Louisa Johnson vows to bounce back after single flops
Louisa Johnson has vowed to storm the charts with her own hits - after her cover of Bob Dylan's 'Forever Young' flopped.
The 17-year-old singer had the lowest chart entry debut of any winner in the show's 11-year history, with the track entering the UK charts at number nine, but she's confident her own material will prove to be popular with the public.
She said: "I have so many ideas so it is a case of trying them out.
"I am young and I want to portray myself in a fun way."
Louisa admitted she's looking forward to getting in the studio and establishing her own distinctive style.
She told BBC Radio 2: "I think it is a case of me going to the studio and trying things out, and see if they work, and if they don't, they don't ... I will have to keep trying."
Louisa's remarks come shortly after it was reported Simon Cowell regretted choosing 'Forever Young' as her winners single.
A source said: "It's an embarrassing result for Syco. Even though Louisa had two fewer days of sales, they expected the single to fare much better.
"On reflection, they feel picking a more up-tempo, anthemic song would have been a better idea.
"But they are fully behind Louisa and insist the poor chart position was down to the song, not the performer."
