Emilie Fleming became the latest hopeful to be voted off 'Over The Rainbow' last night (25.04.10).
The 19-year-old wannabe Dorothy was sent home from the BBC One talent show by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber following her performance of 'I Know Him So Well' in the sing-off with fellow contestant Sophie Evans.
Emilie - who was voted in by viewers as the 'wildcard' - said: "I've got to say I want to thank my mum and dad, I wouldn't be here without them. Thanks to the public for voting me in.
"I've had an amazing experience and learnt so much. I'm going to toughen up, and I'm going to train, and you'll see me on the stage. And to the girls, I love you all."
On Saturday (24.04.10), Emilie received mixed comments from the judging panel - made up of Charlotte Church, John Partridge and Sheila Hancock - after her version of Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun'.
Charlotte said: "It was a fun, frivolous performance but there were some control issues."
Before announcing the two girls who received the least number of public votes, host Graham Norton asked the panel who they didn't think was Dorothy and all said Emilie.
The seven remaining contenders hoping to win the part of Dorothy in Andrew's new production of 'The Wizard of Oz' are Sophie, Stephanie Davis, Lauren Samuels, Danielle Hope, Jessica Robinson, Steph Fearon and Jenny Douglas.
