Over 2 million votes were called in but Diana was beaten by Eoghan Quigg
Diana, 17, got the least number of public votes in Week 9, which featured no sing-off between the bottom two.
It was entirely down to the viewers – not the judges – to decide who stayed and who didn’t.
The teenagers embraced and Diana cried when Dermot called out Eoghan‘s name as the 3rd finalist.
Cheryl Cole and Alexandra Burke were also in tears.
‘I thought Diana was going to win,’ Alex admitted.
