    In a TV show , seven professional singers compete and one singer who gest the lowest votes from the audience members is replaced with another singer. In such case can I say as follows?

    XX will be knocked ouf of the competition.
    XX will be booted out of the competition.
    XX will be eliminated from the competition.
    XX will be replaced with another singer.

    Default Re: be kicked out of competition

    All your options sound OK to me except for the first. It should be

    XX will be kicked out of the competition.

    If you say "XX will be kicked out of the next round." it implies that XX will be back in the round after that. Since I assume there is only one competition, XX can't really be kicked out of the next competition.


    Also, you had a typo in

    XX will be knocked out of the competition.
