X Factor 2011: Amelia Lily voted back in

[[Amelia Lily]] was voted back in the X Factor after winning the public vote tonight.

The 17-year-old went up against [[2 Shoes]], [[James Michael]] and [[Jonjo Kerr]] to win a spot back in the show, after being voted out in the first week of live shows.

Amelia told Dermot O’Leary: “I’ve been so emotional backstage, I can’t believe I’m back in, thanks everyone for voting for me.”

Amelia has been the favourite to return since the twist was announced on Thursday morning, after Frankie Cocozza was axed from the show on Tuesday for breaking one of the show’s “golden rules”.

Amelia’s first task was to close the show by singing the Queen classic The Show Must Go On.

Girls’ mentor [[Kelly Rowland]] now has three acts in the competition, while Gary has two, Tulisa and Louis have one..

Has Amelia done enough to see her through to next week’s live show? we’ll find out in the live results show tomorrow.
