The result show revealed that Aiden Grimshaw is the least vote getter this week although his rendition of Elton John's 'Rocket Man' was praised by Simon Cowell.

Famous before winning, Katie Waissel dodges another elimination this week on "" when the voting result revealed that the public still wants to see her another week. Waissel's stay means Aiden Grimshaw has to leave the competition after a head-to-head sing-off.

For two weeks in a row, Waissel was placed in the bottom two along with Belle Amie and Treyc Cohen respectively but she controversially survived though she often went off-key and forgot the lyrics of the song. This week's bottom two position is her fourth in the competition.

The judges were equally divided between Waissel and Grimshaw with defending Waissel as her own apprentice and not giving any reason for his choice. Louis Walsh backed up 's apprentice, saying Grimshaw has more potential than Waissel.

When host Dermot O'Leary revealed that Grimshaw is the one leaving, Waissel clutched her head in awe. "I'm really grateful people kept me in. I'm surprised - I've been in the bottom two a lot now," she said. "Then there were people out there who see me for who I am, and I want to thank them."

Meanwhile, Grimshaw was looking visibly upset, telling the crowd "You win some, you lose some." When asked by O'Leary what he would do next, he answered shortly, "Have a beer." Minogue later wrote on Twitter, "My utmost respect to Aiden. I have loved working with him on 'X Factor'. TeamMinogue will miss him I and wish him the VERY BEST! Dx."
