Mason Noise didn't sing Sorry to apologise for dropping microphone on X Factor

Mason Noise was - arguably - this year's most interesting X Factor contestant.

But the singer has now left the competition after getting the fewest number of votes during Saturday night's show.

He's now told Newsbeat that you "don't need to win" the show and that he's "relieved" to be off it.

"I was happy each week I was there, performing on stage for millions of people. I wasn't in it to win."
