Boring Invincible Hero: Oh so very much averted, while there are only two other winners in all three main X Factor versions that were ever in the Bottom 2, she was in it not one, not two, but three times! Despite many feeling she deserved the win, most were surprised she pulled it off.
Shocking Elimination: Despite having an audition that got millions of views (which is much much harder to get from being mostly known in Australia compared to the UK or United States) and considered by many to be the front runner, she lost in the Semifinal, just missing out on the Final.
Averted in Week 6 when she appears in Final Showdown and the Judges vote to save her as a majority.
Tempting Fate: The week of her elimination, the final song she sang before the voting was "The Last Day On Earth".
The Chanteuse: The staging and atmosphere for "Saving All My Love For You" was definitely meant to evoke this.
Competence Zone: A rare zigzagged example. While she is older than many of the contestants in her season, she is the youngest of the Overs, and even then is only in that category because it was changed from Over 25s to 24s at super Super bootcamp. But then the other two Overs are eliminated within the first three weeks so she becomes the oldest for the last seven weeks . . . however, it is widely agreed she was at the very least one of the best in her season, regardless of age.
The Cast Showoff: She plays the piano during Week 1 for her performance of "One". Interestingly, this was the only time she did so, a rarity since contestants on these shows who can play instruments will usually play theirs just about every other performance.
Hope Spot: Even moreso than Jiordan the week before; as it was their third time in the bottom two and they were against Taylor Henderson, a front runner who was on his first time. Instead of the judges voting them out straight away, the vote was two to one in their favor . . . until Red Foo took it to deadlock. Even then, it was still a better chance as many thought Taylor would automatically be saved, although it didn't make much of a difference in the end.
Hope Spot: Despite being on her third trip to the bottom two and being considered the likeliest to leave that week, the judges let the vote between her and Third D3gree go to deadlock . . . only for her to have the lowest votes anyway.
Hypercompetent Sidekick: Many noted that her Save Me songs were really good and although she worked well with the songs given to her, she seemed more adept ant song choice than her mentor Red Foo.
Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Averted, the platform for "With Or Without You" was supposed to rotate, but it doesn't. She covers this by turning herself around as she stands up.
Vocal Range Exceeded: During her cover of "Burn", the judges noted she sounded like she was straining for the high notes.
Walking Disaster Area: During Week 3, the platform she was sitting on had a malfunction and didn't rotate. The following week, she sings despite having symptoms of a heart attack just two hours prior. Then, during Week 8, there's a little malfuncion for her band's platform. And yet, she carried it all with dignity.
