X Factor contestant Altiyan Childs went AWOL this week after his killer performance on Sunday night. He sang U2’s "Beautiful Day" and received an overwhelmingly positive response...and then he went missing. He didn’t show up for a rehearsal Tuesday morning with mentor Ronan Keating, which sent X Factor peeps into panic mode. He explained his bizarre disappearance saying that he needed to reconnect with “beautiful sadness” in a cave in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The cave is significant because it was a special place he shared with his former fiancée. Their engagement ended NINE YEARS AGO, but Altiyan is still grieving the split and has been celibate ever since. He said he didn’t answer calls because he fell asleep and his phone died. Altiyan spoke with Jackie O and guest host Ronan Keating on 2Day FM this morning and was feeling very remorseful. What do you think about Altiyan’s meltdown? Is he too unstable to be on the show?
