James Arthur: 'I don't suit X Factor' - video

By and Amie Parker-Williams
X Factor contestant James Arthur has admitted that he is not suited to the programme.

Speaking to Digital Spy at the X Factor secret gig in London last night (November 29), Nicole Scherzinger's act revealed he didn't think he would be "embraced" by the judges or the public.


"I didn't ever think The X Factor would suit me," he said. "I didn't think I'm the type of contestant they would normally attract. I'm just glad that they embraced me."

On the perception of him being cooler than your average X Factor contestant, he said: "I don't know about this whole cool thing.

"I'm just really laid back and I don't impose myself on people so, maybe that's why it's working for me."

Arthur also spoke about the kind of music he would like to make after X Factor, promising that there will be "a lot of different elements" to his next album.

"I think you'll hear a mixture of acoustic, rock, hip-hop, R&B, soul, maybe some dubstep," he teased.

The X Factor semi-final airs tomorrow (December 1) at 8pm on ITV1.
