Vegas gig for Lincs musician who narrowly missed X Factor dream
A Lincolnshire musician who narrowly missed out on X Factor stardom in controversial circumstances is to play gigs in Toronto and Las Vegas.
Hugh Maynard, one-sixth of vocal rock group Tenors of Rock, was booted off the show last month despite the band being told they had already made it through to the next stage of the ITV competition.
Judge Gary Barlow had instead chosen to replace them with a new girl-band which had only just been formed during earlier rounds of the show.
But Ruskington resident Hugh, 38, is still set for success after the group announced international and UK tour dates for the rest of the year on their website.

On Friday November 1, they will be appearing in Toronto for a half-time performance at an American football match between Canadian sides the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes.
And the following day they will make a whistle-stop journey across the US border to perform at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Singer Hugh has previously lived in the US, having spent time in Miami before a serious injury forced him to return to Ruskington, near Sleaford, for his rehabilitation.
Tenors of Rock have also released a single since leaving X Factor called 'Knights of Cydonia' which can now be downloaded from iTunes.
