Carmelo exits as top eight go ’80s
Carmelo Munzone (pictured) has been eliminated from Channel 7’s TV talent show The X Factor. Munzone, a Top 24 favourite, replaced Mel B’s Under 25 boys contestant Josh Brookes when he was disqualified. ‘‘Amazing. I was so lucky to be given a second chance and have loved every minute,’’ he said. The top eight contestants return on Monday (7.30pm, Seven, Prime7) with their take on the 1980s soundtrack, joined by special guests Reece Mastin, R+B star Jay Sean and worldwide phenomenon Psy performing his smash hit, Gangnam Style.
