Frey was eliminated from The X Factor on Thursday's (December 6) live show following weeks of harsh criticism from Simon Cowell.

Speaking to MTV News about her exit, the 21-year-old Illinois native acknowledged that it was time for her to leave the series.

"I pretty much knew [I wouldn't win]," Frey said. "I mean, I had leopard print on my face, for Christ's sake! I pretty much knew that I wasn't that cookie-cutter girl that you pick to win one of these things, but I knew that I was going to use this and run with it."

Frey also expressed hopes that her music career will break the mould of the typical reality show contestants.

"When Adam Lambert was on [American Idol], I said, 'Now that's the kind of dude that needs to win one of these shows'," she explained. "But the thing is, performers like me and Adam Lambert and Diamond White and Lyric 145, we're not the kind of artists that win these things.

"We're the kind of artist that win afterwards - or I hope so, anyway - and I'm going to work my butt off to get there."

Diamond White was also eliminated on last week's live show.
