Shocking: The X Factor 2012: Eliminations (Week 7)

The X Factor 2012 saw its 7th set of eliminations tonight. Find out who’s heading home this week…

{An international phenomenon, local versions of the show show now air in the US, Italy, France and beyond. The brain-child of Simon Cowell, The X Factor is responsible for birthing the careers of Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, One Direction, Cher Lloyd and JLS.
Judging the hopefuls are Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, original panelist Louis Walsh, and newcomer Nicole Scherzinger}.

After shockingly registering the lowest public vote of the contestants, James Arthur and Ella Henderson were two acts put on the chopping block.

The weekly sing-off proceeded with Ella taking to the stage singing Daniel Beddingfield’s ‘If You’re Not The One’, with James following with Alicia Keys’ ‘Fallin’.

In the end, it was James who was  granted a pass onto next week’s show, after the judges couldn’t reach a majority vote – reverting to deadlock – revealing Ella to be the act with the lowest public support this week.


The X Factor continues on ITV1 next Saturday.

      Are you kidding me? He’s the worst ever talent show contestant since sanjaya from american idol a few years back. But he did that on the spice girls performance I was entertained for days! I’ll give him that.

    See this is what happens when the show like this become more then just the voices. Ella & James were the best by far.

    Rylan, Christopher, & Jaheme should have left the first night..

    None of these acts are memorable or particularly amazing.
    Ella and James only look good because they are standing next to Rylan and Christopher.
    best of a bad bunch

    Don’t care for any of them to be honest. The talent this year on X Factor with the exception of that Jade person has been the worst. I like Union J because they seem like they’ll have the most commercial success, the rest will FLOP.
