X FACTOR hopeful Misha Bryan was booted off the singing contest yesterday (Dec 4).
The 19-year-old was sent home after polling the least public votes in the semi-finals.
"I just want to say thank you to everyone here at the X Factor for making my dreams a reality," Misha said.
Earlier judge Gary Barlow had predicted the Manchurian teen didn't stand to win the competition saying the 'bullying' allegations, made by judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh, had permanently damaged her chances.
"You have been wrongfully accused in the past of being someone that you are not. The really horrible truth behind this is, even if you're lucky enough to get through, I don't think you can win this competition because of that and that's a real shame," the Take That singer said.
On October 22, Contostavlos accused Bryan of being "mean" to other contestants. Walsh went further by suggesting she had been a "bully", but was later forced to apologise to viewers.
The 19-year-old singer, who was once favourite to lift the X Factor trophy, told The People that the judge's comments about her 'feisty' behaviour backstage had turned viewers against her.
"Of course it is going to damage my chances of winning the show," she said.
"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. I understand how people think and how as human beings they are heavily influenced by people's comments," the Manchester-born teenager added.
To secure her place in the final in Saturday's show, Misha sang Motown classic Dancing In The Street and Pink's hit song Perfect to secure her place in the final.
Misha's mentor and judge, Kelly Rowland told The People magazine that despite Misha's talent, she felt the show hadn't quite been the 19-year-old's scene.
"I don't think the show has allowed Misha B to come across well at all, unlike some of the acts, which is a real shame and hasn't helped her cause," Rowland said.
She continued: "She is a really sweet, funny girl but this has been overlooked and instead she comes across differently to that."
