PICTURES! XFactor 2013 results - Lorna Simpson leaves!

Here's a picture look back at tonight's XFactor 2013 results, as the first elimination of the series took place.

Tonight's show kicked off with an upbeat group performance, as the final 12 performed together for the first and last time, singing a rather tuneless version of Daft Punk's Get Lucky.

Ellie Goulding then took to the stage to perform her number one hit single Burn, before the legend that is Cher rocked the show with new single I Hope You Find It.

It was then over to the results, as the finalists returned to the stage to find out their fate.

In his usual tense manner, Dermot O'Leary delivered in the nail biting results, with both Overs acts Shelley Smith and Lorna Simspon ending up in the bottom two.

The pair sung off, and Lorna became the first to leave in tonight's X Factor 2013 results.

“I am probably a bit shocked, it feels as surreal as it did when I even got this far," Lorna said after her exit. "I am going to use it as my stepping stone and I am definitely going to grow from this. I just thank everyone at X Factor for giving me that chance.”

She added: “I just probably would have liked to have shown my versatility, but I remained myself, I stayed true to myself.”

Are you surprised by the results? Who did you want to leave?

The X Factor 2013 live shows continue next Saturday and Sunday with a Love and Heartbreak theme.
