Towie Star Jasmin In X Factor Rant
Rejected reality TV star hits out over 15-hour wait to audition...
Jasmin Walia has voiced her unhappiness at the way she was treated on The X Factor.
The Only Way Is Essex cast member Jasmin, 24, said she was exhausted after waiting 15 hours to perform in front of the show's judges.
She told The Sun: "I'd woken up at 4.30am and obviously you're nervous the night before. I had to be there at 7.30am and auditioned at 10.30pm.
"I was completely shattered. You're waiting around, getting more and more nervous watching everyone around you.
"When I went into the audition, the nerves got the better of me, I was so tired. If an A-lister had to wait 15 hours backstage she wouldn't give her best performance either."
Jasmin failed to impress the judges with her take on Clean Bandit's Rather Be - and ended up getting four "no" votes after a second song didn't cut the ice either.
"It's ridiculous, 15 hours is ridiculous," she continued. "Imagine just sitting their twiddling your thumbs. It just winds you up inside and you watch people go through, and you watch people not go through and you think 'am I going to?'
"Simon did mug me off, I feel like when I was singing I was getting to the chorus, and actually the chorus is the best bit where you can see your vocal ability in the song and when he had stopped me I just thought 'oh c***'."
But she insisted that she hadn't had her dreams of pop stardom shattered.
"Every cloud has a silver lining because I'm making my first single, so you've got to think of the positives.
"The show has opened doors for me, it's given me the confidence, now I'm out there and I've made my first single."
