He’s still the runaway favourite to win this year’s show, but it seems that it’s all become a bit too much for poor old Andrea Faustini.
The X Factor star reportedly broke down in tears after Sunday’s result show due to the fact that he had no friends and family in the audience to celebrate with.
AWWW – SO SAD!
A show insider told The Sun: “Despite going through, after the show Andrea was distraught, sobbing in a corner of the studio.”
SOBBING IN A CORNER?! WE CANNOT COPE WITH THIS!
They added: “Emotions were obviously running high and family and friends are so important on a show like this. So he was painfully aware he didn’t have anyone there.
“It’s no reflection on him personally because he’s a lovely guy, just the fact he hasn’t been in this country very long.”
OH JESUS, THIS IS TOO MUCH.
Apparently Andrea’s parents DID fly in from Italy for his performance of Michael Jackson’s Earth Song on Saturday night’s show but had to jet back before the results.
The pug-loving star was feeling homesick but reportedly opened up to his fellow contestants that he couldn’t afford the flights back home too see his family.
OH GOD, STOP.
But it seems that his fellow wannabe stars all clubbed together, donating £10 each, so that Andrea could book a flight back to his home-country.
The insider added: “It was a lovely gesture and proves how much they all like him.”
So many emotions… now WE’RE sobbing in the corner of the Yahoo offices. THANKS X FACTOR.
