There seems to be a few sour grapes coming from X Factor reject Amelia Lily today. The 16-year-old claimed that being axed by mentor Kelly Rowland on the show was the "best thing" that could’ve happened to her, saying she now won't become a "manufactured X Factor singer."

Amelia was one of four acts chopped during last weekend's first live show, but despite crying at the result, today she declared: “It’s the best thing that could have happened.”

She told the Daily Star Sunday: “I can be me and make it on my own – that’s what I’d prefer to do anyway.

"I’m not going to be made into a manufactured X Factor star now.”

She's certainly changed her tune...
