Marcus Canty has become the ninth act to be eliminated from the Top 12 of The X Factor USA's first season.

The 20-year-old, who has consistently fallen into the bottom two in recent weeks, was eliminated during Thursday night's live results show after it was revealed that he had scored the lowest number of public votes following Wednesday's semi-final.

"I'm okay, this is not the last you'll see of me, I'm going to keep going. All my family and friends out there crying, stop crying. It's all right!" Canty said following his elimination. "It's not over yet!"

His mentor LA Reid added: "I'm not happy to see you go. I think you're a big star, a great singer and I think you've done great and will continue to do great. You've got my support."

On Wednesday, Canty performed Boyz II Men's 'I'll Make Love To You' as his Pepsi Challenge song, later returning for an uptempo version of George Michael's 'Careless Whisper'.

There was no sing-off during the broadcast. Instead, Canty's elimination was a direct result of the American's public's preference.
