Kitty Brucknell was encouraged to give Kelly Rowland ''the finger'' as she was booted off 'The X Factor' last night (13.11.11)

Kitty Brucknell was encouraged to give Kelly Rowland "the finger" as she left 'The X Factor'.

The eccentric singer was voted off the ITV1 talent show last night (13.11.11) but had already prepared herself for the news and discussed with mentor Louis Wals hthe possibility of making a rude gesture at judge Kelly Rowland so she could leave in memorable way.

She said: "I had spoken to Louis about the possibility of going out and he said I should go in style, and we were just joking about it and what I was gonna do and he said, 'Jump up on the table and stick your middle finger to Kelly!' And I was like, 'I can't do that!'

"Actually I think it came from one of the reporters, but it was kind of funny and we made it a big laugh."

In the end, the 26-year-old blonde stunned viewers by grabbing the microphone from host Dermot O'Leary and bursting into hit Lady Gaga song, 'Born This Way', as she wanted to give everyone a message of encouragement.

Kitty added in an interview with ITV1's 'This Morning': "I just thought, What would I like to leave everybody with? And I thought those words and that song were perfect.

"Louis didn't know what I was going to do but I had told him I wanted to leave a message for everyone, because I think I've had a weird journey and fought my way through the competition."

Although she had prepared herself for leaving 'The X Factor', Kitty - who met her idol Lady Gaga on the results show last night (13.11.11) - believes she was treated unfairly by "toxic" people in the industry.

She said: "I almost considered quitting because I just thought there's no way I'm going to get back from this, as my whole life had been aired in the press. But a lot of it was made up.

"The industry is quite a bitter one and is made up by of a lot of people who have tried to make it and failed and their toxic egos."
