For X Factor fans everywhere, Olly Murs' elimination blunder last night on live TV was equal parts disappointing and entertaining. The Dear Darlin' singer announced that contestant Monica Michael would be out of the competition prior to even viewing the the envelope with the final result inside.
Olly's co-host Caroline Flack attempted a quick save by interjecting; "No Olly, she's not- no. No, we're going to deadlock. Judges, we're going to deadlock," but unfortunately for Olly and The X Factor, the damage had already been done.
Sadly for Monica, Olly's "prediction" came true and she was indeed sent home. After the show, Olly Tweeted; "I apologise to everyone tonightI made a massive f%#k up at the end. It was so tense!! I'm still learning & hope that never happens again!"
Many took to Twitter to voice their amusement and displeasure; "#xfactor ollie murs proves proves its a #fix", "Olly Murs just lost his career on live TV #XFactor", "Ollie Murs will be handing the mic back to Dermot O'Leary next week then."
