Rylan Clark has insisted he doesn't want to be an X Factor novelty act.
The 23-year-old escaped elimination on Sunday night, avoiding the bottom two after his dance mashup on Saturday's performance show.
Rylan insisted that he wanted to be taken as a serious singer, but confessed he doesn't have a chance of winning the show.
"If I was to win, this country would pshyically sink into the sea," he said.
Rylan continued: "But I'm not a novelty act like past contestants Wagner or Kitty Brucknell.
"It's something I want to do and I'm not going to be bullied out of it."
Rylan has already gained many celeb fans, including glamour model Katie Price.
He said: "We're in contact all the time and it's nice to have someone there who's been through it all.
" She's the queen of getting s**t thrown at her."
The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.
This weekend will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme.
