Lola Saunders has become the latest contestant to be voted off The X Factor.

Both Lola and eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks received the lowest number of votes, leaving them to do vocal battle in the sing-off.

Lola, 20, took on Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" while Stereo Kicks, compiled by the judges from solo entrants, performed P!nk's "F**kin' Perfect".

Cheryl and Louis both saved their own acts, Lola and Stereo Kicks respectively. Mel B sent home Lola after an "annoyingly" good performance from the group, while Simon said goodbye to Stereo Kicks and took the final decision to deadlock. The public opted to end Lola's X Factor dream.

Earlier in the show, guest star John Legend played the beginning of "Ordinary People" before breaking into his recent chart hit "All Of Me", while Cheryl took to the stage to perform her new single "I Don't Care".


Jack Walton left the show last night after a spooky Halloween twist saw the act with the fewest public votes evicted, without a last chance in the sing-off.

The Yorkshire 18-year-old's rendition of "Bleeding Love" fell flat with viewers and received mixed reactions from the judges, renamed Lucifer Walsh, Cheryl Fangnandez-Versini, Slimon Cowell and Hell B.

Louis decided Jack was a "small room performer", Cheryl "felt nervous and uncomfortable" and Simon criticised the bizarre moment when a vampire bite him on the neck.

"It's all gone too crazy," he judged. "I don't think this is you. I think you have compromised yourself."

Simon had dropped the 'Fright Night' bombshell on contestants in an ominous pre-show meeting. “There are no second chances," he warned. "We decided to do this because I think you all need a bit of a wake up call. You put out a rubbish record it doesn’t chart. If you do a rubbish performance on the night, you’re out."

Recent weeks have seen Jake Quickenden, Chloe Jasmine, Steph Nala, Blonde Electra and Overload Generation depart the X Factor stage.

Taylor Swift, Jessie J, Maroon 5, Pharrell Williams, One Republic and Ed Sheeran have all played their hits on this series of The X Factor, with Cheryl last performing in 2009 with "Fight For This Love".
