Treyc Cohen leaves the X Factor

Katie and Treyc polled the lowest number of votes and were in the bottom two this week – both of them having previously been in the bottom two.

Katie struggled through her performance of Please Don’t Give Up On Me, at one point saying “You know what, sod it!” and sitting down.

As a result it was a huge surprise when Treyc was voted off the show by the judges.

Treyc sang Un-Break My Heart, but was inexplicably voted out by Simon and Louis. Louis said that his head was telling him to keep Treyc in the competition, but he went with his heart.

Treyc said that she thought she failed to connect with the viewing public. Even Katie seemed shocked to still be in the competition.
