Ruth Lorenzo Voted Off X Factor On American Night

by | 30 November 2008

Spanish singer Ruth Lorenzo became the eighth contestant to be voted off The X Factor as the hopefuls performed a series of American hits.

The 26-year-old left the ITV1 show after receiving the least number of votes.

Diana Vickers, Alexandra Burke, Eoghan Quigg and boyband JLS all advance to the semi-finals.

"I fought with all my heart, with everything I had. And this doesn't end here," said Lorenzo after her exit.

"This is the beginning of my dream."

"All I can say is thank you so much. I never ever dreamed of this ever," she added, before a rendition of Bon Jovi's Always.

Her mentor Dannii Minogue paid tribute to Lorenzo's "incredible vocal".

"She was the most beautiful person to work with. She's going to be a friend forever," the judge said.

Britney Spears performed her hit Womanizer on the Saturday night episode while Miley Cyrus also took to the stage with 7 Things.
