She was booted off the show in a shocking turn of events only a week ago, but Ella Henderson proves once again that she doesn't need X Factor.
The 16-year-old songstress caused a stir among the public and the music industry as she was voted off the talent show, but it didn't take long for her to get back to what she does best: performing.
Instead of standing on the X Factor stage on Saturday night, the blonde singer joined Olly Murs at London nightclub G-A-Y on for an exclusive gig.

Ella looked in her element as she climbed the stage in a gold sequined frock that showed off her star quality.
With her long brown locks pinned up in her usual bouffant hairstyle, the 16-year-old cosied up to Olly backstage and chatted to his Xtra Factor co-host Caroline Flack, who attended the gig straight after the live show to support the two pop stars.
The young singer only left the show last week, but it has been said she already started a bidding war between a handful of record companies who are all desperate to sign her.

One of these companies is said to be Simon Cowell's Syco, as the music mogul was reportedly outraged the talented star was booted off X Factor.
But as Ella's manager and father, Sean Henderson, is left to deal with the details, the star herself said that all she wants is to release an album with self penned songs.
Olly Murs also had a lot to celebrate on Saturday, as his new single Troublemaker is taking the charts by storm.
