Kitty Brucknell was voted off 'The X Factor' last night (13.11.11).
The controversial hopeful - who landed in the bottom two alongside Misha B - took on head judge Gary Barlow's advice and stripped everything back with her sing-off performance of 'Over The Rainbow' following Saturday night's Lady Gaga and Queen-themed episode.
However, after failing to connect with the public throughout the competition, only Kitty's own mentor, Louis Walsh, voted to keep her in the ITV1 show over Misha, who performed a rendition of Jessie J's 'Who You Are'.
Tulisa Contostavlos told the pair: "I think you are both amazingly talented, but I would rather buy Misha's albums."
Gary added: "Can I just say first? What an amazing sing-off. If you were to ask me two people who wanted this the most, it would be Misha and Kitty.
"Kitty, it's got to be the likeability factor, because you sing and perform incredibly. Misha, if I took all the acts to a record label, you would be the first to be signed. The act I'm sending home is Kitty."
However, the blow of leaving the competition was perhaps softened for former Lady Gaga impersonator Kitty after her idol - who performed her new track 'Marry The Night' on the results show - rushed on stage for an emotional embrace with the hopeful while she was being interviewed by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack on 'The Xtra Factor'.
After comforting Kitty - who burst into a rendition of Gaga's 'Born This Way' when she heard she would be leaving the competition - the 25-year-old pop superstar took her backstage to her dressing room to hand her some career advice.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Gaga couldn't believe Kitty had been axed and thought she was one of the most talented and exciting acts in the competition.
"She thought that Kitty had been misunderstood and it reminded her of her own struggles to be accepted."
