The singer was told she was in the bottom two during the results show, while Shelley learned she was at risk after a flash vote at the end of Saturday's show.
As Shelley had already received the lowest amount of public votes, the Judges were told they were unable to take the vote to deadlock.
If they were split in their decision, the contestant that lost the flash vote - in this case Shelley - would automatically leave the competition.
However Over 25s mentor Sharon Osbourne ensured that it would not be necessary as she refused to choose between her two acts.
When asked by host Dermot O'Leary to pick which act to go home, she simply replied: "Dermot, I abstain."
Lorna performed a rendition of Faith Hill's 'There You'll Be' and Shelley sang Jennifer Hudson's 'One Night Only'.
"There were two brilliant singers in the bottom two tonight," said Louis Walsh. "They are amazing singers with brilliant song choices."
"That was a fantastic sing off," added Gary Barlow.
There is a control to your voice that you haven't found yet, but you do have an amazing voice.
Gary Barlow to Lorna Simpson
He told Shelley: "If you had sung like that last night, you would not have been in the bottom two tonight.
"I think song choice is key for you."
Shelley sang a rendition of Heart's 'Alone' during Saturday's show, but Gary felt her voice needed to be more "modernised".
He added: "What everybody is doing here tonight is a modern twist on the 80s and I felt you were stuck in the 80s."
While commenting that Lorna had some tuning issues that she needed to deal with, he chose to save her from leaving the competition.
But the 26-year-old lost her place after Louis and Nicole Scherzinger both saved Shelley from elimination.
Nicole told Lorna: "You have blown me away and have impressed me so much with your voice, you have no limits."
After learning she was the first act to leave the X Factor, Lorna told Dermot that while she was upset, she never thought she would make it past the first audition.
"It just goes to show you that dreams do come true," she added.
Lorna's mentor Sharon was still visibly shocked at having her act leave, telling Dermot: "For once in my life, I'm stumped."
Sunday's results show opened with a group performance from all 12 finalists who sang Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'.
Viewers also watched pop sensation Ellie Goulding take to the X Factor stage in a very revealing gold dress to perform her huge hit 'Burn', while iconic singer Cher made her return to the show for the first time in ten years.
Next week the remaining 11 acts will perform again for the X Factor Judges in a 'Love and Heartache' themed show.
The X Factor returns to UTV on Saturday and Sunday from 8pm.
