  Darius out of Pop Idol
Updated 03 February 2002, 10.47
Will and Gareth
Darius Danesh has been voted off Pop Idol.

The 22-year-old Scottish student sang the Toploader hit, Dancing in the Moonlight, and Walker Brothers classic Make It Easy on Yourself.

Gareth Gates and Will Young will now battle it out in the grand final.

A staggering 5.8m people voted on Saturday night.

Gareth and Will got 39.8% and 39.3% respectively of the vote.

But Gareth remains the favourite to win.

'Not over'

But after the disappointing news, Darius said: "This is not the end. This is just the beginning."

Darius wasn't expected to get as far as the semi-final after earning a reputation for being arrogant.

And he'd already been voted off Popstars.

Gareth and Will must now campaign to win the public's vote for a week.

The final is on 9 February.
