Sami sent home after sing-off with Kitty
Monday 24 October 2011
Louis Walsh was stuck in the position no judge wants to fi9nd themselves in this weekend - both of his acts were in the bottom two. The Irish judge was disappointed as Kitty and Sammi both found themsleves fighting for their place in the competition after receiving the fewest votes from the public.
Sami, nicknamed 'The Voice' of the competition gave a great rendition of Natural Woman, but it wasn't wuite enough to gain her the judges votes as all but one voted for Kitty's version of Gaga's Edge of Glory.
Louis had a difficult decision but went with Kitty, sending his act Sammi home. Gary told Sami: 'your voice is undeniable but I've always found you a little bit dated.'
Kelly also opted for Kitty: 'This is really hard. Sami, I absolutely adore you and Kitty I think you're a wonderful entertainer, but I'm sending home Sami.'
Tulisa spiced up the vote by opting to send Kitty home, saying: 'I've got to vote with my heart and the person I most connect with, so the act I'm sending home is Kitty.'
And so, it was Louis who could have taken it to deadlock where the decision would have gone down to the person with the lowest votes, who had the ultimate decision.
Walsh said: 'I love both girls, but Kitty, you're not connecting with the public for some reason. Sami, you were incredible, you sang your heart out. Do I go with my head? Do I go with my heart?
'I'm going to go with my heart and the person I'm going to have to send home is Sami.'
The 31-year-old had the last word, saying: 'I may not be able to sell a million albums, but I am going to sing for the rest of my life.'
Louis also apologised for last night's antics, when he accused Misha B of bullying contestants. He told Dermot: Dermot: 'We're all so involved in our own acts, but I got a bit carried away.
'I know I shouldn't have used the b-word and I apologise for that. It was the heat of the moment.'
