A fifth act left The X Factor 2016 in last night's latest live show - here's what went down!

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

As always, viewers voted throughout the weekend and the bottom three were revealed on Sunday night just after lines had closed.

Who was in the bottom three?

In thSundayis evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary announced that Samantha Lavery, Saara Aalto and Four Of Diamonds were in the bottom three after the main voted.

It was the third time for both Saara and Four Of Diamonds but the first time for Sam.

Once again, the life line vote returned as viewers had five minutes to save their favourite of the trio from the sing off. Despite some problems with the app, Sam was the one to be called out as safe. That left Saara and Four Of Diamonds to sing off, the third time for both acts.

What happened in the sing off?

First up, Four Of Diamonds performed Whitney Houston's When You Believe before Saara belted out Jessie J's Who You Are.

It was then over to the judges to decide who to keep...

Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh both backed their own acts, sending home Saara and our Of Diamonds respectively.

Nicole Scherzinger sent home Four Of Diamonds leaving Simon Cowell with the casting vote.

Simon said: "You had a good night last night girls, and I thought if any song is going to save you, it was that song. That act I have to keep who has the ablity to turn it around still in this competition and by a clear mile, killed it in this sing off. The act I have to send home is Four Of Diamonds."

So with three votes to one, Four Of Diamonds left the competition.
