Anton Stephans proved he wasn't going out without a bang, after he was voted out of the talent show on the weekend.

And the singer wasn't too impressed with judge Nick Grimshaw, who branded his performance fake, adding:

"I just wasn't feeling that. That wasn’t the best track for you. It’s a very emotional song and it felt cold. It seemed fake."

In an interview with Yahoo Celebrity about Nick's feedback, Anton said:

"That was actually very challenging for me, my first thought was “how dare you?” I’m not going to allow anyone to do that, especially someone who… The other judges have experience with performing or at least nurturing and bringing us worldwide popstars, they don’t just play music on the radio and have famous friends."

He added:

"I think to talk about it is one thing but to do it is another, so if you’re going to talk about me standing on stage and doing something not real then why don’t you stand on stage".

Anton later went on a Twitter rant..

But he soon calmed down and thanked Simon Cowell for his time on the X Factor.
