Shelley Smith has become the second to leave The X Factor 2013 in tonight's results.

Yesterday evening was the second time the final eleven acts performed, singing modern Love songs for a Love & Heartbreak them.

Abi Alton, Hannah Barrett, Kingsland Road, Luke Friend, 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.

It put Kingsland Road in the bottom two, before lines reopened until this evening's results show. Once lines closed, host Dermot O'Leary revealed that the Shelley Smith had received the next fewest number of votes, placing them in the sing-off alongside Kingsland.

The pair then performed again for the judges, with Kingsland singing Try by Pink while Shelley sung Sam Brown track Stop.

It was then over to the judges to make their decision, starting with Gary Barlow, who saved his own act Kingsland Road.

Unsurprisingly, Sharon also backed her own act and saved Shelley.

Nicole Scherzinger voted to send Shelley home, saying: "Shelley, you have the most shamazing personality in this competition, you really inspire me... but I had your back last week, so I have to have the boys' back next week."

Left with the casting vote, Louis said: "It was an amazing sing off, I have to save the act that has the most potential. The act I'm sending home is Shelley."

With three votes to one, Shelley was eliminated from the competition.

Shelley said: “I just want to say thank you to everybody on the X Factor because I have had the time of my life and Mrs O is amazing.”

The X Factor 2013 live shows continue next Saturday and Sunday with movie week.
