The dreams of Irish X Factor hopeful Joseph McCaul were left in tatters tonight.

However mentor Simon Cowell later swapped him for one of the other contestants in a dramatic turn of events.

Another memorable moment of the evening was when Anton Stephans gave an impassioned speech as to why the music mogul should give him a chance.

However the performance of the night would have to go to Jennifer Phillips who sang Up To The Mountain by Patty Griffin.

This led to yet another swap by Simon who seemed to be heavily influenced by the audience.
