X Factor 2016: Ryan Lawrie hits out after being in the bottom three AGAIN


Ryan Lawrie has spoken out after last night's X Factor 2016 results.

The latest live show saw the 20-year-old Scot in the danger zone alongside Gifty Louise and Four of Diamonds.

But for the THIRD consecutive week, he was saved by the Lifeline Vote - with a shock result eventually sending Gifty home.

Ryan has found himself getting a bit of stick from some viewers despite the public of course voting to save him.

He posted a lengthy message on Twitter last night, saying: “For those who have just got to know me on The X Factor. I am not just some boy who jumps around is trying to become ‘famous’. I am here for a reason and that reason is to make a career in music.”


Ryan added: "I am NOT the strongest singer and I know that I’m probably (most likely) not going to win, but what I can say is i am a human being with a dream and I am trying to make it a reality.”

“I am a songwriter. That is my first love and my main passion," Ryan went on. “I am a loving and genuine boy.”

He also suggested the reason he was in the bottom three but kept being saved was down to the difference between older and younger voters.

Only app votes are allowed in the life line vote, potentially leading to a younger demographic having more say.

Ryan tweeted: "I'm gonna be honest here. I don't get the votes from the older generation...but I sure as hell get them from all of you beautiful people!!"

His mentor Nicole Scherzinger last night claimed that Ryan Lawrie has "turned a corner" on The X Factor.

Despite the close shaves, Nicole insisted on The Xtra Factor that he's at the top of his game.

"I mean, look, he's been in the bottom three, but Scotland is supporting him and voting, because he's never had to do the sing-off yet," she commented.

"I feel like Ryan did everything that he could this week. He really turned a corner and I think he was unbelievable last night. He did the best that he could."

However, one cheeky viewer disagreed when they got to ask Nicole a question live on air.

"It seems like every week Ryan's in the bottom three," said the caller. "Does that mean that he's got no chance of winning, and should he give up now?"

"No! Absolutely not!" exclaimed Nicole.


"Ryan turned to me tonight and went, 'it's the third time', and I said, 'how many times has Saara [Aalto] been in, and look at her, she's on top right now'. You can always turn it around."

Saara survived the first two sing-offs, and has since avoided the bottom three thanks to a boost in public support.

The X Factor continues next Saturday at 8.00pm on ITV.
