Singer Alisha Bennett has become the latest act to be voted off ITV1's talent show The X Factor.
Alisha Bennett was forced into a head-to-head contest with Hope
The 23-year-old receptionist from north London lost out in a "sing-off" performance against girl group Hope.
Bennett, who was inspired to join the show after seeing Leona Lewis win last year's series, was called a "class act" by mentor and judge Sharon Osbourne.
After the show, she insisted her career was not over yet. "Now I've started, I just want to keep on going," she said.
"I don't want to stop," she told a press conference on Sunday.
"If anything, it has made me stronger. I really want to get somewhere with this. Singing, presenting, face modelling, whatever you want me to do, I'm there. This is not the end of the road for me."
Adding that she was "on fire", Bennett said: "I went to the producers' office last night and said, 'Give me a job.' I haven't come to this situation to go back to normality."
Saturday's X Factor was viewed by 8.5 million people, while BBC rival Strictly Come Dancing attracted 8.9 million.
But the unofficial overnight figures also showed that towards the end of the show, 9.6 million were tuned into X Factor's main programme, compared with Strictly Come Dancing's peak of 9.5 million.
As well as Hope, brother-sister duo Same Difference and solo performers Beverley Trotman, Leon Jackson, Niki Evans and Rhydian Roberts remain in the series.
