Poor Storm 'Lee Gardner' Lee. Imagine him sitting at home, quietly weeping while watching the remaining X Factor contestants on stage singing with none other than his hero Bon Jovi.
I would think his bitterness levels rocketed through the bitterness scale that night.
Storm is offically the UK's bitterest most deluded man. Let's follow his journey from improvorished L.A. singer-songwriter to gay burglar through his own words...
"Cheryl Cole I love you. I live for you. When I started singing and I locked eyes on you, you got me. I know you did because you know what it feels like. So Cheryl I love you, you have no idea."
BITTERNESS LEVEL: COMPLETELY UN-BITTER
DELUSION LEVEL: BUBBLING UNDER
"I have a special connection to everyone who has been on the show"
BITTERNESS LEVEL: LOW
"Duetting with Lady GagGa would be amazing, I auditioned to be a backing singer for her tour but she wanted girls. I think she’s a little bit of a soulmate.'
DELUSION LEVEL: RISING
"If Brian May called me up for Queen and said that they had a gig coming up, I would be up for trying out."
DELUSION LEVEL: EXTERMEMLY HIGH
"In the future I will be in control of my artistic presentation and things like that. Until now I have been at the whim of Louis Walsh who, to be honest, is a bit out of touch. It's really difficult when you are working with someone like that to be exciting, relevant and modern. You are pushing up against a mountain."
BITTERNESS LEVEL: VERY BITTER
BONUS STORM X FACT! Storm sang backing vocals on Meatloaf's It's All Coming Back to Me Now
"I'm the most versatile singer out of all of the contestants. That’s not me being arrogant but I realized early on that it's not a singing show, it's a popularity competition. I feel really relieved to be out, actually. Right from the start I was pushing against a lot of factors that were really against me, and I knew, quite early on, that I was probably a bit too creative for the show, a bit too polished and too self-realized."
BITTERNESS LEVEL: GETTING TOO BITTER TO SURVIVE
"Louis made me look like Gary Glitter. He favoured Mary because they're both Irish and a similar age"
BITTERNESS LEVEL: WARNING WARNING FAR TOO BITTER
"Louis didn't say anything to me after the show. I had a really amazing talk with Simon, he said he was really sorry to see me go. I'm a songwriter, that's how I plan to make serious money. I said, 'Please let me work with you', and he was up for it."
DELUSION LEVEL: CRITICAL
I feel Katie and Cher are there just to be famous, not to become singers – and I wish I hadn’t spent so much time with Katie."
BITTERNESS LEVEL: LIKE A BITTER LEMON
"I can't see Mary really connecting with the public. She's like my mum. I felt very alone and no one understood my uniqueness. Louis didn't how to handle it."
DELUSION LEVEL: COMPELTELY DELUDED
"Interestingly, I spent more time with Cheryl and Simon than Louis, my glorious leader.
Cheryl got me, was very into me, loved my shoes and my style."
Storm: 'Hey Cheryl, did you love my performance of Born To Run, with the motorbike and everything?'
Cheryl: 'Um, I like your shoes?'
