The X Factor: Misha B Claims Bullying Row Damaged Her Chances
X Factor hopeful slams judge Tulisa claiming the bullying row may have ruined her chances...
The 19-year-old hopeful believes the row over backstage goings-on has damaged her chances of winning the talent show and insists she has yet to receive an apology from Tulisa.
While it was Louis Walsh that used the B-word, it was the N-Dubz star that kicked off the row, accusing Misha of "mean comments" aimed at rival acts.
In an interview with The People, Misha said: "Only Louis has apologised in person, but why the whole thing was brought up was never really explained.
"Tulisa did talk to me but there was no apology... Obviously the public's opinions are going to be affected by the judges' comments and that will decide how people vote.
"I know if I was watching the show and someone accused someone like they did without knowing the facts then that would make me change my mind on the person."
Each week the judges have heaped praise on Misha's powerful vocals but she has twice been in the bottom two. And she blames the bullying debacle, which she says was based on "people jumping to conclusions and false evidence", for her lack of votes.
"I understand how people think and how as human beings they are heavily influenced by people's comments," she explained. "Of course it is going to damage my chances of winning the show."
Nevertheless Misha is still fighting for her place in the final and even had the audience chanting her name on Saturday night.
Whatever happens on The X Factor, she has big plans for the future
"I want to have the Misha B effect," she added. "I want to be global. The sky is not the limit - there is no limit, no dream is too big."
