End of the road for 'X Factor's Storm and Diva Fever

Monday October 18, 2010

The dream is over for Storm Lee and Diva Fever.

On Sunday, both acts were voted off The X Factor in a double elimination.

The second week of live shows saw Louis' act Storm, Simon's wildcard group Diva Fever and his girl ensemble Belle Amie in the bottom three.

Red-haired rocker Storm, who sang Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run, was the first to go after receiving the fewest public votes.

That left the two groups to go head-to-head in the sing-off.

And it wasn't good news for the boys. Craig Saggers and Joe Al-Smadi's rendition of Gloria Gaynor's disco hit I Will Survive didn't impress the judges enough on the night, and it was Belle Amie who survived the vote.

The first three judges, Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole, all chose to save the girls, - singing Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry - meaning groups-mentor Simon didn’t have to choose between his two acts.

The music mogul did however apologise to Diva Fever, who said they weren't happy with their Saturday night song choice, Barbra Streisand by Duck Sauce.

"I accept full responsibility," he told the duo. "I let you down and I'm sorry."
