X Factor cancels voting after sound issues

It's been a hard weekend for The X Factor after the show's public vote was cancelled for the first time in series history following technical problems.

The words "we are sorry for the temporary interference in sound" flashed up on the screen throughout the rest of the performance.

The understanding is that the performances will be broadcast tonight, with viewers then being able to vote on them rather than each singer having to repeat their performances.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, one fan wrote: "I hate the fact we can't vote tonight".

The sound issues distorted contestants Danny Tetley and Anthony Russell's performances, with viewers confused as to why host Dermot O'Leary didn't call attention to the problems.

An ITV spokeswoman said: "We apologise for the technical issues that affected the sound on part of tonight's episode of the X Factor".

This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield said: "Oh no!"

The X Factor, now in its 15th series, has struggled in the ratings in recent years.

One viewer joked that ex-judge Louis Walsh was "the real culprit" behind the sound issues.

While @flump23 added: "Surely the votes need to be halted".

The act with the fewest votes will leave the contest straight away - while the next two will sing for their survival, with the judges deciding who stays or who goes - and the vote reverting to deadlock if they are unable to decide. "It's not fair on them".

"This follows the sound issues on part of last night's show". We are investigating why this happened.

"We can confirm Saturday's public vote has been cancelled and will instead open in Sunday's show at 8.30pm on ITV".

According to reports, producers have been figuring out a way to air all 12 performances in full again tonight in a bid to ensure the voting process goes ahead fairly after Danny Tetley's performance was ruined by an audio error.
