Rough Copy lost out when the sing-off ended in deadlock

I love Rough Copy.

They sooooo should have been in The X Factor final.

I’m a Luke Friend fan, too, so was torn during the sing-off tonight.

It was definitely Nicholas McDonald‘s time to go home.

(He’s a sweet boy but Luke is a very special young star and Rough Copy are fantastic.)

I can only presume that Nicholas keeps getting through because the whole of Scotland is voting for him simply for being Scottish, not because he’s the most outstanding contestant.

Just like Scotland voted for Jai MacDowall on Britain’s Got Talent 2011 – and look what happened to him.

Rough Copy’s Sterling sobbed even more than Joey and Kaz after their final performance and the trio were right to feel gutted.

These guys have such energy and talent.
