Sam Callahan: "X Factor Isn't A Singing Competition"
The newly-eliminated star insists it's about having "the whole package"…

Newly-eliminated X Factor hopeful Sam Callahan has revealed he doesn't see the show as a singing competition.
The 19-year-old, who was booted off the show last night (November 17), had been criticised for delivering a weak vocal performance during some of the shows.
While chatting to Digital Spy today, the young star insisted that competing on the hit show isn't just about having a good voice, but rather it's about having "the whole package".
Callahan dished: "I don't think the X Factor is a singing competition. Obviously you've got to have a voice because the idea is you go on and sing a song, but it's about having the whole thing, the whole package."
He continued: "It's about having the charisma, your own style, your own look, your own kind of swagger, and being able to make things your own.
"I think it's about knowing who you are and going on there and having everything, and making everyone go, 'Woah, this guy's a star' - not 'Woah, this guy can sing.'"
Sam, who was eliminated in favour of fellow teen heartthrob Luke Friend, added: "A lot of people in the world can stand in the middle of a stage with a microphone ... it takes a lot more to be able to put on a real show."
Earlier today we shared a snap of Sam and One Direction star Louis Tomlinson taken backstage ahead of the big results show.
