X Factor: Sami Brookes eliminated

Sami Brookes has become the latest contestant to be eliminated from the singing competition.

She ended up in the bottom two alongside Kitty Brucknell after failing to gain enough public votes. Earlier this week the bookmakers had Sami as the favourite to leave the show. Her performance of Cher’s classic ‘Turn Back Time’ yesterday was heavily criticised by Gary Barlow. Below is who each judge decided to send home.

Gary Barlow – Sami

Kelly Rowland – Sami

Tulisa Contostavlos – Kitty

Louis Walsh – Sami

Louis refused to take it to deadlock and chose to send home Sami. She made it through to the live shows after Goldie pulled out shortly after judges’ houses. Her performance of Whitney Houston’s ‘One Moment In Time’ at the audition wowed the judges and audiences at home. Her exit means that Louis Walsh has two acts left in the Over 25 category.

Speaking to Dermot O’Leary she said: “I may not go on to sell millions of records like Gary Barlow said but I’m going to sing for the rest of my life”
