Tulisa Contostavlos's boyband and Gary Barlow's 18-year-old Cocozza only picked up 0.6% and 0.9% in our 'Who Sang Best?' poll, following Saturday night's 'Love & Heartache' show. Over 17,000 readers voted.
Nu Vibe's cover of U2's 'With or Without You' and Cocozza's take on Coldplay classic 'The Scientist' disappointed Digital Spy users who correctly forecast that the pair would find themselves in the sing-off.
Cocozza was saved by the judges last night after a rendition of Daniel Merriweather's 'Red', which he originally planned to perform on Saturday, before a last-minute song switch from his mentor Barlow.
Louis Walsh offered comfort to Nu Vibe, claiming that they had "great potential" if they stuck together and "rehearsed, rehearsed, rehearsed".
Janet Devlin was Digital Spy readers' favourite performer of the evening, following her rendition of Elvis Presley's 'Can't Help Falling In Love'.
The X Factor continues next Saturday on ITV1.
