X Factor 2018: Molly Scott vows to ‘come back fighting’ this week

X Factor’s Molly Scott is determined to prove the judges wrong this weekend.


The 16-year-old performed Little Do You Know by duo Alex and Sierra last Saturday night, but her performance wasn’t too well received by the panel.

The judges criticised the song choice, with Robbie Williams saying she needed something more relevant to her.

Molly has since been working with mentor Simon Cowell on her latest performance, which she says will be very different.

This weekend is ‘Fright Night’ on the show and Molly teased: “With me doing dancing as well as my singing for years, I’ve always sung and danced, so I’m really looking forward to getting to show that in my performance.

“We’ve got plenty of ideas in mind for the performance and my outfit. I’m not really that big on Halloween normally but it’s not every day you get to do it on The X Factor!”

Despite the judges’ comments towards her, Molly was saved by the public vote in the latest results show.


In an interview with the Chronicle Live, the teenager reflected: “Getting through on Sunday night was the biggest relief ever. Simon was helping me hold it together but I was really nervous.

“After receiving great comments in week one, I was hoping to raise the bar again for week two so when it went the other way it was hard.

“But, if anything, now I think the negative comments will help me as I’m determined to come back fighting this week.”

Currently Simon has all four girls left in his category: Molly joins Bella Penfold, Shan Ako and Scarlett Lee in this week’s show.


They make up the current total of 12 finalists, with two more expected to leave on Sunday night.

The X Factor 2018 continues this Saturday and Sunday on ITV. Guest performers will be Liam Payne and James Arthur.
