Elk Grove's Daryl Black Eliminated from 'X Factor' (Video)

The local singer was cut from the Fox reality show this week.

For instant updates, follow Elk Grove Patch on Facebook and Twitter.

Elk Grove resident Daryl Black didn't make the cut on but he's staying positive.

"Don't feel bad for me," Black said in a video posted on YouTube shortly after the show aired. "I am so grateful for the opportunity that I've had to be on this show. ... The reality is some of you wouldn't even know who I am if it wasn't for X Factor."

On Wednesday night's episode of the singing reality show, judge L.A. Reid told Black that while he admired his talent, he "struggle[d] because I want the fire, I want the stardom."

"This is where it stops," Reid said. "Sorry."

Black's rendition of "Stereo Hearts" by Gym Class Heroes, which first earned him a spot on the show, is currently available on iTunes.

I'm not sure how you got this information because the rest of us saw a rerun on Wednesday and X-Facors website said that it wasnt aired because of a baseball rain delay and that the results would be postponed until next Wednesday....so thanks for the spoiler alert!!!

I think LA Reid has something up his sleeve. I have a feeling he wants him for his own. Hopefully I'm right. If not someone will he's to great of a singer
