Rachel Adedeji has become the first girl to be voted off ITV talent show The X Factor.
The decision was not without controversy - head judge Simon Cowell admitted that Adedeji sang far better than Lloyd Daniels, who was suffering from a sore throat, but used his vote to create a tie which meant her fate hung on the voting public.
Cowell said that despite her performance, he couldn't ignore her lack of popularity with the public.
When she was told she was leaving the show, a teary-eyed Adedeji said: "Thank you to everyone who has supported me
"It's been amazing and I got to meet so many lovely people and work with great judges."
She told her mentor Dannii Minogue: "You're amazing."
Meanwhile the unlikely X Factor favourites John and Edward Grimes were sent through to the next round, despite having been treated at a Harley Street clinic for sore throats themselves.
The 18-year-old twins have built up a massive following despite their sometimes shambolic performances. It has meant that they have yet to face the judges' vote much to the annoyance of Cowell.
Cowell has said that he will be on "the fastest plane out of the UK" if the twins win the show.
