Paije loses out to Cher in X-Factor sing off
Paije Richardson lost out to Cher Lloyd in last night’s sing off on the X-Factor after the two acts ended up in the bottom following the public vote.
Despite the disappointment at being booted off the popular ITV talent contest, down to earth Paije admitted he wasn’t “too upset” by the judges’ decision to axe him from the show.
The singer, who turned 20 this week, appeared on Daybreak this morning for an exclusive interview and vowed to keep working hard in order to gain as much experience as possible in the music industry.
Paije and early favourite Cher found themselves in the bottom two following the public vote after Saturday’s Beatles themed show. Katie Waissel who’s hung onto her place in the competition despite being in the bottom two four times, was the first act named through to next week’s show. Controversial Brazilian born singer Wagner, also made it through to next week’s show, despite being panned by the judges.
Speaking to Daybreak presenters Christine Bleakley and Adrian Chiles, Paije tipped Liverpudlian Rebecca Ferguson to win this year’s X-Factor, saying that the mother-of-two believes in herself “100%.”
The entire panel of X-Factor judges which includes Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole all agreed that neither Cher nor Paije deserved to be in the bottom two following their Saturday night performances.
17-year-old Cher has also spoken out in the wake of Paije’s exit to say he didn’t deserve to lose his place in the show.
