Bullied: Kitty Brucknell, who performed a Bjork hit, explained how she almost left the show due to negative attention she's received
The theme on tonight's X Factor was love and heartache and Kitty Brucknell has certainly experienced heartache.
The 26-year-old singer wowed the judges again tonight with a rendition of Bjork's It's Oh So Quiet, but before that she spoke out about bullies and the reception she received on last week's show.
'The people who booed me last week should be ashamed of themselves,' she said.
Speaking up: the blonde hopeful said that those who bullied her on last week's show should be 'ashamed of themselves.'
'Anyone who's ever been booed knows how horrible it feels.'
The blonde hopeful also explained that after all the bad press she received about her performance last week, something good also came out of it - a message from Queen guitarist, Brian May, who told her that he loved her performance of the band's hit last week.
She also revealed that she almost quit the show because of all the bullying that she's endured.
Different: The blonde hopeful always manages to wow the judges yet she was booed on last week's show
'It was the first time I have been bullied like that since I was a child. It took me to a very dark place,' she added.
But she certainly wasn't in a dark place as she performed tonight and finished the show on a high.
Singing Bjork's It's Oh So Quiet, Kitty was dressed as Alice in Wonderland, wearing a white dress with a bright blonde wig and a black headband and started her performance by laying on the stage which was adorned with giant playing cards.

She then moved onto a large lit up dining table and was joined by dancers that included the mad hatter, the white rabbit and other characters from the famous Lewis Carrol novel.
And even though she left Tulisa feeling 'speechless' once again Kitty proved that she can sing and is a strong contender in the competition.
Dressed in white: Kitty didn't exactly look like Alice in Wonderland in her tutu dress and white boots
But before her there were eleven other performances of love and heartache.
First up to perform was boy band Nu Vibe who chose to sing their own version of U2's eighties hit, With Or Without You.
