X Factor dream over for ‘unforgettable’ Wagner
Dudley’s most-talked about entertainer Wagner has finally been booted off the X Factor after finding himself in the sing-off.
The wacky 54-year-old from Pensnett was given his marching orders by the judges after facing fellow over 28s contestant Mary Byrne in the weekly vote-off.
Wagner smiled his way through what was possibly his most polished performance on the ITV show – a rendition of the appropriately-titled Nat King Cole track ‘Unforgettable’.
But all four judges – Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and even Wagner’s mentor Louis Walsh – opted to send the borough karate instructor home in tonight’s double elimination, which also ended drama queen Katie Waissel’s X Factor dream.
When asked if he had enjoyed himself during his time on the show – Wagner said he had but he’d missed his cat.
The singer had been the focus of a campaign by X Factor detractors who hoped Wagner would go all the way in the show and steal the coveted Christmas number one slot.
