Watch: Is this the most ridiculous X Factor reaction ever?

We expect anyone who makes the X Factor Top 12 to be a little overwhelmed, but this is just ridiculous.

X Factor UK hopeful Rylan Clark matched the theatrics of his auditions with a two minute-long reaction to the news that he'd been selected in Nicole Scherzinger's final three.

Over those two minutes, Rylan wailed uncontrollably, crouched on the floor, gasped for air, embraced Nicole, sat on the couch and wiped his eyes with an expensive-looking cushion — all while mumbling incoherently!

It's a bittersweet moment for Rylan, with Joseph Whelan, a contestant who didn't make the cut, slamming the producers' decision to pick the 23-year-old ex-model over him.

"Rylan has a great look and great personality — but the man can't sing!" Joseph told The Sun.
