Former 'X Factor' contestant Lucy Spraggan is negotiating a deal to perform on this year's live results shows
Lucy Spraggan is in talks to perform on 'The X Factor'.
The singer-songwriter looks set to make a grand return to the live shows this year by inking a deal with Simon Cowell to perform her solo material on the ITV competition, despite quitting the show mid-series in 2012.
Asked whether she'd consider appearing on the primetime programme, Lucy told BANG Showbiz at the 'Filth' premiere in London's Leceister on Monday night (30.09.13): "Yeah sure, there's talks about that already. So hopefully, fingers crossed!"
The 22-year-old star hasn't been keeping up with this year's series, but was far from impressed when she heard about the harsh new twist which sees the judges able to swap one of their final six hopefuls for another contestant.
Lucy laughed: "I haven't [been watching], you know. I feel really bad, I may have broken some kind of law. I've heard how harsh it is this year, I would have fought the person who was going to take my seat. It's always really tough though, when there's audiences and stuff like that."
The quirky singer was mentored by axed judge Tulisa Contostavlos last year, but would have loved to have been coached by glamazon Nicole Scherzinger as she has a secret crush on her.
She said: "I would pick Nicole [this year]. Obviously. She's more beautiful in real life - seriously, it's true."
Lucy isn't quite as impressed with 60-year-old showbiz matriarch Sharon Osbourne, however.
Quizzed about Sharon's big comeback to the judging panel, she quipped: "Yeah, it's good. She looks a bit funny at the moment though!"
Lucy was walked the red carpet with 'Filth' stars James McAvoy, Joanne Froggatt and Imogen Poots.
