X Factor 2011 Results: Amelia Lily finishes in third place

[[Amelia Lily]] has finished in third place in The X Factor 2011.

The 17-year-old was voted off the show during Saturday night’s final after receiving the lowest number of votes from the British public.

[[Marcus Collins]] and [[Little Mix]] will compete in the second half of the final on Sunday evening in a bid to be crowned the winner of X Factor 2011.

Amelia, who tonight performed Christina Aguilera’s Ain’t No Other Man and the Tina Turner hit River Deep Mountain High with her mentor [[Kelly Rowland]], was voted out in the first week but was voted back in by the public following the departure of [[Frankie Cocozza]].

Amelia said: “Can I just say thank you to everyone who voted me back into the competition. My ambition was to get to the final and I did it so thank you, you haven’t seen the last of Amelia Lily.

Kelly added: “She’s 17 and look how bright her future is. She’s an incredible vocalist and a star!”

The final continues on Sunday, 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITV1 HD.
