Samantha "Sami" Brookes is from Rhyl. She works in retail. She replaced contestant Goldie Cheung after Cheung left at the end of Judges Houses. She was placed in the bottom two in the third week, along with fellow over Kitty Brucknell. She performed "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" in the final showdown. All judges apart from Tulisa voted to send her home, thus eliminating her from the competition.
