Paije Richardson's popstar pledge
Paije Richardson has promised to ''work, work, work'' to achieve his dream of being a popstar despite being booted off 'The X Factor'
Paije Richardson has promised to "work, work, work" to achieve his dream of becoming a popstar.
The 20-year-old, who was the ninth act to be booted off 'The X Factor' last night (21.11.10), said he is now going to concentrate on singing live and gaining more experience in the music business.
The former cinema worker - who was sent home by the judges following his performance of Sam Brown's hit 'Stop' in a sing-off against Cher Lloyd - told ITV1's 'Daybreak': "I'm going to keep trying my best and doing whatever comes around and work, work, work until I achieve what I want."
The Londoner also said he felt "incredibly happy" that controversial contestant Katie Waissel survived the public vote, and on Cher's survival he added: "She's a great talent and she deserves her place. I'm proud of her and I hope she does well."
Paije also admitted he felt "bit sorry" for Brazilian eccentric Wagner, who is being kept in the competition by fans, despite attracting constant criticism from judges.
The singer said he now wanted Rebecca Ferguson to win the talent show adding: "You can't fault her for anything."
The show's judges said they felt Paije and Cher did not deserve to be in the bottom two of the competition but only his mentor Dannii Minogue opted to save him after over 17-year-old college student Cher's "incredible" performance of Shakespeare's Sister track 'Stay'.
