Guitar-playing singer just misses out on a place in the final two...
Friend described his experience on the show as "absolutely mental", and said that though many had thought he was the underdog, it had been "amazing" to get to the final weekend.
Mentor Louis Walsh added that Luke was "unique" and told fans to "watch this space", while Luke himself revealed he was "looking forward to getting out there and gigging".
Also performing on the night were guests The Killers, and some of the most memorable X Factor contestants from the last ten years, including Wagner, Jedward and Rylan.
Earlier today it was revealed that the winner of this year's show will join Beyoncé on the UK leg of her world tour.
