X Factor contestant admits disappointment in mentor

Last year’s X Factor finalist, Nicholas McDonald has admitted that he was disappointed in his mentor, Louis Walsh. The young singer was speaking to OK! magazine when he made the surprising admission, saying: “Louis supported me and guided me the best way. He got me to where I am today. But when we got to the final and he asked everyone to vote for Sam, I was thinking ‘Isn’t he meant to be my mentor?’”

Always a sweetie however, Nicholas also professed his love for last year’s winner, saying: “I was a bit disheartened but Sam Bailey is phenomenal. She’s like Celine Dion, she’s crazy amazing.”

Aww, what a cutie, we’re sure it was a shock for him to hear Louis tell people to vote for another act. 

Louis doesn't have an act in this year's final following the elimination of Stereo Kicks, but seems to be backing Fleur East to win the competition. 

Fleur wowed judges and audiences last weekend with her amazing rendition of Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk which shot straight to number one in the iTunes charts shortly afterwards.
