Fernandez-Versini chose: With the eliminations of Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmine in week two and Lola Saunders in week four, Platt was Fernandez-Versini's last remaining act in the competition.
The six candidates at judges' houses were: Fleur East, Helen Fulthorpe, Ben Haenow, Jay James, Lizzy Pattinson, and Stevi Ritchie.
Cowell chose: In 2005, she was on the second series of the show as a member of the girl group Addictiv Ladies.
On 22 February 2015, it was announced that Faustini had signed a record deal with RCA Records and would be heading to Los Angeles to record his debut album, due for release later in 2015.
Quickenden landed in the bottom two in week 3 against Only The Young and was eliminated, with only his mentor Mel B voting to save him. After the series ended, the voting figures revealed that Only the Young had more public votes than Quickenden.
The eleventh UK series of The X Factor began on ITV on 30 August 2014. Mel B mentored the Boys, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini mentored the Girls, Simon Cowell mentored the Over 25s and Louis Walsh mentored the Groups.
The 12 chosen finalists were Paul Akister, Andrea Faustini, Jake Quickenden, Chloe Jasmine, Stephanie Nala, Lauren Platt, Fleur East, Ben Haenow, Jay James, Blonde Electra, Stereo Kicks and Only The Young. Contestants in this category are male soloists aged between 14 and 25.
However, after the series ended, it was revealed that Ritchie had received more public votes than Faustini.
So, had it gone to deadlock, Faustini would have been eliminated.
However, in week 9, she was in the bottom two with Andrea Faustini and was eliminated after only Fernandez-Versini voted to save her, finishing in fourth place and becoming the last of her acts to leave the competition. She was eliminated during week four after landing in the sing-off with Stereo Kicks and receiving fewer public votes than them, as the result was deadlocked. The 'Over 25s' category was mentored by Simon Cowell.
