Welsh X-Factor contestant Lloyd Macey was voted out of the competition in last night’s semi-finals.

The 23 year old from the Rhondda was voted off with The Cutkelvins in Sunday night’s show as Rak-Su, Grace Davies and Kevin Davy White progressed through to next weekend’s finals.

The singer supported girl band Little Mix in the week after winning the prize fight challenge earlier in the competition. He battled throat problems in the weekend’s shows covering Coldplay’s classic Fix you.

Macey, who was in Louis Walsh's Boys category, thanked everyone behind the scenes, saying the entire X Factor team was "amazing".

Judges Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Cowell each have an act in the final, with just Walsh having lost all of his hopefuls.
