Having been rejected four times before, this year almost became fifth time lucky for X Factor hopeful Jade Richards. Unfortunately it wasn't to be, after Kelly Rowland controversially cut the Scottish singer in favour of Janet Devlin, Sophie Habibis, Misha B and Amelia Lily.
But despite getting so many knock backs, Jade won't rule out a return next year.
She said: “I had such an amazing experience on X Factor, I would never rule out trying it again. I never say ‘no’ to these things and try to keep an open mind.”
Speaking to the Daily Record about her exit, Jade continued: “I was gutted but it’s one of those things. Obviously, in my category it was really tough because all the girls were talented.
“There was no one there who couldn’t sing so it was a hard decision for someone to make.”
