Dannii Minogue and Ruth Lorenzo team up for album

Dannii Minogue and X Factor 2008 contestant Ruth Lorenzo are to team up to record an album.

Dannii hasn’t recorded since her 2003 album Neon Nights. Ruth Lorenzo finished fifth behind eventual winner Alexandra Burke.

Dannii said: “Its been pushed back to my agenda for a long time. I think since X Factor came on the scene I’ve been heavily involved in the mentoring of other people and helping their music career. It’s kind of scary for me today because it’s like getting back on the horse.”

Louis Walsh in Tears as Ruth Lorenzo Out

The X Factor journey finally came to an end for Ruth Lorenzo last night, after she polled the lowest number of public votes.
The theme for the night was Britney Spears, which almost certainly contributed to Eoghan polling the second lowest number of votes. Earlier Simon Cowell had commented how none of Britney’s songs suited Eoghan’s voice, and correctly predicted it would be a tough week for him.

Laura White leaves the X Factor

Ruth Lorenzo and Laura White made up the bottom two this week, for which the theme was Mariah Carey songs.

In the sing-off, Ruth sang ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’, whilst Laura sang ‘Somwhere over the Rainbow’.

Simon Cowell had kind words for both girls, saying that neither deserved to be in the bottom two. Ultimately, he voted to send Laura home, and Cheryl and Dannii both predictably voted to keep their own acts in.

Louis Walsh was therefore again forced to cast the deciding vote, and in doing so he said he was voting to keep the act ‘with the most fight left’, leaving Ruth to fight another week.
