Shelley Smith has been voted into the bottom two in tonight's X Factor 2013 live show.

It was the first time the final 12 performed, singing hit songs from the 80s.

Abi Alton, Hannah Barrett, Kingsland Road, Lorna Simpson, Luke Friend, Miss Dynamix, Nicholas McDonald, Rough Copy, Sam Bailey, Sam Callahan, Shelley Smith and Tamera Foster all sung for the judges and us viewers.

After all of the contestant had sung, lines opened for a new 'Flash vote' lasting for less than 10 minutes.

After the ads, Dermot O'Leary gathered the finalists on stage together to announce the results, confirming that all of the Girls, Groups and Boys were safe.

With the fewest votes, Sharon Osbourne's Overs singer Shelley Smith was revealed as the first performer in this year's first bottom two.

Lines have since reopened and will remain open until Sunday night where they will close during the live show.

The contestant with the fewest votes in that poll will join Shelley in the bottom two.

They will then sing off and the judges will each vote on which act they want to keep in the competition.

There will be no deadlock this year, much to Dermot's relief, although it's not yet been made clear what will happen if the judges' votes are tied.

Are you surprised by the results? Who do you think will join Shelley in the bottom two tomorrow?

The X Factor 2013 results air Sunday at 8PM on ITV.
