Louisa Johnson vows to bounce back after single flop
'X Factor' winner Louisa Johnson has pledged to storm the charts with her own hits, following the underwhelming performance of her debut single
Louisa Johnson has vowed to storm the charts with her own hits - after her cover of Bob Dylan's 'Forever Young' flopped.
The 17-year-old singer had the lowest chart entry debut of any winner in the show's 11-year history, with the track entering the UK charts at number nine, but she's confident her own material will prove to be popular with the public.
She explained: "I have so many ideas so it is a case of trying them out. I am young and I want to portray myself in a fun way."
Louisa admitted she's looking forward to getting in the studio and establishing her own distinctive style.
She told BBC Radio 2: "I think it is a case of me going to the studio and trying things out, and see if they work, and if they don't, they don't ... I will have to keep trying."
Louisa's remarks come shortly after it was reported show boss Simon Cowell, 56, regretted choosing 'Forever Young' as her winners' single.
A source said: "It's an embarrassing result for Syco. Even though Louisa had two fewer days of sales, they expected the single to fare much better.
"On reflection, they feel picking a more up-tempo, anthemic song would have been a better idea.
"But they are fully behind Louisa and insist the poor chart position was down to the song, not the performer."
