X Factor 2011: Tulisa in tears as her boy band Nu Vibe are sent home after close call with former favourite Frankie

By ANDREA MAGRATH


Shock near exit: Nu Vibe went up against assumed favourite Frankie Cocozza singing for survival

Gary Barlow was the only judge who boasted that he did not feel nervous ahead of tonight's results on the X Factor.

It seems the Take That judge may have overestimated the female fan base for his contestant Frankie Cocozza, who ended up in the bottom two alongside Nu Vibe.

The teen's survival performance was enough to keep him in the competition though, as only Nu Vibe's mentor Tulisa chose to save the group.

Nu Vibe performed a slowed-down, almost unrecognisable rendition of Cheryl Cole's Promise This.

Tulisa shed tears as she watched her group perform, telling the audience that she was so sad to see the group in this position as she had so much faith in them.

The group, who were thrown together during boot camp after auditioning as solo artists, were graceful in defeat, thanking the judges for the opportunity.

During their chat on the Xtra Factor later, the band nominated Misha B and The Risk as their favourites of the finalists, and Craig as the one to win.

Tears: Tulisa couldn't hide her emotion as the group performed for the last time

The group tweeted after the show: 'Thank you for everything. We've had such a great experience. Sorry we can't perform to you on the X factor again but this is not the last of Nu Vibe.'

Earlier Gary Barlow was shocked when his star contestant Frankie was announced as one of the bottom two acts.


Not good enough: The 18-year-old admitted after last night's show that he feared his performance wasn't good enough

'I can't believe I'm saying this,' Gary said. 'Frankie Cocozza singing for survival,' before Frankie performed I Can't Do This By Myself.

Throughout his song the 18-year-old clearly kept the girls in the audience happy, blowing kisses to his fan base.


Emotional: Tulisa was in tears as her act was sent home, and said she couldn't understand why it had happened


Style wars: Kelly chose a dramatic black gown with a plunging neckline, while Tulisa opted for a short, flirty prom-style frock with a very bust neckline

Tulisa was in tears when she joined her group onstage, telling Dermot that she still believes in them and was confused as to why they had been axed. 'Keep going guys,' she urged.


Glam factor: Viewers were quick to note the female judges' cleavage

The results show kicked off tonight with the finalists first group performance, to Hello by Martin Solveig, which had even the judges dancing in their seats, followed by a standing ovation.

Kelly wore a floor-length black gown with a plunging front that showed off plenty of cleavage,

A sheer body stocking covered her décolletage and torso.
The Destiny's Child star wore her hair in tumbling curls with dramatic dangling earrings and bangles.

Tulisa chose a flirty cream prom-style dress which had Twitter users all commenting on her substantial cleavage.
