Well, well, well, tonight was a huge shock on The X Factor. Simon Cowell lost all credibility and as a result, Lucie Jones sensationally got booted out of the show in favour of John and Edward Grimes.
Lucie sang a beautiful version of One Moment In Time while Jedward performed Robbie Williams’ track, Rock DJ in the sing-off. It was all looking good for Lucie, as tens of thousands (including me) on twitter joined in saying goodbye to the twins. But as they say, it’s not over until the fat lady sings, and the fat lady this week happened to be Simon Cowell.
Jedward had two votes to leave the competition, with Cowell having the casting vote. If this had been down to pure talent, Lucie Jones should have danced off into the sunset, but Simon Cowell, or Simon Coward as he should be called, decided to go to deadlock, which sealed Lucie’s fate. John & Edward had more votes than Lucie, meaning she was off home.
As she was booted off The X Factor, she instantly jumped to the twins’ defence, saying: “I’m gutted by the boys deserve to be here, they work harder than anyone.” – NO LUCIE!! You deserve to be there, not them!!!
Cowell, who only three weeks ago made a big deal how he would be on the first jet out of Britain if the twins won the show, hailed their performance of the Hollywood soundtrack. “It was possibly more entertaining than anything you have done before. Well done.“

So Lucie Jones got the boot on The X Factor Live Show Week 5 – Was it the right decision? Is Simon Cowell to blame for not making a decision based on the talent alone? Leave your comments below…
