Rikki Loney sang Flying Without Wings in a bid to be saved
Scottish singer Rikki Loney has become the second contestant to be voted off ITV talent show the X Factor.
Rachel Adedeji survived the judges' vote after being left in the bottom two for the second week in a row.
Loney, 21, from Dennistoun, said he had "enjoyed the whole experience" of being on the programme.
His mentor Cheryl Cole, who sang during the show, said she was "gutted" that Loney had to leave while twins John and Edward Grimes remained in the series.
Cole, 26, performed her new single, Fight for This Love, on the live show.
After her performance, Simon Cowell said: "It's really going to pain me to have to say this but that was incredible.
Whitney's wardrobe malfunction
"That was an incredible routine, great performance and unfortunately you're going to be number one next week."
The song, which was released on Sunday evening, is already on top of the iTunes and Amazon download charts.
Cole said: "I feel fantastic, I've really enjoyed myself. It's been a bit of a blur, it took me right back to when I started on Popstars: The Rivals."
Soul singer Whitney Houston also appeared on the show, in her first UK TV appearance for 12 years.
While the performer sang her single Million Dollar Bill, a strap on the back of her long silver dress snapped.
Afterwards the singer joked: "I sang myself out of my clothes."
