Here's Jade Ellis' X Factor journey in pictures, from her first audition to her elimination this weekend.
The judges decided to send Jade home over the boy group, with only Tulisa opting to save her.
Speaking after her exit on the Xtra Factor, Jade: "I just want to thank you very much, it's been an absolutely amazing experience I wouldn't have changed anything for the world. I think it's always best to prepare to be in the bottom two, anything else is a bonus."
Tulisa added: "I don't know why Jade didn't connect, it's a tough competition and everyone is so storng. I think it just takes one poor performance and that's that.
"I don't think she's been in Ella and Lucy's shadow, for me I found all the girls very different and that's why I brought them all through to the live shows."
Jade added to hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack: "To me, it's just been an amazing experience and I thank all you judges for the amazing critique, my life starts today."
