Gifty Louise to move to US

'The X Factor's Gifty Louise is planning to leave the UK.

The 20-year-old wannabe singer was left heartbroken last weekend when she was given the boot from the competition after she lost in the sing-off against Four of Diamond but, despite her exit, she's not letting it hold her back and is thinking about turning her back on England in order to explore the US.

Taking to her Twitter account, the blonde beauty said: "LA is calling my name, it's beautiful out there (sic)."

Gifty was shocked by her departure and is convinced her mentor Simon Cowell is to blame as he pushed her to perform another song by Fifth Harmony, who won 'The X Factor USA' in July 2012, for the third week in a row in last weekend's show.

She explained recently: "When I first got the song, I was a bit iffy about it. I felt like, 'Well if I were to sing this song, it would be the third Fifth Harmony song I would have sung', so a lot of people would start to think I'm some sort of a tribute act."

And it's not just the 57-year-old show boss Gifty is angry with following her exit, as she is also "quite upset" with Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger because they gave her a standing ovation when she performed before giving her the axe.

She said: "I was quite upset with Sharon and Nicole's decision because I felt they gave me a standing ovation and then they turned around and got rid of me. I worked so hard."

Gifty didn't have the easiest time in the sing-off as Simon accidentally attempted to send her home during the judges' decision after he rushed his verdict in the heat of the moment.

When host Dermot O'Leary asked who he was choosing to be eliminated, Simon quickly said: "Gifty," before he backtracked and apologised to the audience for his slip up.

He added: "OK, rewind. The act I'm sending home... God... Four Of Diamonds."
