Ella Henderson has been voted off 'The X Factor' after going head to head with James Arthur in a deadlock
Ella Henderson has become the seventh act to be eliminated from 'The X Factor' after tonight's (18.11.12) shock results went to deadlock.
The 16-year-old singer - who had been initially tipped to win this year's reality TV series and was publically given Adele's seal of approval - was booted off the show after she landed in the bottom two alongside fellow favourite James Arthur leaving her mentor Tulisa Contostavlos in tears.
Union J were the first act revealed to be through to next week's show, followed by Rylan Clarke, Jahmene Douglas and Christopher Maloney, who was booed by the audience, leaving James and Ella to go head to head and all four of the judges furious.
The young songstress fought for her place in the competition by singing Daniel Bedingfield's 'If You're Not The One'. James then sang this week's special guest Alicia Keys' debut hit 'Fallin'.
Following the performances, the judges Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow voted to save James, while Tulisa and Louis Walsh chose Ella, bringing the decision to a deadlock and back to the public vote.
Ella received the least amount of votes and was sent home.
Her mentor Tulisa hit out at the public for not voting for her. She said: "This is exactly when people are voting for the wrong people. These people should be finalists. I shouldn't have to make this decision tonight."
But Ella accepted that the competition was extremely tough and said she loved her time on the show.
She said: "This year, the talent on the show is incredible. Everyone deserves to be on this show. I wouldn't be where I am now without this show.
"(I loved) meeting people, the contestants are great. I love you all. I loved performing on this stage. I've loved every minute of it. I've grown so much."
Alicia Keys and Ollie Murs performed on the results show.
