  • Sent home after singing showdown with Misha B

    They are two of the strongest vocalists in this year’s X Factor, but last night Kitty Brucknell and Misha B found themselves singing for survival, after both landing in the bottom two.

    Despite two powerful performances it was Kitty the judges decided to send home for good. But it seems her luck may already be on the up, as she seems to have found a new friend by the name of Lady Gaga


    Guest performer Gaga, who didn’t disappoint with her strange beheaded costume, seems to have taken quite a shine to eccentric Kitty, running onstage after the singing hopeful’s exit shouting ‘where’s Kitty?’

    The unlikely pair are said to have then bonded backstage, reportedly hiding out in Simon Cowell’s former dressing room and drinking wine together.

    While 19-year-old Misha B was saved by votes from Gary, Tulisa and Kelly, the judges weren’t without praise for Kitty, with Tulisa saying: ‘I think you are both amazingly talented… but I would rather buy Misha’s albums.’

    Gary added: ‘Can I just say first, what an amazing sing-off.

    ‘If you were to ask me two people who wanted this the most, it would be Misha and Kitty.

    When host Dermot O’Leary asked for her final statement, Kitty broke out into Lady Gaga’s hit song Born This Way, singing: ‘I’m beautiful in my way, ’cause God makes no mistakes. I’m on the right track baby, I was born this way’.

    Continuing to fight for the X Factor crown next week are Little Mix, Craig Colton, Marcus Collins, Janet Devlin, Misha B and returning reject Amelia Lily.
