Shock X Factor exit for Treyc

Treyc Cohen has made a shock exit from the X Factor in Sunday night’s results show

The 26-year-old found herself in the bottom two along with Katie Waissel after her rendition of Aerosmith’s Don’t Want To Miss A Thing failed to impress viewers.

Treyc gave a moving version of Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart in the sing-off after being told by Simon Cowell she lacked the “killer instinct” in Saturday night’s live show.

Simon voted to send home Treyc, saying she was the better singer, but adding: “I’m going to base this on what, as a viewer, who I would like to see next week.”

Treyc’s mentor Cheryl Cole refused to choose between her acts while Dannii Minogue voted to send Katie home and Louis Walsh picked Treyc to go.

Tesco checkout worker Mary Byrne escaped the chop despite being named as one of the favourites to leave the competition.

The 50-year-old told the judges she had not been “in the zone” after feeling lonely and missing her daughter.

Katie was also one of the favourites to leave X Factor after her version of No Doubt’s Don’t Speak left Simon and Dannii unimpressed.

Simon said her performance “fell apart in the middle” while Dannii said she sang better under pressure.

But the 24-year-old made it to the last nine acts of the competition despite stumbling over the lyrics of her survival song Please Don’t Give Up On Me. The blonde hopeful ended her “save-me” song by sitting on the stage, pleading the title of the song.
