Giovanni Spano and Misunderstood have been eliminated from "The X Factor".

The 33-year-old singer has seen his dream of winning the ITV show come to an early end after he was defeated in the dreaded sing-off by Acacia and Aaliyah.

Ultimately, the fate of the two acts was sealed by Simon Cowell, who chose to save Acacia and Aaliyah rather than retain Giovanni for another week.

Giovanni responded to the disappointing news by saying how much he'd enjoyed his time on "The X Factor", while he also pledged he would continue to follow his dreams.

Earlier in the night, the much-fancied duo of Misunderstood were also eliminated from the competition.

Following their exit, Misunderstood - which consists of friends Stephan Benson and Jeffery Okyere - thanked their mentor Robbie Williams for his support, and also promised to continue to pursue their own musical ambitions.

Dermot O'Leary, the show's host, was shocked by the news of their exit, admitting: "Wow. No-one was expecting that."

And Nile Rodgers - who was standing in for Robbie this week - was similarly surprised by Misunderstood's early elimination.

Nile said: "They're amazing - I'm honestly like blown away."

Meanwhile, fellow judge Ayda Field admitted to being nervous about having to reveal the news to Robbie, her husband.

She shared: "I mean, no-one was expecting that. It's going to be a really awkward Skype chat."
