Submitted by brad on Mon, 2011-12-05 17:28

Recent X Factor USA cast-off Drew Ryniewicz says she believes her life is “only going to get better” following her elimination last week.

The 14-year-old was sent home in the double elimination results show after signing off against Marcus Canty.

Ryniewicz told Fox All Access: “I wish I would have done something upbeat. I believe I could have won if I'd really showed how versatile I could be. That was a mistake made not only by Simon [Cowell] - I know he took the blame - but also by me. I should have fought and fought and fought for what I wanted to do.

The Nicole Scherzinger-mentored singer was blasted by Cowell after her performance of Meat Loaf’s ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me Now’ on this week’s rock-themed episode. Cowell described the performance as something he "would expect someone to sing at the Hilton Hotel with people turning their backs, eating peanuts".

Francis admitted that while it was not the best week for her, she just wanted him to be fair.

X Factor USA act Lakoda Rayne believe they are in the competition for a reason after narrowly surviving last week’s elimination.

The four-piece girl group placed in the bottom two alongside Stereo Hoggz, who the judges voted to send home.

Speaking with Fox All Access afterwards, member Cari Fletcher said: "It's been hard because we've never really been used to getting so much feedback from people, and you're not always going to get good feedback.
