The bubbly singer learned she was at risk of leaving the competition on Saturday after the Flash-vote revealed she had received the least amount of public votes when the lines closed after 10 minutes.
Shelley was then pitted against fellow Over 25s contestant Lorna Simpson, choosing Jennifer Hudson's 'One Night Only' as her survival song.
Speaking after the show, the mum-of-one said: "Today was crazy. It's been very up and down for me, one minute I was feeling upbeat and the next I was so emotional.
"But I went out there fighting and I had a cracking song. All I could do was hope and pray the Judges would save me."
After singing her survival song, Judge Gary Barlow told her: "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."
Gary decided to save Lorna from leaving the competition, while Over 25s mentor Sharon Osbourne refused to choose between her two acts.
Luckily for Shelley, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger felt she had a lot more to bring to the competition and therefore saved her from elimination.
During the main show, Shelley sang Heart's 'Alone' for the 80s themed night, but she was told her voice needed to be "modernised" if she wanted to remain in the competition.
Shelley was devastated to learn she would be in the bottom two following the flash vote, and even more upset when her friend Lorna joined her for the sing-off.
"I'm really close to Lorna," she said. "We got to know each other at Bootcamp and we've been on a journey together. I'm so sorry to have been up against her.
"It means everything to still be in this competition," she added.
And now that she knows she will be returning to The X Factor house, Shelley said she is going to be making the most of everything she hasn't enjoyed yet - and first on her list is the indoor pool.
"I haven't been in the swimming pool - and I've been regretting that today, what if I didn't go back?
"I'm going to enjoy things even more now and next Saturday, it's my birthday - so it'll be a double whammy for me. My sassy side will be coming out."
The final 11 contestants - including Shelley - will return to the X Factor stage next Saturday from 8pm on UTV to perform in a 'Love and Heartache' themed show.
