"I remember being interviewed by a camera crew and they asked what I thought my chances were of going through to Judges’ Houses. I said, ‘Only eight people are going through, and there are eight better singers than me out there so I don’t rate my chances.’ The guy interviewing me told me I sounded as if I didn’t want it, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I just didn’t want to build myself up too much if I was then going to be let down." - Forever Young: Our Official X Factor Story
