Shes%20back%20...%20Amelia%20Lily
She's back ... Amelia Lily

Published: 13th November 2011

AXED Amelia Lily was favourite to WIN X Factor last night after an astonishing comeback — ending a shambolic week for the ITV show.

Bosses saw a mystery power outage delay the start of Saturday night's show by 16 minutes.

Meanwhile viewers cringed as weeping Kitty Brucknell, 26, was voted off last night and screeched a version of Lady Gaga hit Born This Way.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter, one posting: "Somebody shoot her."

Kitty went after losing a sing-off with Misha B — the former favourite who was in the bottom two for the second time.

Amelia, 17, was picked in the public vote to replace axed Frankie Cocozza — five weeks after being booted off the show.

Ladbrokes and William Hill both installed her as favourite at 11/4 after she sang Queen's The Show Must Go On.

Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Donohue said: "It was a shock for us when she went because she was the favourite before the live shows.

'Compliments' ... Kitty Brucknell's Twitter feedback

"She was actually the rank outsider to be booted out — it was a massive shock. She has come back now and X Factor may be on a recovery mission."

Show bosses had expected a huge boost in viewing figures following a week of drama which saw Frankie Cocozza exit after a cocaine, booze and sex rampage.

But the prime-time Saturday show was wrecked by a technical fault at the BT Tower in central London.

An auditions round-up was screened while technicians battled to get the show on air.

An insider said: "A series of events has conspired to bring chaos to the show."

This year's series of the hit talent show has already been hit by a ratings meltdown, with BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing attracting more viewers for the first time in three years.

A BT spokesman said it could take up to two days to work out the cause of the power cut.

He said: "We can confirm there was an unusual power spike on Saturday evening which disrupted services from the BT Tower for a short time."

I think Kitty is great and is a loss to a show that is fast losing all credibility. At least she was different. Apart from Janet you can't hear any individuality in any of the finalists voices.

and its goodbye from her

She was different but my god she wasn't very good. Anyone who has to shout rather than sing shoudn't be up there

did anyone catch what was shouted just before Kitty sang her survival song?  I rewound a few times and could make it out.

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

You don't have to agree, we all have our opinions and I too am a trained singer with perfect pitch.
