X Factor: Overs category to be scrapped?

Some Twitter users have suggested the 'Overs' category should be scrapped after Melanie Masson was voted off the show on Sunday night.   
The category, mentored by Gary Barlow, has lost two acts in the first two weeks of the live shows. Tweets poured in after the results were announced, many of them saying the 'Overs' category should be scapped altogether as most people who vote are under 30 and less likely to choose older acts.
But Melanie Masson, who was voted out Sunday after battling it out with boyband District 3, defended these statements saying, "Overs gave people belief to go after their dreams no matter what their age was. Whether you're a plumber or a nurse - you don't have to be a singer - if you want to do something you still can."   
The 44 year-old, who performed her rendition of INXS' 'Never Tear Us Apart', also said she wasn't bitter about leaving the show when acts like Rylan Clarke still remained.
She said: "If you heard him sing the start of Back For Good he has got a nice voice. He might surprise some people in future. I think he's turning things around. I think there's a lot of affection for him. A lot of the negativity has turned around."
She also denied judge Gary Barlow wanted to leave the show after losing two acts in the first two live shows. The Take That singer walked off stage last week as Carolynne Poole lost out to Ryaln Clarke. Melanie added: "He's not the sort of person to walk out on his acts. I think as along as he has Kye Sones and Chris Maloney he won't desert them, he'll stay for them."
