Lucie Jones has become the fifth contestant to be booted out of The X Factor. The singer lost out after a sing-off with twins John and Edward Grimes.
The deciding vote was once again left with Simon Cowell, who refused to kick the twins off. This comes just weeks after he said that he would leave the country if they won the show.
Instead, the fate of the twins and the singer was decided by the public vote.
John and Edward Grimes, referred to by the media as 'Jedward', have divided public opinion with critics saying that while they draw in record crowds, they simply can't sing well enough to justify their place on a talent show.
Saturday night's show was movie themed, seeing the twins sing the 'Ghostbusters' theme while Jones performed 'This Is Me', from 'Camp Rock'.
In the sing-off on Sunday night's results show, the twins sang Robbie Williams' 'Rock DJ' while Jones sang Whitney Houston's 'One Moment In Time'.
The double act's mentor Louis Walsh vowed to keep the duo in the competition while Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole cast their vote for 18-year-old Jones.
Left with the deciding vote, Cowell said: "I think, Lucie, my problem has been with you that I believe there's a ceiling and, with John and Edward, we've had some horrific performances.
"Having said that, who would I rather see again? I'd probably rather see the boys."
He added: "I'm going to let the public decide."
After being voted off, Jones said: "I'm gutted but the boys deserve to be here - they work harder than anyone."
The Sunday night results show attracted the biggest X Factor audience so far this series, with 14.4m tuning in.
