Kye became the latest star to leave the show in Sunday's X Factor 2012 results, after appearing in the bottom two for the second time with Rylan Clark.
The judges once again sent the vote to deadlock, with Kye leaving having received the fewest public votes.
With the deciding vote, Tulisa had opted to save Rylan, saying: "I feel like Kye, that was one of your best vocal performances, and Rylan I feel that was one of your best performances.
"But it's not just a singing competition, it's The X Factor. And the act I look forward to singing each week is Rylan. I've got to go with my heart, the act I'm sending home is Kye."
Speaking on This Morning, Kye admitted he was frustrated by Tulisa's comments, saying he was also a performer.
In the interview after his exit, Kye said: "It isn’t just about singing, it is about performing as well but then I also think I’ve done some good performances, so I didn’t think that comment was really that relevant.”
And he added: “I won’t be taking it on board.”
Consider yourself told, Tulisa.
The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.
Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
