Gifty Louise has revealed she plans to move to LA following her X Factor axe.

"They might appreciate me more there!" the singer suggested this week.

Gifty made a shock departure from the show on Sunday night after falling into the bottom three.

It was her first time in the sing off against other acts who had been there before, but the judges voted to send Gifty home.

Now Gifty has said she hopes to "Conquer the world".

"I'll carry on being me. See what's out there. Conquer the world maybe..." she told DigitalSpy. "Go back to LA and see what's out there for me because I loved it when I went out there for Judges' Houses. They might appreciate me more there!

"In life, there's knock-backs - you gotta get back up and do it."

Gifty also revealed she was "disappointed" with the judges - including mentor Simon Cowell - after they snubbed her following Sunday's show.

She told the website: "I'm really disappointed none of them said a word to me [when I left]. I just went back to the house [after being voted out] and packed my stuff. Simon told me, 'You're going to be fine, babe'. I haven't really spoken to him."

And Gifty accused: "I personally think they planned to vote me out - so you know, it is weird really. I did hear Louis say to Sharon, 'Vote Gifty out'. And everyone heard it.

"I think I would have stayed in the competition had it gone to Deadlock."
