X Factor star Gifty Louise may have left the competition, but she is still dreaming big when it comes to her career in the music biz.

Yep, her elimination hasn't got her all defeated, as Gifty has hinted she may take a trip to Los Angeles to focus on her vocal talents. And what a place that would be to nurture her popstar ways, right?!

Gifty revealed she has set her sights on a trip to LA while responding to a fan on Twitter, who suggested the singer take her talent across the pond as she is "a star."

Gifty responded: "LA is calling my name, it's beautiful out there."

Ooh, we reckon her mentor Simon Cowell could make it happen, no?

Fans of The X Factor saw Gifty sent home from the competition followings its Fright Night themed live show. During Sunday night's results show (30 October), Gifty found herself in the bottom two alongside Louis Walsh's act Four of Diamonds.

She battled to keep her place on the show with her rendition of 'A Song For You', but Louis, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne all voted in favour of saving girlband Four of Diamonds instead.

Sharon had the deciding vote and later revealed she chose to send Gifty home, as she believes Four of Diamonds will make a "better album."

Gifty, meanwhile, has said she was "most disappointed" with Nicole choosing to vote her out of the show.

Speaking to Hello Online, she claimed: "The judges didn't say a word to me [after the results show]. I'm quite disappointed about that. I just went back to the house. On stage, Simon told me that I was going to be fine, I haven't really spoken to him. I was most disappointed at Nicole.

"I personally feel that they just planned to vote me out, it is what it is. I did hear Louis say to Sharon, 'vote Gifty out' and everybody heard it."

Gifty added: "I personally think it was just 'Let's get rid of the competition' so they voted me out. It's fine, I'll take it as a compliment. They want me out because they perhaps felt like I could beat their artist and that's fine."

Following her exit, Gifty appeared on The Xtra Factor and praised her mentor Simon. She said: "Simon has been absolutely fantastic, he's always had my best interests at heart and has always done what made me feel comfortable."

He, meanwhile, told her: "When you have an opportunity like this to be in front of millions of people, you grow from it and get tough. You're a real talent, Gifty and this isn't the end, I promise you."
