Alisha claims X Factor Exit was a ‘conspiracy’

Alisha Bennett was the latest X Factor wannabe to be booted out of the competition on Friday, leaving Sharon Osbourne with no acts left this year.

Sharon was extremely vocal on Saturday’s show in her criticism of Simon Cowell, claiming that he controlled everything and that she had very little say in what happened during the show.

This is something Alisha echoed, saying “It’s true what Sharon said on Saturday – Simon does have the overall hand on everything.”. When asked about Simon’s criticism of her dancers, she said “For him to say something like that was, you know, a bit of a conspiracy. He watched my rehearsals on Friday”.

Alisha is now tipping Rhydian to win the contest.

Alisha out after sing-off with Hope

It was a battle of the girls in the bottom two, as Hope and Alisha sang to save their place in the contest.

Simon and Sharon both opted to save their own acts, leaving the decision on who stayed and who went to Louis and Dannii. A tearful Dannii voted to send Alisha home. Louis agonised over his choice, saying “Alisha has so much more to give [...] do I ruin one person’s dream of five people’s? [...] I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t!”
After much deliberation Louis finally decided to send Alisha home, leaving Sharon with no acts.

Earlier there was some controversy when sibling duo Same Difference were booed by the studio audience after being told they were the first act through to the next week.
