Lisa: Basically, at the end of the day, we don’t care what you guys say, we came here. But at the end of the day, yeah, we care what you think, but she’s just being a bitch, over the top.

Simon: Can I be honest with you two? You have the worst attitude of any contestants that I have ever met on any of these shows. Seriously, seriously, rude.
Lisa: Like when your there, and we’re up here, and they’re like ‘boo. Boo,” you’re not going to be like . . .”
Simon: Lisa, you did tell them to shut up before you even started to sing.
Lisa: I know. But at the end of the day, the audience were told for an opinion, so . . .

Judge: The singing was not great, girls.
Lisa: Who are you, may I ask?
