Who left The X Factor 2016 last night? The latest elimination results are in but who went home?
It was Semi Finals week on the show (04/12/16) last night as the remaining four contestants performed live again this year.
Those left in the contest going into this weekend were Nicole Scherzinger's final Boy - Matt Terry, Simon Cowell's last Girl - Emily Middlemas, Sharon Osbourne's remaining Over - Saara Aalto, and finally Louis Walsh's last Group - 5 After Midnight.
The judges had plenty to say as the acts each performed twice for the first time this series but as always it was viewer votes alone that determined the bottom two yesterday evening.
Who left The X Factor last night?
At the end of Sunday's results show, we ended up saying goodbye to Emily Middlemas who left the competition and went home.
Lines to vote for the top four singers had opened Saturday ahead of the Christmas themed performances and closed in Sunday night's results show where the bottom two were revealed.
In Sunday evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary announced that Matt Terry and Emily Middlemas were in the bottom two after more than 2 million votes.
It was the first time for both in the sing off as Saara and 5 After Midnight went straight through to next week's final.
In the sing off, Matt performed Christina Aguilera's Hurt while Emily sung Birdy's Wings.
It was then over to the judges to decide who to keep...
This week's X Factor 2016 results
First up was Simon who backed his own act Emily and so sent home Matt. Nicole similarly supported her own act, sending Emily home.
Next, Louis Walsh voted to send Emily home.
With the casting vote, Sharon Osbourne said: "Emily that was a truly beautiful performance... you're all winners but the act I'm sending through to the final is Matt."
Therefore, with three votes to one, Emily bowed out of the competition.
