Mason Noise blames X Factor exit on being 'drugged up'
Mason Noise has blamed his exit from 'The X Factor' on being "drugged up".
The 22-year-old singer was voted out of the competition in a shock elimination on Saturday (21.11.15) and he's now claimed his rendition of Nick Jonas' 'Jealous' wasn't up to scratch because he'd been suffering with a sore throat.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've had really bad flu and swollen glands. I've had to go on voice rest. We've had to see how it goes. You just drug up and do what you can. All the way through I knew I had to just suck it up and perform.
"The doctors advised loads of painkillers and Ibuprofen and lots of sleep."
Mason's comments come after he sarcastically thanked viewers for not voting for him after it was announced he was leaving the show.
He said: "I've loved it. Thank you to everyone who voted and thank you to everyone who didn't vote as well because I'm going to do my thing now and I'm going to meet my fans. I'm happy and I'm ready to go meet my fans."
