Alisah keeps her X Factor hopes alive

By Francesca Gosling

X Factor hopeful Alisah Bonaobra has been given a last-minute place in the next round of the competition following a stunning sing-off performance.

The 22-year-old was almost kicked off the ITV talent show last night when judge Sharon Osbourne made her give up her seat to Grace Davies during the first episode of the Six Chair Challenge round.

However, the outraged audience demanded Osbourne change her mind.

Fellow judge Simon Cowell even commented he "would have made very different decisions".

Finally relenting, Osbourne invited Bonaobra back to the stage in a head-to-head a cappella contest with teenagers Scarlett Lee and Rai-Elle, where she wowed the room with her performance of Jessie J's Bang Bang, showing off both rapping and singing skills.

Rai-Elle (16) was also allowed to keep her seat following her soulful offering of Break Every Chain but Lee, who was the first to claim a seat, was sent home.
