X Factor 2011: I wanted it as much as Misha B, says Sophie Habibis

Eliminated X Factor hopeful Sophie Habibis has hit out at mentor Kelly Rowland's reasoning for sending her home, saying she wants it as much Misha B. Speaking on the phone during Sunday night's sing-off, Kelly was forced to choose between her two acts in a shock bottom two result.

Kelly had saved Misha B, saying the youngster "wanted it more" than Sophie, but she failed to agree.

"At the end of the day she's a judge and she has to do what she's got to do. She made her choice and that's that. I've got to deal with it," Sophie said.

"[But] It's not true. Of course I do really want to be a singer and want to keep going at what I love," she revealed, before quickly adding: "but I value her opinion."

Speaking to Metro, Sophie continued: "I don't think Misha (Bryan) deserved to be in the bottom two at all.

"At the end of the day you really have to expect the unexpected. I gave it my best. I love the song that I sang. I wouldn't take it back.

"With Kelly, my biggest concern was her health and things like this you have to deal with."
