Alisha Bennett voted off 'The X Factor'
Alisha Bennett became the fifth act to be voted off The X Factor last night.

The 23-year-old, dubbed "the comeback kid" by host Dermot O'Leary, had been in the bottom two on two previous occasions. This time, she found herself competing against girl group Hope in the final showdown.

As usual, once both acts had performed for a second time, it was down to the four judges to decide their fate. Only Sharon Osbourne voted to send Hope home, while Alisha received elimination votes from Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Dannii Minogue.

Asked how she felt about the result, Alisha replied: "I did the best I could."

Her mentor Sharon said: "Alisha knows how I feel about her. I can't say it on camera. She is a class act."

Osbourne now has no acts remaining in the competition. She told Dermot: "I will be the only impartial judge!"

The X Factor continues next Saturday at 6.40pm on ITV1.
