Who left The X Factor 2016 lst night? Who was saved? Here's your full X Factor results recap!

It was Halloween week on the show Saturday night as the remaining 9 contestants performed live for the third time this year.

Those left in the contest going into the weekend were Nicole Scherzinger's Boys - Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie, Simon Cowell's Girls - Emily Middlemas, Samantha Lavery and Gifty Louise, Sharon Osbourne's Overs - Honey G and Saara Aalto, and finally Louis Walsh's Groups - 5 After Midnight and Four of Diamonds.

The judges had plenty to say on each of the spellbinding performances but as always it was viewer votes alone that determined those in danger.

In yesterday evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary first announced the acts in the bottom three.

Four Of Diamonds, Ryan Lawrie and Gifty Louise were in the elimination zone, the second time in as many weeks for both Four Of Diamonds and Ryan but the first time ever for Gifty.

But Ryan was - for the third time - saved by the lifeline vote, leaving Gifty and Four Of Diamonds to sing off.

Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh both backed their own acts, sending home Four Of Diamonds and Gifty Louise respectively.

Nicole Scherzinger sent home Gifty Louise leaving Sharon Osbourne with the casting vote.

"The name of the act I'm sending home tonight is Gifty," Sharon revealed. She later said Xtra Factor of her decision: 'I thought who out of these two would make the best album.'

The result was met with boos from the live audience while Gifty looked FUMING.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Gifty said: "I've made a lot of good friends... I knew I was going home. The girls [Four Of Diamonds] were amazing.
