Oh no! This would be such a shame!
X Factor contestants Mary Byrne and Matt Cardle are reportedly both in danger of having to pull out of the competition during the semi-final round because they're both struggling with vocal problems!
A source explains:
"Matt is putting a brave face on things but his voice is in bad shape and he could miss the semi-final. He's really low because he's desperate to be at his best for such a vital show. Mary and Matt have both been struggling with their throats for the past week. Matt was advised to rest his voice by doctors and so he didn't perform. Mary did sing but complained of a bad throat afterwards. At the moment we're hoping they will be fit to appear but we just don't know. It will be a disaster if they have to pull out."
Awful! We seriously hope that these two can take every chance they can until Saturday to get themselves rested!
We wouldn't want to see any have to back down at this point - they've worked so SO hard!
Best of luck, guys! We're thinking of you!

And some of their tour dates have been postponed.
After Art Garfunkel of folk duo Simon & Garfunkel suffered a vocal strain, they had to postpone five of their Canadian dates of their North American tour. Live Nation released a statement:
"In an effort to provide the highest quality performance for their audience, Paul and Art decided it would be best to move the scheduled concert dates. The dates have been rescheduled to allow for an adequate period of rest and rehabilitation, after which Art is expected to make a complete recovery."
The shows in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon and Winnipeg will go on in July.
Get well soon, Art!
