It’s down to the final three on the inaugural season of The X Factor.
Fan favorite Marcus Canty was eliminated from the hit Fox talent competition Thursday night, and RadarOnline.com has the clip of his emotional exit.
In his final words, Canty declared “This is not the last time you’ll see Marcus Canty!” He also did a shout out to his higher power, saying: “God has blessed me so much being on this competition.” He then thanked his supporters and family and told them not to cry.
The stage is now set for next week’s season finale, in which the three remaining contestants, Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene, square off for the grand prize – a staggering $5 million record deal with Sony Music and Simon Cowell; it’s the largest prize in television history.
The X Factor returns next Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
