    Kandy Rain stood up to their judges last night slamming X-Factor judges Cheryl and Dannii for describing their outfits as provocative.

    Singer Coco Lloyd, 22, said, ‘I thought (the criticism from Dannii and Cheryl) wasn’t very relevant.

    ‘We were really quite upset because they should be commenting on our performance and on our singing because it’s a talent show at the end of the day,’ she told The Sun

    Chemmane Applewhaite, 26, added, ‘We would have got bigger and better. We want to get people talking about what we’re going to sing and what we’re going to wear.

    ‘We want to be different, and we’re not scared to take risks. We don’t want to be the same. The X-Factor lack people like ourselves. We’re fearsome and fun!’

    Cheryl Cole apologised for saying that their outfits were too provocative but justified her criticism by saying that she was, ‘Just trying to be constructive’.

    The girls talked about how the show was difficult for them because Louis was missing, ‘It was an emotional show but Louis called us as soon as we got off stage. He’s been really supportive and told us not to give up because there’s a gap in the market for a pop group like us.’

    We doubt this is the last we’ve heard of Kandy Rain.
