X Factor's Misha B 'cried backstage' without Kelly Rowland on the panel

Misha B cried backstage before her performances during the weekend's latest X Factor live shows, it has been claimed. The 19-year-old - who found herself in the bottom two last night - was reportedly nervous without having mentor Kelly Rowland on the panel.

The US singer has been grounded in the states on doctor's orders over a throat infection.

Bursting into tears, Misha supposedly cried: “I can’t do this, I need someone there on my side.”

An onlooker told The People: “Misha was petrified of going on stage after what happened last ­weekend. She felt worried that ­without Kelly there she had nobody there to fight her corner.

“The allegations that she is a bully deeply upset her. Kelly was a huge support to her afterwards but without her there Misha was fearful.”

Last night Gary Barlow blamed the comments from Tulisa and Louis for Misha being in the bottom two.

He said: "All the antics last weekend, it must have had an effect on [Misha] because the song was amazing, her voice is incredible, her version of that track was absolutely off the scale."
