X Factor 2012 Results: Tulisa blasts ‘ridiculous’ decision to vote off Ella Henderson

by Lisa McGarry

Tulisa Contostavlos is not a happy bunny!

The X Factor judge saw the last of her X Factor singers eliminated from the ITV show this evening, despite the fact that Ella Henderson was one of the favourites to win.

Christopher Maloney and Rylan Clark had been tipped to leave the series but sailed through to next week’s show, as Ella and James Arthur found themselves in the bottom two.

Louis and Tulisa voted to save Ella, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger backed Arthur and so the show was driven to deadlock and the talented teen was sent home.

Speaking after the result was announced a very incensed Tulisa blasted people for not voting for her protege and said:

“It is ridiculous this situation, it is ridiculous!”

She added:

“People did not vote, people thought she was safe and did not pick up the phone. There was nothing wrong about her performances each week, that performance was one of the best she has ever done.”

Ella seemed to take the news with a bit more grace and insisted that she isn’t upset with any of her fellow acts. She said:

“Do you know what, this year the talent on the show is incredible and everybody deserves to be in that final – everybody.”

She added:

“I just want to say thank you, I wouldn’t be where I am right now if it wasn’t for this show.”

She spoke about her highlights so far, continuing:

“Just meeting people…. the contestants are great… and performing on this stage. I have loved every minute of it. It has given me so much confidence, not just as a performer but I have grown so much as a person and I will take that with me.”

Did you agree with tonight’s result? Did Ella deserve to leave? Leave your comments below….
