Bella Ferraro’s X Factor dream is over after she was voted off the show during last night’s Semi Final.
Bella found herself up against The Collective in the bottom two, which was a bit of a shock considering these two acts have received the most publicity over the show’s run.
The contestants were forced to sing for their lives, and Bella delivered a stunning rendition of Sarah McLachlan’s Angel.
The Collective performed Use Somebody, which showed off their vocals. These boys are always best during a stripped back performance without sets and dancing, and this song definitely allowed them to demonstrate their talent.
It came down to the judges, with Ronan and Nat both voting to save their own artists. Mel voted to save Bella, and then Guy chose to send the competition into deadlock and let the viewer vote decide. And that meant it was time to say goodbye to the girl who opened The X Factor 2012 with her performance of Skinny Love.
Bella was very gracious in defeat, and delivered a cheery thank you speech to her supporters. This won’t be the last that we see of Bella Ferraro!
The Collective will face off against Samantha Jade and Jason Owen in the Grand Final next Monday. Samantha is definitely shaping up as the winner of the entire competition, after her version of Heartless hit number one on iTunes.
