Jimmy Davis and Georgia Denton eliminated from The X Factor

COORAN's Jimmy Davis and Melbourne teen Georgia Denton were eliminated from The X Factor tonight.

While Denton has been in the bottom two before, it was the first time Davis has faced elimination on the reality singing show.

Davis dedicated his final performance of Elton John's Rocket Man on the show to his mum, and biggest supporter, Robyn.

"If you're coming into the this thing as an independent artist try to stay true to who you are," Davis said.

His mentor Chris Isaak added: "I'm hoping when Jimmy is playing in arenas, he remembers me."

Guy Sebastian cast the deciding vote in Davis's elimination, choosing to give Brisbane-based Kiwi jazz singer Mahalia Simpson another chance.

"I feel like you've kind of been scattered all over the place," Sebastian said.

"Last night... wasn't a home run but it was on the right path."

Denton's mentor Dannii Minogue came under fire last night for her song choices for the teen, while 22-year-old Davis was praised for going back to basics with his acoustic rendition of The Killers' When You Were Young.

Fans of the "ranga rocker" took to social media to express their disappointment with his elimination.

 

 

Davis hopes to record more of his own music and become a touring artist, playing at music festivals including The Woodford Folk Festival.
