Cher Lloyd has been voted off 'The X Factor' tonight.

Cher Lloyd has been voted off 'The X Factor' tonight.

She received the fewest votes from the public after singing a duet with Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.

Speaking to Dermot O Leary after their performance, the American rapper described Lloyd as a "true talent".

He has already said he would love to sign Cher if she did not win on Sunday.

The feisty 17-year-old was the bookies favourite to win in the early stages with her unique grime-style, but her popularity has stalled and she has been in the bottom two twice.

As the only one of the final four to survive a gruelling sing-off, Lloyd delt that the writing was on the wall.

At Thursday's press conference the student from Malvern said: "I do expect to be going. I know I'm not going to win it, come on, I'm the rapper."

She was dubbed Cheryl Cole's "mini-me" and has an urban style and attitude to make Simon Cowell nervous.
