X Factor’s Lyric 145 Stay Positive After Elimination: ‘We’re Not Bummed Out At All’
While many X Factor contestants who get the boot usually talk bad about the judges for making them sing a song they didn’t like, Lyric 145 are staying positive, saying that though they didn’t feel it was their time to go, they will not dwell on the past as the talent show has now opened them the doors to hopefully get signed by a record deal, seeing that many music execs seek talent from shows such as X Factor (LA Reid, for example).
The group were automatically sent home from the show after receiving the lowest amount of votes during the two days that voting lines had been open. The only girl in the group, who goes by the name of Da Queen, explained that she’s not too upset and thinks that she and her friends have many opportunities now that they will definitely keep working together and hopefully prove the public that they had more to offer.
“I’m not bummed out at all,” the singer told E! News backstage. “I do wish we could’ve showed the world what we really could do. But now the door’s open for us to show the world, so I’m excited about that. I can honestly say, if we would’ve been able to do a ‘save me’ song, we would’ve got saved!”
“We literally feel like this is divinity,” Da Queen added. “An experience like this, you have to take out what you can take out from it, and I believe that [our being brought together] is way bigger than any prize we could’ve ever won. We’re really going to do something amazing in the industry.”
