Shelley Smith from Farringdon in Devon was the first to fall victim to X Factor's Flash Vote.
She was the performer getting the fewest votes in a 10 minute window after Saturday night's live performances, which immediately condemned her to taking part in the sing-offs.
Shelley told Dermot O'Leary: "I'm just going to sing my little heart out. I'm just going to try best, that's all I can do. I've got so much more to give."
And that proved to be the case. Shelley's performance in Sunday night's sing-off was enough for the judges to save her - rather than Lorna Simpson, who polled the fewest votes on Sunday.
Here Shelley is, singing Jennifer Hudson's 'One Night Only', to survive to sing again.

Luke Friend, the 17 year old from Teignmouth in Devon, will continue his battle for survival tonight in the live finals of X-Factor.
It's going to be another nerve-wracking weekend for all our X Factor contestants in the second weekend of live shows.
