X Factor: Beverley Trotman voted off by public

On the "X Factor" public results vote off Beverley Trotman, girl group Hope avoids elimination once again.

X Factor: Beverley Trotman voted off by public The girl group "Hope" could turn into the worst nightmare of the British bookmakers, after they survived "X Factor" elimination, facing it for the third straight time. Beverley Trotman and Hope ended up at the bottom two last night, but the judges' votes tied for the first time and who's going home had to be decided by the popular vote. Beverley sang the "Without You", and Hope did the Christina Aguilera hit "Hope". Their mentors naturally voted for each of their singers, Dannii Minogue voted to eliminate Hope, but Sharon Osbourne supported the girl group and tied the judges. "I'm not sure if people will understand why I've made this decision," said Shannon, who voted last week against Hope. At the end, Beverley Trotman got the least votes from the X Factor viewers and was eliminated from the show and we are down to only five contestants now.

 "I've sung great songs for the past six weeks and I think I've sung them really well, to the point that every megastar that's come onto the show, when they've been asked who was your favorite, they've all said my name. I can't ask for more than that," said Beverley Trotman after the X Factor results were in and vowed to anything to keep her dream of become a star alive.

 This week's X Factor controversy is revolving around the surviving group Hope, after accusations that they are receiving special treatment from producers. According to some publications in the British press, Hope have been given extra rehearsal time with choreographer Brian Friedman and the show's vocal coach. This has not been proven yet, but was posted in the Daily Star Sunday, citing an insider.

 Eliminated Beverley Trotman was listed at the bottom of the odds table at the U.K. licensed online bookmaker Bet 365 with odds on winning the show at 12/1. Last week, Hope was listed as the underdog to win X Factor with odds 14/1 and remains at the bottom after yesterday's show, now with odds 33/1. If Hope continues to dodge the bullet, the bookies could be in serious trouble. Rhydian Roberts, however, is still the favorite, with odds slashed this weekend from 1/2 all the way to 2/7. Here is the complete list of betting odds on the X Factor, as posted by Bet 365:

Rhydian Roberts - 2/7
Niki Evans - 6/1
Same Difference - 15/2
Leon Jackson - 10/1
Hope - 33/1
