Melanie Masson Leaves The X Factor
Deadlock sees oldest contestant leave as District3 go through…
Gary, who has now lost two of his acts, said he was ‘gutted’, adding: "I'm so sad to see her go so early. This competition never fails to shock me. I thought she was the safest act this weekend."
Melanie told show host Dermot O’Leary: “I’ve absolutely enjoyed every single second of being here and the opportunities it’s brought. It’s just been amazing.”
Meanwhile, 16-year-old Ella Henderson brought the house down again this weekend with another pitch-perfect performance. Her version of Minnie Riperton's classic Lovin' You was met with rapturous applause on Saturday night.
Head judge Gary praised her for taking on a difficult song, saying: “The F-sharp descending… you completely nailed it,” while Nicole, who has previously been moved to tears by the teen’s performance, described her talent as “timeless and classic.”
Ella remains one of the favourites to win the competition as the 11 hopefuls continue to battle it out on the live stage next week.
