“X Factor UK” has been continuously making its mark when it comes to producing artists that can compete globally—thanks to the mentors. However, in recent results, fans think that one judge do not belong to the group and it’s none other than Rita Ora.
Fans started to get angry at Ora when she harshly voted out 4th Impact and chose Lauren Murray to stay in the competition.
“For me, I’m going for the person who’s an artist, who can sell records—who’s been proved selling records already on iTunes, who for me I can envision with an album, I knew has an incredible voice and I think standing on your own is way more powerful… I think there’s a future for Lauren.” –Rita Ora
After giving her comments, viewers of the show started to let out their thoughts through Twitter and pointed out that the singer’s comment is senseless and too racist, some even called “X Factor UK” attention to let Ora go home and never come back as a judge and mentor.

I expect @RitaOra to not be the judge next season.. Her comments to 4th impact are uncalled for. Goodluck to your career hope you flop soon

On the other hand, Unreality TV reported that just after the Week 5 elimination, the 25-year-old singer reached out to the four-Filipina sisters. Did she say sorry for her prior comments? –No.
The report says that the singer showed that “there were no ill feelings between her and the girls” as she message them on Twitter and wished them luck.
However, on her “The Xtra Factor” interview, she insisted that “the right person won the sing-off” and thinks that Murray is an “incredible artist which can sell records.”
But then again, in Week 6 Results, Murray was called for the bottom 2 again with Che Chesterman.
Mirror reported that the 25-year-old contestant has become the latest act to say her goodbye to the long-time running singing competition.
The remaining acts and were able to pass in the final three are Reggie N’ Bollie, Louisa Johnson and Chesterman.
