Nick Grimshaw is shocked that Seann Miley Moore was shown the X Factor exit.

Nick Grimshaw has hit back at X Factor fans who think he should have chosen between two of his acts.

Last night (08Nov15) Nick was faced with a tough decision when two of his boys, Seann Miley Moore and Mason Noise, were pitted against each other in the X Factor sing off. It followed Kiera Weathers' earlier exit in the competition, after she received the lowest votes.

When it came to the sing off, many fans thought Seann was stronger with his rendition of A Song For You by Ray Charles over Mason's version of Boyz II Men's hit End Of The Road. However Nick was unable to choose, taking the decision to deadlock, with Seann ultimately getting the boot.

"That was really tough tonight - there was NO WAY I would choose between any boys, they are my friends and I chose to let the public decide," he tweeted.

"Seann is SUCH a star, so shocked he's gone. but he's leaving with his head high, every performance was 100% him and that's what matters."

Flamboyant Seann was a hit with many TV viewers, wowing with both his song and outfit choices. Lots of his fan base took to social media websites to vent their fury, with one exclaiming: "Mason Noise didn't hit a right note all the way through his song, Sean has star quality but they know they cant sell him so he's out."

Another raged: "@TheXFactor What a total farce.Mason Noise was awful in the sing off.@RitaOra should get her ears cleaned out or hang her head in shame #fix," after Rita opted to save Mason. Fellow judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini gave their vote to Seann.

Seann also took to Twitter, reposting as message from X Factor stylist Gemma Lucy Sheppard.

"I will sooooo miss you @seannmileymoore," followed by a heart emoji.
