I'm not so sure, there seems to be more than this than meets the eye. I guess we'll just have to wait until the afternoon to find out, but I wouldn't be surprised if she does quit.

Anyone know when the tour places start to be up for grabs, really can't wait for Rylan to go once he is sealed on the tour
Isn't it the top 8? So, if Lucy stays, it'll be the survivors of this week's show. If Lucy quits we'll have the top eight.

well Lucy has gone

I think its got more to do with artistic differences (throwing toys) than any other rumor going around

It's just been announced on Twitter that she is too unwell to perform, X Factor confirmed it (on their Twitter).

Shame... she should have at least had the chance to go out to the public vote

Well it is sad that she had to pull out of the competition, but she wasn't one of my favourites. I think it was unfair on Jade however as she was arguably also too ill to perform with her vocal issues, but was told to perform.

Tulisa down to one act and it's the guaranteed finalist and probable winner

Hard to believe Nicole is the only one who hasn't lost an act, hopefully that will change with a certain clown joke act going tomorrow

In all honesty, Lucy wasn't right for this show and if she had gone on Britain's Got Talent she more than likely would have done much better and won that show

I still think it was more a strop than illness, but down to 8 we go in any case

So with 8 acts left now, that pretty much confirms the line-up for the 2013 X Factor Tour!

Not only that, that clears a huge path for Ella to make the final. And I think Rylan is going to be set up to go out this weekend.

It'll certainly be strange watching 7 all-male acts and then Ella as the only girl left. Bit like Stacey Soloman's year again.

Yes indeed and we know how far she got, but then again, there was no stopping Joe Mcelderry from winning.

Hi everyone, thanks for a great thread, Zack

I'm sorry Lucy's had to pull out. At least she was something different on XF. Still, I have no doubt that she will have no trouble making a living from her music after the springboard of XF.

I'm still hoping for a James win, (but I suspect Ella will get it).

Hoping and praying Baloney or Rylan are out tonight.

No problem! I wasn't really a fan of Lucy, but I do agree that it's a shame she had to pull out. Her songs do seem to have been successful so far on iTunes even if they aren't to my tastes..

I guess I'm supporting Jahmene now, I don't really like any of the other contestants, but Chris or Rylan leaving would be a great scenario, though I reckon a band could leave too.

It's happened before that - when Nikitta was voted off in week 5 Leona was the only girl left
