Louisa Johnson wants to duet with Beyonce

Louisa Johnson wants to duet with Beyonce in 'The X Factor' final.

The 17-year-old hopeful has admitted she's been dropping hints to production staff about who she'd like to perform with if she makes it to the final.

She said: "Beyonce is my number one choice, I love her so much - she's different, she works hard and she doesn't just have one style.

"She's my inspiration. Her inspiration is Michael Jackson, so it all comes from him.

"If not Beyonce, I'd duet with Christina Aguilera.

"I've hinted to a few people."

Despite long being the favourite to win, Louisa has insisted she has paid little attention to the hype, and doesn't worry about criticism either.

She said: "To be honest, I'm not one of those people who gets really excited about things, nor really low.

"If I get a good comment or a bad one, I just think, 'Cool.'

"I'm just focusing on myself but I've still got a lot to prove and I'm still at a very early stage.

"I don't feel like, 'Oh yeah, I'm amazing' just because people have said that.

"I'm just me and I can do better every week."

However, the singer admitted she was thrilled to learn Simon Cowell has tipped her to win the show, but is trying not to "get ahead" of herself.

She told Now magazine: "That's really, really cool. I really appreciate things like that - and it's Simon Cowell and he's amazing, obviously.

"I need to focus though and not get too ahead of myself.

"I just say, 'Thank you' and that's that. I want to keep myself on the same level at all times."
