Ending up in the sing-off during the X Factor live show is bad enough – but when your own mentor forgets your name, well, that's just rock bottom.

Thankfully the night picked up from there, and Saara kept her place in the competition after a split vote from the judges ensured deadlock.
Small mercies, eh?
