Viewers ecstatic after "arrogant" X Factor contestant gets the boot

Fans of the show didn't like the singer's attitude

X Factor viewers were delighted after one particular contestant ruffled their feathers on Saturday's show - and was sent home.

Jodie Woolcott angered the public after refusing to swap her lines with her fellow contestant Liia during the Bootcamp challenge.

Aidan Martin, Liia, Caroline Widdows and Jodie were put together to sing Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson's song Symphony, but were constantly bickering.

Jodie wanted to make the performance just about her.

"At the end of the day, it's a competition, and your friends at bootcamp are your competition," she told the cameras. "If you want world domination as a popstar, you need to show them who you are as an artist."

I want to make sure the judges are looking at me and only me.

Adding: "I want to make sure the judges are looking at me and only me."

While on stage, she said: "Sharon said in my audition that I need backing dancers and they're here now, you can see them."

But viewers did not like the way she treated the rest of the group.

Laughing, one said: "Jodie Woolcott needs to take a long hard look in the mirror. Who the hell would want to be her... absolute embarrassment."

Surprisingly, Jodie made in through to the next stage but Liia's experience came to an end.

Jodie then had her solo audition and she certainly proved that she was confident.

"I can see myself in the future being a worldwide popstar. Imagine everyone hearing my voice, it'd be amazing," she said before stepping on stage.

Talking to judges Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell, she said:  "I don't just stand there and sing, I give a performance and I've got what it takes."

Announcing her song, Me Too, by Meghan Trainor, she cheekily added: "If I was you, I'd want to be me too."

Nicole Scherzinger seemed unsure with her attitude: "Very confident, Missy, have some fun."

Unfortunately for Jodie, she didn't impress the panel, with the Pussycat Doll's star declaring: "I don't think that was the right song, there was no fun in it. This is it. This is the end of the road."

Twitter users were loving it.

"Seriously, Jodie Woolcott is so arrogant!!! So happy she's out of the X Factor," said one.

Another elated viewer said: "Always amazing when the bully gets taken down a notch. Good decision on Jodie."

Describing Jodie in hashtags, a third said she had an "awful attitude".

She's probably not too confident now, is she!
