Misha B has taken the slightly unprecedented step of thanking the X Factor for getting her where she is today.
Having a chat with the BBC, B said: "If it wasn't for X Factor I wouldn't see myself where I am right now. The journey really begins because we're in the real music industry now."
That you are.
She also said that the experience of being on the show has made her tougher: "Being a contestant things are out of your hands anyway. I learned you've got to be thick skinned, take everything with a pinch of salt. Don't believe your own hype."
We tell ourselves that every day Misha.
