Stephanie Beeby and Princess Diamond left the ‘X Factor’ on Sunday night, after separately forgetting their words during the first bootcamp challenge.
The hopefuls were set a group task and had to work with singers from other categories, and the pressure got too much for 17-year-old Stephanie.
During her group’s otherwise successful rendition of Tina Turner’s ‘Proud Mary’, Stephanie broke down in tears when it came to her line.
Speaking to the judges after, she explained: “I got confused with the timing.
“I know I can sing, that’s the thing.”
The judges took just minutes to decide on Stephanie’s fate, and proved that they’re not messing around this year by calling time in her stint in the competition.
As a tearful Stephanie made her way off the stage, Nick Grimshaw got up to give her a hug, and encouraged the youngster to return to the competition next year.
Princess Diamond suffered a similar fate - though made a louder exit - after forgetting the lines to Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’.
Princess’s group included Monica Michael, who was at first asked to step forward along with Princess.
