Jade Ellis has become the latest act to be eliminated from The X Factor.

Ellis was in the bottom two this week alongside boyband Union J after receiving the fewest amount of votes from the public. She then lost out on the judges' vote after competing in a sing-off.

She performed Dido's White Flag, while Union J sang a rendition of Pink's Perfect in the sing-off. However, Tulisa's act was eliminated after the judges chose to save Louis Walsh's group.

Walsh and Tulisa predictably chose to save their own acts this week, while both Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow chose to save Union J and send Ellis home.

Scherzinger said that although Ellis had possibly her "favourite voice" in the competition, she saw how hard Union J were working.

The final vote came from Barlow, who said that although Ellis is a "phenomenal vocalist", he questioned her desire to win.

Ellis was criticised after she performed the Sugababes Freak Like Me in a Halloween special of the show on Saturday night.

Walsh said the performance had "more style than substance", while Barlow commented that her vocals weren't as strong as previous weeks.

The X Factor continues next Saturday at 8.20pm on UTV and TV3.
