Cher survives 'X Factor' sing off against Paije

Monday November 22, 2010

There was more shock this week in X Factor as Katie Waissell sailed through to the next round, leaving Cher Lloyd and Paije Richardson to battle it out in the bottom two.

It was the first time both singers had faced elimination, with Cher singing Shakespear's Sister track Stay, while Paije performed Sam Brown hit Stop.

But it was Paije who was voted off after Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh named him as the act to send home. Dannii Minogue - his mentor - was the only one to select Cher as the act to leave.

Speaking on Daybreak on Monday morning, Paije said: "I’m not too upset.

"Obviously it hurts a little bit to be out, but it’s the nature of the show and you’ve just got to keep moving with it.'

Of Cher, he said: "She's a great talent and she deserves her place. I'm proud of her and I hope she does well."
