Overload Generation appeared on ITV’s This Morning earlier today to talk about their departure from The X Factor last night.
Speaking to Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden band member Ryan said, “Obviously we are gutted, but we had the time of our lives on there. It was a mad experience and not many people were lucky enough to do what we were able to do so we are just so grateful for that.”
Ollie added, “We were gutted but we’ve had a night to sleep on it and I think the thing for us is that we didn’t get to perform more of our original stuff like we did [at] Wembley… but that’s all going to change in the upcoming year – we’ve got our single ‘No No No’ out in April so we’re looking forward to that.”
The band came under a lot of harsh criticism from the judges on Saturday night with Simon Cowell saying he didn’t believe in them. Talking about where they went wrong Joey admitted, “Well Saturday night we did give it our all. I don’t think it was as bad as they [the judges] made it out to be – when we got back and watched it back, it weren’t that bad. We were going to bring more the week after but obviously…”
Overload Generation were up against Stephanie Nala in the sing-off and were the second act to be eliminated last night. Sister act Blonde Electra were the first to leave the competition.
On how Blonde Electra were feeling, Ollie said, “They know the score, they said the show has been a school for us and we’ve all learnt so much and they’ve got the same attitude as us – all the people that have gone through are tremendously talented so good luck to each and everyone of of them. Any of them can win it.”
