Lucy Spraggan - X Factor UK 2012 Finalist

Updated on July 25, 2013

Lucy Spraggan - X Factor UK 2012 Finalist

Lucy Spraggan has made quite an impact on series9 of the X Factor UK 2012. Winning a place in Tulisa's category, in the GIRLS group, Lucy Spraggan has made quite a name for herself, by performing and singing her own songs.

It's quite controversial for a contestant to perform their own songs, because disputes of an unfair advantage on those that don't have their own songs, but who cares right?

Lucy Spraggan's songs are brilliant! I loved her audition songs and also the way she's mixing up songs that Lucy didn't write herself - such as Kanye West's Gold Digger.

No matter what happens with the X Factor, Lucy Spraggan definitely has a musical career waiting for her!

Lucy Spraggan: ""I am gutted not to be able to continue on this journey but I'm not well enough to perform. To accept another free pass having missed last weekend would not be fair on the others in the competition. I wish them all well. I would like to express my thanks to everyone who has supported me. There is no way that this setback will prevent me from fulfilling my ambition. You'll be hearing from me again very soon."

Is Lucy Spraggan a breath of Fresh Air for a show like the X Factor?
