Amelia Lily, Little Mix and Marcus Collins will compete next weekend in the X Factor final after Misha B was eliminated last night
She was already the bookies favourite to be voted out and Misha B recieved the lowest number of public votes onlast night’s X Factor semi-final results show. The 19-year-old appeared composed after losing out a place in the final, despite receiving positive feedback from all the judges during Saturday’s show.
But Gary Barlow had warned he feared she would not win the competition because of wrongful allegations from earlier in the series, suggesting that when judges Tulisa and Louis had accused her of ‘bullying’ she lost the popularity vote. The Take That judge told the audience, “You have been wrongfully accused of being someone that you’re not. Even if you are lucky enough to get through tomorrow night, I don’t think you can win because of that and that’s a shame.”
The Mancunian singer didn’t seem surprised when host Dermot O’Leary announced her fellow contestant Amelia Lily would be staying in the competition, meaning she would be going home. When asked if she had anything to say, Misha remained calm, saying, “I just want to say thank you to every at X Factor for making my dreams a reality, stylists and everyone behind the scenes.”
“Kelly Rowland is the best mentor in the world and thanks to everyone who stood by me through thick and thin.”
Misha took to the stage to sing an emotional rendition of Jessie J’s Who You Are with one of her own raps at the start to see out her final appearance on the show.
Perhaps feeling guilty at her part in the Misha bullying scandal, Tulisa was in tears as Misha performed for the last time.
Later, on the ITV2’s Xtra Factor, her mentor Kelly Rowland, said, “Misha can do whatever she wants to do because that is the kind of artist she is, she’s just so incredibly talented and I’m so proud of her.”
Amelia Lily, who has been dubbed the “comeback kid”, was seen telling Misha “I love you” when the pair when Dermot revealed Amelia would be staying in the X Factor competition. Later on the Xtra Factor, Amelia said, “I can’t believe it. I’m so happy. Thank you to everyone who voted for me.”
Tulisa’s group Little Mix, who were a collection of solo singers put together at boot camp, are now the bookies favourites to win, which would make them the first group to win the show in its eight-year history.
Next weekend the two-part final will take place over Saturday and Sunday in front of a 10,000 crowd at Wembley Arena as the three remaining acts will battle it out for the X Factor title.
The final will include performances from Coldplay, and it is rumoured stars Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Jessie J will each be performing with one of the acts.
