The brunette beauty is the latest contestant to leave the popular ITV talent show on the second week of the live shows on Sunday night (05.11.17) during the viva Latina-themed weekend, after she performed Jennifer Lopez's 2016 hit 'Ain't Your Mama'.

But Tracy is not bitter about her departure and has admitted she is "privileged" she got this far in the competition, although she insists she will continue singing "until [she] reaches the top".

Speaking to Dermot, Tracy - who belonged to mentor Nicole Scherzinger's Overs category - said: "Well I am privileged to make the second week. Because I have had the bestest week. I will not stop, I will keep going and going and going until I reach the top."

And the show's host has admitted he is "gutted" to see Tracy go because he believes she was "one of the most loved" contenders.

He said: "Honestly one of our most loved competitors in the house. We are gutted."

And Nicole also said her and fellow judge Simon Cowell are also sad Tracy has been voted off because she was the "heart" of the show.

The brunette beauty said: "Simon just said 'She is the heart of the show' . And she is still going to be the heart of the show."

Earlier in the evening Kevin Davy went head to head with Saturday night's (04.11.17) champion Rak-Su to bag the money can't buy prize of a studio session with a legendary producer, and a chance to work on and record their own single.

Rak-Su performed their own track, while the French heartthrob wowed crowds with his version of Carlos Santana's 1999 hit track 'Smooth'.

But it was Kevin who made an impression on the public and saw him nab this week's highly coveted treat.

When Dermot announced the verdict, he said: "The person with the most votes and your Sunday night champion is Kevin Davy.

"Kevin congratulations, well done. We will see you next week".

Following Kevin's success this evening Simon Cowell was quick to remind Kevin's mentor, Nicole, of her feelings when she was given the Overs category to mentor.

The mogul said: "I remember when someone on my left was sulky when they got this category."

However, the 'Right There' hitmaker denied the businessman's claim.

She said: "I actually fought to have this group."

At the end of tonight's episode Dermot revealed next weekend's show will have a twist, as there will be a double elimination on both Saturday (11.11.17) and Sunday (12.11.17).
