X Factor 2012: MK1′s Charlie Rundle hits the town but insists ‘it wasn’t our time to go’
Charlie Rundle was not crying into her cocoa over her X Factor elimination last night, instead she decided to hit the town and live it up.
The MK1 singer was voted off the ITV show yesterday, along with her bandmate Sim, after ending up in the singoff with 30 year old Kye Sones.
She has a full day of press interviews and TV appearances planned for today, but while other unlucky acts have previously headed straight back to the hotel after the live show ended, Charlie admitted that she went out to party instead.
“I went out last night straight after the show and I haven’t been back to the hotel since. Anyone who had a photo of me last night will recognise this t shirt.
I was celebrating, I was celebrating having a good time.”
The duo gave their best performance of the series on Saturday night’s club classics show but it wasn’t enough to save them and Charlie confessed that she found last night’s results show ‘intense’ and doesn’t think the British public got it right.
“It was intense. We still feel it wasn’t our time to go.”
Sim agreed and he admitted that he was shocked by the news that their group was in the bottom two, as he thought they’d been strong enough to avoid it. He explained:
“We felt that we’d given such a great performance on the Saturday night, we felt optimistic that we wouldn’t be in the bottom two.”
He isn’t sure the X factor is quite ready for urban acts yet and added:
“It doesn’t seem like they’re ready for it. Hopefully next year there will be more urban acts coming through.”
Dermot O’Leary has blamed the judges for the band’s elimination, saying that Tulisa and Gary were too harsh with them on Saturday’s show. Do you agree? Leave your comments below…
