Whelan performed ‘I’ll Stand by You’ by The Pretenders for Sharon Osbourne and her guest judge Robbie Williams at Judges Houses in LA, in a last attempt to prove to the pair that he deserve a place in the Overs category final three.

The hopeful seems to have struck a chord with the Take That star who loved his rock tones and raspy vocals.

Williams explained:

“I love him a little bit, I do. I just want things to go well for him. I love the rockers voice he does that really well.”

However, the final decision rest with Sharon and the news was not good for Joseph. Sharon told him:

“My darling boy, I know that your heart’s in it, I know that. I think that you have a very distinctive sound, but your vocal range is quite limited.”

She added:

“Joseph darling I know what this means to you but my decision is that you’ll be going home. I am so sorry.”
