Barnsley singer Holly Tandy is through to the fourth week of live shows after a night that saw her performance receive mixed reviews from the X Factor judges.

The 16 year old performed a version of One More Try as part of the talent show's George Michael week. Unlike previous weeks she did not receive wholehearted support from the judging panel. Simon Cowell told her that he thought the performance seemed old fashioned saying it "doesn't work for me in the real world." But her own mentor Sharon Osborne said she had sung with great love and emotion: "It was spectacular and you look like a goddess."

Watch Holly's performance again:

Holly received enough public votes to make it through to week four of the live shows when the theme will be Crazy In Love. The remaining ten contestants have been told that next week will be a double elimination on each night with two acts expected to leave on both Saturday and Sunday.

This weekend's winning act in the public vote was Lloyd Macey who wins the chance to perform alongside Little Mix in Manchester. The act with the fewest votes who left the competition on Sunday night was Alisah Bonaobra from the girls category.
