Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Dionne

Dionne and her family have spoken out about their feelings towards the way Simon Dionne X Factor 2006Cowell criticised her on the show. Dionne polled the lowest number of X Factor votes and was eliminated from the show after she was told by Cowell that she had “the grace of a boxer” and that she “couldn’t win the show in a million years.”
At a recent press conference, Dionne said: “I felt that Simon’s comments were a personal attack against me. I have always held Simon Cowell in great esteem. But last night shattered every illusion that I had of him.”

She added: “I didn’t come on this show to be a backing singer.”

Dionne’s brother, Wayne, 43, also commented, saying: “Dionne was bullied as a teenager and Cowell’s brazen bully tactics were a systematic put-down that won’t help her confidence one bit. He needs to know he can’t get away with shouting his mouth off.”

Sharon Loses Two Acts After Double Eviction - Dionne And Kerry Out

Dionne X FactorBoth Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh have only two acts remaining, whilst Simon Cowell retains all his acts after tonight’s double eviction “twist”.

Dionne initially polled the lowest number of votes from the public, meaning she was automatically removed from the competition. This left a sing-off between Ashley and Kerry, with Louis having the casting vote.

Whilst some might have expected Louis to vote tactically, particularly with the ribbing he has been receiving from Simon, he was extremely fair, and explained that he felt Kerry had ‘peaked’, whilst Ashley still had more to offer. As such, he had no option but to send Kerry home.
