The X Factor: Ally Brooke Performs While Grieving for Her Grandfather

The show must go on.

Ally Brooke, a member of Simon Cowell's girl group Fifth Harmony on The X Factor, took the stage Wednesday night despite her grief over the death of her grandfather.

"This is been the hardest thing that I have ever gone through," the singer, 19, told reporters after the show.

Brooke – along with Fifth Harmony members Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui, Normani Hamilton and Camila Cabello – sang Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," and that's just what her grandfather would have wanted.

"I was blessed enough to talk to my grandfather the night before he passed and he told me that everything was going to be okay and I know he wanted me continue and do my best, be happy, and that's what keeps me going," she said.

A three-year legal battle abruptly came to an apparent end for the Spears family.

A Los Angeles judge threw out Sam Lutfi's entire lawsuit on Thursday after attorneys for Britney Spears and her family argued that he hadn't proven his case after six days of testimony.

Lutfi, 38, a onetime confidante of the singer, sued Britney for unpaid fees, her dad Jamie Spears for allegedly punching him, and mom Lynne Spears for purportedly defaming him in her 2008 book.

Britney Spears's Mom Lynne Recounts Painful Times at Trial

Originally posted 10/26/2012 09:15PM

Back in July 2007, Britney Spears drove to the Southern California set of Zoey 101, her sister Jamie Lynn's show, to deliver a note to their mom: Stay away from me and my children.

Lynne Spears briefly relived that painful moment Friday in her first appearance on the witness stand in a libel trial in which Britney's self-described former manager Sam Lutfi is suing Lynne for defaming him in her 2008 book Through the Storm.

Lynne described a complicated relationship with Lutfi spanning less than a year. The pair spoke "hundreds" of times, Lynne said, and it was Lutfi who brought mother and daughter together in a tearful reunion at Britney's Malibu home three months after that note was delivered.

As Lynne calmly testified about the reconciliation, Lutfi, sitting in the courtroom audience, sobbed and wiped tears away.
