X Factor’s Misha B gets Missy Elliott’s help, we predict big success

Misha B might have missed out on the X Factor final by getting the boot in the semi-final, but the 19-year-old has got a massive fan in the shape of Missy Elliott. Pretty useful contact, wethinks.

American rapper Missy Elliott tweeted Misha after Sunday's show, saying: "Congratulations to all the SUCCESS that will be coming 2 u! U R talented:)."

Misha said: "A lot of my fans were tweeting her — but I didn't know about it. She's been watching some of my performances on X Factor — some of the links that my fans have posted to her — and she's given me a lot of praise and support.”

She added: "So I just thought, right, OK, this is one of my heroes — let me just tweet her. I totally didn't expect to get a reply but she replied and we got chatting — and hopefully, you know, with music we can work together."

Misha also revealed she doesn’t bear a grudge against Tulisa, who accused her of being a bully, telling Daybreak yesterday: "Forgiving is the thing that I have done. I believe that in situations that occur in life, you shouldn't get bitter, you should just get better."

She did admit, however, that she thought Tulisa had a part to play in her eviction from the show.

Misha said: "I think it did have an effect. But I'm not going to fully blame Tulisa because everything happens for a reason.  That chapter of my life is closed now — closed for good — and I'm very grateful for the experience it gave me."
