X Factor winner 2009 Joe McElderry has reportedly been dropped by his record label after failing to sell enough records.

Reports in the Daily Mail, claim that Simon Cowell's SyCo record label have decided to cut their losses after Joe's slow start in the music industry.

A source told the paper: "Joe is devastated. His mum has been comforting him. He believed he could have a great music career."

Adding: "Although he is still on SyCo's books, his deal runs out in about a month and it won't be renewed."

"Joe's a lovely boy and it is a pity it did not work out, but no one can say Simon and his staff did not try to make it work." said a record label source before adding,

"Simon gave Joe the best chance possible of success by making sure he worked with some of the world's top producers."

If these reports prove correct, are you sad to see Joe go? We can't help thinking the pop world was not for him and that he could have a great career in the West End if he chooses to.
