Gary Barlow has shattered the dreams of X Factor hopeful Misha Bryan by telling her that she will not win the competition because of allegations made about her off-stage behaviour.
Earlier in the series judge Tulisa Contostavlos had accused Misha of being "mean" to other contestants. Louis Walsh went further by suggesting she had been a "bully", but was later forced to apologise on the show.
Tonight, after Misha sang to try and secure herself a place in next week's final, Take That star Gary told her: "I have sat here and witnessed your journey throughout this competition and I can't help but feel a little bit sad.
"You have been wrongfully accused in the past of being someone that you are not.
"The really horrible truth behind this is, even if you're lucky enough to get through tomorrow night, I don't think you can win this competition because of that and that's a real shame."
Misha looked shocked at his comments and, after a long pause, said: "I am just really grateful I have had the opportunity to make my dreams into a reality."
Amelia Lily was compared to Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson after singing Ain't No Mountain High Enough. After making the comparison, Louis said: "You are only 17 years old. You absolutely killed that big Motown song."
Girl Group Little Mix did not receive rave reviews for their performances. After their attempt to take on The Supremes, Louis told them "It was like you lost your mojo."
Marcus Collins was told that Motown week was "made for him" after his rendition of The Temptations' song My Girl.
Tomorrow night, one act will be booted from the show, revealing the finalists for this year's contest.
