    Katie Waissel and Wagner booted out


    by ODN


    A double elimination saw this year's two most controversial contestants, Katie Waissel and Wagner kicked off The X Factor

    Waissel polled the lowest number of public votes and after surviving four sing offs was finally voted off.

    Wagner and Mary Byrne faced the sing off, which was fairly pointless really as the judges were never going to vote to keep the 54-year-old Brazilian in the contest.

    Simon Cowell told Wagner: "I am happy with the decision because there were people out there trying to derail this show for different reasons and tonight we've put this show back in the hands of the public and back in the hands of the talent."

    Wagner currently faces allegations that he bought drugs during his time on the show and invited a drug dealer into the show's studios.
