Four of Diamonds' X Factor journey comes to an end
Girl group Four of Diamonds battled it out against Saara Aalto in the sing-off on the ITV programme on Sunday night (06Nov16).
Four of Diamonds were voted off The X Factor on Sunday night (06Nov16).
The girl group competed against Saara Aalto in the sing-off on the ITV programme, but failed to impress the judges with their performance of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston's When You Believe.
Instead, Saara was voted through after an incredible performance of Jessie J's hot Who Are You?
While Louis Walsh opted to save his own act, Four of Diamonds, Sharon Osbourne quickly delivered her verdict before Nicole Scherzinger appeared to be struggling with her decision.
However, after Saara’s mentor Mrs O urged her to "do the right thing", Nicole also sent Four of Diamonds home, saying: "After I heard Four of Diamonds I made up my mind, then after I heard Saara, I'm sorry but for me you killed that song and I relate to it, so it's Four of Diamonds."
When it came to Simon Cowell’s vote he said: "You know it’s interesting you had a good night last night Four of Diamonds, Saara you had a bad night and we discussed why.
"The act I have to keep is the one who has the ability to turn it around, and still be in the competition, and by a clear mile Saara had it. So I have to send Four of Diamonds home."
After the final blow was delivered, host Dermot O'Leary spoke to the four-piece band, who said they were grateful to have been given an opportunity on the programme.
"It's been an amazing, like, I'm lost for words. The competition is amazing and we're so grateful for it. Thank you so much," they said.
However, the girls will be given another opportunity to impress as being in the final eight of the programme means they will perform as part of The X Factor's live tour next year (17).
