIVE Performance Show.
