Another talked about her X Factor journey, writing, “Grace, you cry when you thought you did not enter Sharon’s house, then your shock when you still raise it, no matter how many times I watch it.

“As she told you back then – ‘You have too much talent’.

Congratulations on sharing your beautiful song and skills with the rest of the world.

“It was a long wait four years but it’s just the beginning.”

Earlier this week, the former St Leonard’s CE primary school student also appeared on the Graham Liver show for Radio Lancashire, where she talked about the success of ‘Roots’ and also a bit about her X Factor journey.

Davies, who was in the 2017 series of The X Factor, was the first “roots” in her audition.

Speaking to Graham, she said: “I signed up right away [the X Factor] and was detained for a long time and was not allowed to be released [songs] if I wanted to.

“Now independently I’m allowed to release the songs I want to do when I want to do them – so I’m releasing them now, four years later. [roots]. ”

Graham asked her, “When you look back at the X Factor, are you glad you did?”

“Yeah, I do not think I can ever regret it,” Grace said. “It gave me the opportunity and the platform that I had in the last four years and I did things that I never expected to do.

“It was not the journey I thought I would make – I was a songwriter and just wanted to be an artist.

“Going to a reality TV show was not something I thought I would do.

“But it got me where I am and I can’t beat it.”

She also talked about one of her favorite memories from her X Factor experience – and that came back to her hometown of Blackburn and realize that “everything has changed” for her.
