Nicolo Festa won the booby prized of X Factor 2010 by being the first act to leave the competition.

Commenting that he ‘felt like crap’ to be the first elimination, Nicolo was supported by his mentor Dannii Minogue, who said that she felt he ‘sang fantastically’.

Nicolo had received some bad press, with allegations that he was a self-obsessed diva.

About the finalists: Nicolo Festa

Nicolo FestaNicolo Festa is X Factor 2010′s answer to Rhydian Roberts. Clearly a bit of a diva, Nicolo claimed “I’ve wanted to do this ever since I was in the womb.”.

Described by Simon as ‘kind of out there’, it seems unlikely that Nicolo will replicate the success Rhydian had, with 2010 seemingly a much stronger year than 2007.
