After the judges suggest that she may need to take some time to find "her own voice", the contestant launches into an attack on cameramen and the set, and yells expletives at the panel.
Zoe's audition, which includes covers of Pink's 'So What' and an Emeli Sandé song, gets a mixed reaction from the panel, who are concerned about her likeness to the US pop star.
"I like your energy, I think you have a pretty good voice, [but] I think you need to take your time to find yourself as an artist," says Nicole Scherzinger.
Louis Walsh describes Zoe as "average", while Gary Barlow comments: "You need to go away and find what sounds good for your voice. At the moment, you sound like every other average singing voice."
Before the judges' verdicts are confirmed, Zoe accuses the panel of a stitch-up, shouting: "You told me to sing a Pink song!"
Tulisa Contostavlos replies: "We never told you to sing a Pink song... Did you hear that come out of our mouths?"
Walsh adds: "It was your audition and you messed up."

The young daughter calls the four judges "w**kers" and "c**ts" and then heads off stage to push cameras and start attacking the set. She is escorted away from the backstage area in hysterics.
> X Factor's Wildest Ever Auditions
During the press launch for the ninth series, the judges and producers denied that the audition was in any way set up. Producers insisted that Zoe had five songs to choose from just like every other act on the show. They said that Zoe had selected her songs with production, but insisted that it was "100%" her choice to sing a Pink track.
The X Factor series nine starts tonight at 8pm on ITV1.
