Rachel Hylton out of the X Factor

Despite getting good comments from all the judges, Rachel Hylton has become the latest act to leave the X Factor.

She was joined in the bottom two by Louis Walsh’s last remaining act, JLS.

The theme for the night was ‘Take That’, with all contestants joined in rehearsals by Gary and Mark from the band. There had been tears on the show earlier, after Louis Walsh accused Dannii Minogue of ’stealing’ the song choice he had intended for JLS, which left Dannii visibly upset. Simon Cowell came down firmly on the side of Dannii however, saying she was only ‘doing the best for her act’, and that ‘any of us would have done it’.


  1. It was definitely time for RaheL Hylton to leave the X faxtor, but she had done much better than she did few weeks past. She dint leave as the worst singer of show, she left the way she’ll want to be remebered. Hopefully, someone could sign her up so she’ll have a better life for her kids.

    IMO i think JLS song choice for ‘take that’was not good for them which made them find themselves in the bottom 2 (even though the competition is getting tighter). Them boys voices were way much better than that, and I tink “Rule the world” would have suited them better as a group, though Rachel did a good job with it.

    JLS “STAND BY ME” was a WINNING PERFORMANCE in the sing off, very amazing and in every way they deserved to go through to the next round.Them boys are very superb in vocal harmony .

    Simon saving JLS was a very good decision.

    Alex, Ruth and JLS should be in the final 3.

  2. Well I think Rachel sang her best this week, the week that she was voted out, but the competition is getting tougher now and it is obvious that she wouldnt have won. However I am very much afraid that either Eughon or Diana are going to win, and in my opinion they are the worst two of all, and should have gone out weeks ago, I actually had to hide my eyes when they sang as I found them so embarrasing. Eughon had to have a big backing group to hide his weak voice, and Diana grates on me like chalk on a blackboard. At least Diana has a voice of her own which is easily recognisable, and for people who like the noise she makes that is fair enough. Eughon however,is just very very ordinary, the sort of voice that is very forgetable, and if he were to win, would soon be forgotten afterwards. Still there we are, the best one didnt win last year, but I notice he is doing better than the winner in the longer term.

  3. All i can say is for goodness sake get rid of that squawking cat Diana. She was so out of tune and as for Eoghan absolutely useless. Alexandra or Ruth to win

  5. I have just watched the X-Factor again and regarding Diana Vickers performance of Take That song, she looked like she was miming. I noted the absence of camera close up on the critical high notes and her mouth seemed to move independently of the song
    …very strange indeed.

  6. At last. Now we only need Owen out and it will be a respectable final!

  7. Why do we still have JLS and Owen..(I know I have not spelt this correctly but you know who I mean) in this competition.Do we really need another boy band and if Owen did not have a microphone you would not be able to hear him behind a wet paper bag.The others are far superior. What is up with the public AND the judges?Is this turning out to be another stictly come dancing!!!!!!!!!

  8. SO……..FINALLY Rachel is out….she was’nt good in the show and as for the sing off…….she didn’t even get the song title right when she was asked what she was singing !!! It’s called ” And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going ” NOT…I’m Not Leaving (Oh yes you are Rachel) Anyone who’s ever heard the original version of this song by Jennifer Holliday would know just what a passionate and emotional song it is and Rachel didn’t show either.
    Alexandra or JLS to win !!!

  9. What is the point of the sing-off. Judges gave comments for Rachel such as that is the best she has ever sung in the competion. However, then voted her off. She obviously sang much better than JLS in the sing-off so therfore should have gone through. The judges were apparently voting for who they thought would go further in the competition, therefore the sing-off was irrelevant.

  12. finally now all we need is diana to get booted and then it will feel like an actual talent competition. alexandra and JLS for the final. although ruth is awesome too and people dont give her enough credit for how talented she is.

  13. JLS get my vote to win they are fantastic. Please get rid of Diana, I can’t stand much more of her or Danni, I hope Simon does get rid of her and bring Sharon back.

    JLS and Alex For the final.

  14. Diana will go out tonight so that they all have one each next week. Then as I’ve said before the result is already decided and JLS will have their music and branded clothing and accessories in the shops for Christmas, just hope it’s not Woolworths.

  16. I am in total shock HOW DID THAT DIANE GET THROUGH. She cant sing at all she sqeaks like my parrot. Is this programme becoming a fix to. Ruth was fantastic as are all the other singers who deserve to be in the semi final.I will never watch this progamme again it is just a repeat of last year. Does anyone remember who you even called last years winner!Need I say anymore!

  17. oh no! Ruth has gone, she was my favourite from the beginning, she has a fantastic voice. I thought that Simon’s comment about it being a British competition didnt help her at all, and maybe people didnt vote for her because she was Spanish. But why oh why are the screetching Diana and the mediocre Eughon still there?
    Diana was worse than ever tonight, and Eughon is pathetic, but it seems to matter more where a person lives, or if they look like a Barbie doll, than how much talent they have. Hopefully Alexandra will win,now Ruth can’t.

  18. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS the mouse as finaly gone about bloody time aswell, i thought her mentor might of told her if you move the mic away from your mouth no one can here you lol, she must of missed a wholr line of words lol. just a shame they had to get rid of good singers to keep her in .

  19. Now you people are weird… Rachel and Diana were by far the most talented people there. Rachel has more personality in her left toe than all the other girls taken together can ever dream of having. Ruth and Alexandra have excellent voices but they’re not special, it’s as simple as that. At least not compared to Rachel and Diana who have powerful personalities. And it’s personality that makes an artist, not his/her voice.

    Well, at least after reading this blog I understand now why both Rachel and Diana were voted out. The audience hasn’t got a clue when it comes to judging a talent. But I know both girls will make it because there were enough professionals there to appreciate their gift, and professionals are the ones that should decide, not clueless amateurs. Sorry people, just speaking my mind!
