Kitty goes Gaga after X Factor flop

Kitty Brucknell has been kicked off The X Factor

Kitty Brucknell became the latest hopeful to be kicked off The X Factor - and was comforted by one of her inspirations, Lady Gaga.

Kitty was put into the sing-off against Misha B, but three of the four judges decided last night she should go.

She was given an emotional embrace by Gaga - a guest on the show, performing her song Marry The Night with a bizarre routine in which she appeared to have been beheaded - and the chart star announced she was taking the disappointed wannabe for a drink.

Kitty sang Over The Rainbow, while Misha tried to win the judges over with Jessie J's Who You Are.

After the sing-off, Louis Walsh said both girls "absolutely killed it" and picked Misha B to go home.

Fellow judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland praised the women's performances but both sent Kitty home.

Take That star Gary Barlow had the final say. He said of all the other five acts that had gone through the two slugging it out for survival "want it the most", but he agreed Kitty had reached the end of the road.

Later Kitty said on The Xtra Factor she had been given career advice by Gaga as they chatted.

After a week of high drama which saw Frankie Cocozza kicked out of the contest for his drug boasts, the show had further woes on Saturday when it went off air because of a technical fault. BT later said there had been an "unusual power spike" which disrupted services transmitted by BT Tower. It is still looking into the cause.

Amelia Lily re-entered the competition on Saturday as viewers were given the chance to vote for one of four acts given a further chance, in the wake of Frankie's departure.
