It was a double elimination on The X Factor Australia last night, where we said goodbye to Georgia Denton and Jimmy Davis.
Georgia, who was mentored by Dannii Minogue, was the first to be eliminated, saying of her time in the competition – “I just want to thank everybody, Dannii especially,” she said. “I’m so grateful to have gotten this far. I didn’t think I would make it past my first audition.”
Mahalia Simpson, who was in the bottom three with Georgia and Jimmy, was chosen over rocker Jimmy and he was then eliminated.
He was a shock exit from the show, as he was a favourite to win from the start as he had a different feel to the rest of the contestants.
“This whole thing has been really interesting,” Jimmy said. “You come in as a musician and you are hoping to do as much as you possibly can and sometimes you don’t get to do that but when you do, oh my god. If you’re coming in to this thing and you are an independent artist just try your best to stay who you are.”
