Grace Davies has opened up about behind the scenes struggles on The X Factor 2017.

The singer has made it to the final but she has confessed it hasn’t been easy.


Ahead of the weekend’s last live shows, Grace confessed to having a few “wobbles” off camera.

“I’m a perfectionist and have tried to be very hands on throughout the whole process,” Grace explained. “So if something isn’t quite how I’d like it to be, I do struggle.”

She told OK! Magazine: “All of us have had wobbles – they tend to happen during dress rehearsals because that’s our last chance to perfect our performances before the live show.

“If it goes wrong, it can be very upsetting.”

Grace also spoke about having to read through mean tweets sent to her during the live shows.


She told the publication in a new interview: “I don’t want to read the negative things, but if I don’t look on social media, I don’t see all the positive stuff either.

“It’s a hard balance to strike. I’ve learned to take it on the chin – not everyone is going to love me and that’s something I’ve learned to deal with.”

Grace is joined by Rak Su and Kevin Davy White in next weekend’s grand final.

Right now, Rak Su are the favourites to win the competition but viewer votes alone will determine who is the winner on the night.

The X Factor 2017 returns this weekend, December 2 and 3, for the grand final live at the ExCel centre.
