Simon Cowell shocks X Factor fans after saying he is ’embarrassed for the show’

Simon Cowell shocked X Factor viewers after telling an act that they made him "embarrassed for the show".

The media mogul delivered the cruel blow tonight but, in another twist, still decided to save them.

Group Misunderstood had been immediately eliminated from the competition after landing bottom of the public vote.

It was then between Acacia and Aaliyah and Gio Spano, who had to battle it out in the sing-off.

After Ayda Field saved Gio and Louis Tomlinson and Nile Rodgers saved the female duo, it was down to Simon.

Viewers were left stunned when Simon told the girls: "Every time I see you I feel embarrassed for the show."

Yet, despite this, chose to save them – meaning that Gio was sent home.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to cringe at the remarks.

One tweeted: "Wow embarrassed for the show #xfactor."

While another commented: ""Everytime I see you I feel embarrassed for the show." But I’ll save you anyway. #xfactor."

A third remarked: "Simon Cowell hit the nail on the head then… he should be embarrassed for the show! Absolutely awful decision… #XFactor."
