The X Factor 2016 judges were booed in tonight's results show after a shock exit.

This evening saw the fourth X Factor 2016 results of the series as Gifty Louise bowed out of the competition.

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

In this evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary first announced the trio of acts in the danger zone.

Four Of Diamonds, Ryan Lawrie and Gifty Louise were in the bottom three, 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 this series - saved by the lifeline vote, leaving Gifty and Four Of Diamonds to sing off.

Tonight's X Factor results

Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh both backed their own acts, although there was a SUPER awkward moment when Simon accidentally sent home Gifty.

Fortunately for Simon, Dermot didn't accept his first answer...

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 declared without reason.

The result was met with boos from the live audience and utter OUTRAGE on Twitter.

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.

"Simon, thank you so much, thank you for everything!"

Simon went on to admit he had made a mistake with Gifty's song choice on Saturday, a cover of Fifth Harmony's I’m in Love With a Monster.

The X Factor 2016 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
