Gary Barlow: Tamera Is Better Out Of X Factor
Talent show judge insists that teenager will be a huge star in time...
"She's 16 years old, and what I'd love to see her do now is go and lock herself in a studio for a year, two years, and really find who she is as an artist.
"We shouldn't be worried about her going — it will make her get out next year and get to work and come back a superstar."
And Tamera responded: "I'm gutted to be out before the semi-final but I'm really excited by what Gary said."
Meanwhile, she also admitted in another interview with Digital Spy that her time on the show had been "the worst two weeks of my life".
She said: "Because I'm new to this process I don't really know what to expect and I'm still learning, so I think I just let everything get on top of me and I didn't really know to handle it.
"Those two weeks were my time to just cry. The stress got me during that time, but I've picked myself up and I'm feeling a lot better now."
