It is official; Sam Lavery has officially been eliminated from the hit TV show X Factor. The battle came to a close when she battled toe to toe with Ryan Lawrie.
Sharon Osbourne decided that she was going to change her mind and end the deadlock, forcing Sam to leave the show. During their final decision, the air was so thick you could cut it with a knife.
The battle itself was interesting, Sam decided, ironically enough, that she was going to sing Mary J Blige’s song, “No More Drama.” Ryan, on the other hand, decided to sing “Oasis’ Stop Crying Your Eyes Out.” Both performances received massive support from the audience.
When push came to shove, all of the judges had to make a decision. Simon Cowell, who has worked with Sam through the process as a mentor, decided to send home Ryan.
Nicole Scherzinger was up next. She thought that Ryan did a tad bit better than Sam, resulting in her opting to send Sam home.
Louis Walsh voted, without much hesitation, to send home Ryan. Suddenly, it was all on Sharon. She had a tough time making her decision.
She was quoted as saying, “You know, this is so…at this point, Ryan you have improved so much, that was a great safe song, it was brilliant. I don’t know what to do, I honestly don’t know what to do.”
Eventually, she went with the choice to send home Sam. Now there is a deadlock, the suspense is killing everyone in the room, especially the two stars.
The vote went public and the audience decided who was going to go home since they could not come to a unanimous decision. Sam ended up with less popular votes and had to exit the show.
All it all, it has been a great season. We can all look forward to the future of X Factor. Surely, we will see a future for the very talented Sam too.
