The singer missed out on a place in the Final 12, but can join the Live Shows if he wins the wildcard public vote this week.
Watch our interview with wildcard Adam Burridge:
Adam insisted that Rylan "can sing" and claimed that all the Boys category got along in Dubai. "There's no bad feelings whatsoever," he said.
Pleading with fans to pick up the phone for him, he added: "The public haven't seen enough of me yet on the show. My music or my personality."
The singer has had support from One Direction's Louis Tomlinson on Twitter and insisted that his friendship with judge Nicole Scherzinger had not been damaged.
Fans can vote for either Adam, Amy Mottram, Christopher Maloney or Times Red to be this year's Wildcard act. Voting closes at midday on October 6 and the winner will sing on the first Live Show that evening.
The X Factor Live Shows start this weekend on ITV1.
