"Guys... you can't imagine how much of a hard decision this has been for me. I've spent the last 3 or 4 hours crying tears... but I've had to come to a decision," Tulisa said, before naming [tag]Rhythmix[/tag] as the first safe act of the four.
Tulisa then decided to keep [tag]The Risk[/tag] and [tag]Nu Vibe[/tag], leaving to 2 Shoes to go home.
Tulisa said: "Watching last night's performance back... the group I'm taking through is... and I was disappointed in them because it sounded better in the studio, but I know they can do better... the group I'm keeping is Nu Vibe."
She added: "I'm sorry girls, I couldn't even find a reason why but I just had to send one home."
The girls added: "We're just so proud to have made it this far, it's been amazing."
Talking on Xtra Factor, Tulisa said: "This is people's lives and I had to make a decision to change their lives forever. I've become their friends, it was so hard."
