X Factor 2012: Lucy Spraggan ‘livid’ at claims she’s not a ‘proper’ singer!
After the singer songwriter performed some of her own tracks on the ITV show – her tunes Tea and Toast and Last night won rave reviews from the panel – some viewers claimed that she spoke more than sang and had no place in a singing competition.
Star magazine reports that the talented hopeful was “livid” about the criticism and one source said:
“She overheard that people have been saying she’s not a proper singer because she speaks a lot of her songs.”
“She was livid. Apparently, people are saying she’s not diverse enough to win the show. Now she’s determined to prove her doubters wrong.
“After all, shes written loads of songs herself. it’s really shaken her.”
Gary Barlow obviously doesn’t agree with the critics, as the Take That star praised Lucy following her version of ‘Golddigger’ on the live show last weekend.
“I was a bit worried when I knew you were doing a cover version, tonight was a different case entirely. I really enjoyed the fun in that. Well done, great performance, good girl.”
Louis Walsh added:
“You are a true professional, you are a brilliant, versatile, storytelling performer and I loved it.”
Tulisa is right behind her contestant too and Lucy revealed that her mentor is happy to let her progress as she wants on the show and stay true to herself and her style. She explained:
“I got a text from Tulisa saying that I could dye myself blue and go on stage as a smurf if that’s what I want.”
“I’ve got her on my side and she wouldn’t let anyone change me.”
We love that Lucy and Tulisa have struck up such a close friendship. It’s sweet.
Meanwhile, Lucy has revealed that she is already missing her pal Melanie Masson from the ITV show. The mum of two looked after Spraggan and she admitted that she’ll miss her smile in the mornings.
“She’s great, she looked after all of us. In the morning when everyone is knackered she has a really smiley face and is really nice to everybody.”
