The eliminated singer told The Xtra Factor that she would have liked the opportunity to sing more soulful tracks.
She said: "To be honest, it's been a bit difficult to do the music I really like on the show.
"I like a lot more soulful music like Indie Arie, Jill Scott but there's always a problem because people don't know the songs."
The singer lost out in tonight's final showdown with Union J after the two acts received the fewest amount of public votes this weekend.
She was criticised for her performance of 'Freak Like Me' on Saturday's show and judge Gary Barlow said he didn't believe her vocals were as strong as previous weeks.
Ellis, 25, told hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack that she has "learnt a lot" about herself during her time on the show, but is looking to spending time with her daughter.
She added: "For me, I'm going to enjoy some time with my daughter and then just get back on it, get writing and try and get out there again."
When asked by a caller who she liked least of the contestants left in the competition, she said that she could not pick anyone, but did want Jahmene or James to win the show.
Ellis's exit leaves nine contestants on the show competing to win this year's competition.
