We are still bummed out that Lyric145 was first on the chopping block on Wednesday night’s elimination episode of “The X Factor”. They got eliminated by the public and weren’t given the chance to compete in a final sing-off for survival. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our full recap here.
When asked about what they had planned on performing on Tuesday night’s show and how it could have changed things for them, they had a trick up their sleeve that didn’t come to fruition. They said, “Basically, our plan was to take a legendary diva song, which we did, and actually write our own original lyrics. It was a very, very mix between a diva and a hip-hop track and arguably was going to be our best performance yet — like this is coming from the producers of the show.”
The group went on to say, “And the night before the live shows, we got a call saying they didn’t want us to do the song we had been preparing. And then the night of the show, we got a new song. So we only had a couple hours to perform a brand new song. It was very spur of the moment, and I mean, I’m actually proud of us for executing a performance the way we did – being able to do it within so little time.”
They continued, “And when we got eliminated, we were disappointed to hear the judges say what they had to say, because that was exactly our plan — to do a hip-hop song with original lyrics. But you know, you have to take the good with the good and the bad with the bad and make the best out of the situation.”
As to whether or not they will be staying together as a group, they revealed, “Yes, definitely — without a doubt. We definitely want to stay together. We feel like this whole situation was divine and it was like meant to be. So to go against that right now would just be not the best idea, so we feel like we work together so well and we have the best chemistry between each other, that it’s only right for us to stay together.”
With regard to what song they would’ve performed if given the chance, they added, “Oh we had – I still don’t feel like we should tell the world what we were going to do. If we would’ve had to sing for survival, we would’ve definitely survived. We would’ve lost our total minds onstage. We had something planned outrageous for TV. No one would’ve expected it. It was unexpected. But yeah, we can’t give you that secret. We’re so sorry.”
