Say goodbye to Kitty
Monday 14 November 2011
It just goes to show that nothing on X Factor is expected! If that was the case, then it certainly wouldn't have been Kitty Brucknell and Mischa B fighting to keep their place in the competition last night.
The two were left in the bottom two after the public vote kept in newbie Amelia Lilly and Janet, who many thought may have been in trouble after her 'boring' performance.
This was the second time both Mischa and Kitty had found themselves in the bottom two, arguably down to their personalities as opposed to their voices.
Kitty stripped everything back for her survival song. She sung a beautiful rendition of 'Over the Rainbow' and blew the audience away with her strong vocals. But Mischa was a keen rival and rocked Jessie J's track 'Who You Are.'
Louis was the first to cast his vote, and obviously backed his own act and chose to send Mischa home, but the three other judges opted to send Kitty (and Louis last act) home.
Tulisa said: 'I think you are both amazingly talented... but I would rather buy Misha's albums.'
Gary said: '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.
'Kitty, it's got to be the likeability factor, because you sing and perform incredibly. Misha, if I took all the acts to a record label, you would be the first to be signed. The act I'm sending home is Kitty.'
Before the end of the show, Louis gushed: 'She's one of the best people I've ever mentored. I want someone to sign her.'
And in true Kitty style, she opted for a song as her last words.
As host Dermot O'Leary asked her for her final statement, she sang Lady Gaga's Born This Way: 'I'm beautiful in my way, 'cause God makes no mistakes. I'm on the right track baby, I was born this way.'
Do you think the best person went home?
