Ousted X Factor group Trill say they do not blame a newly added wildcard band for bumping them out of the competition.
The R&B trio, which is comprised of 15-year-old friends Sheralyn May, Jessica Jade and Angel Tairua, were the first act eliminated from the show's live rounds this season after the judges had to decide whether to send them or singer Adrien Nookadu home.
Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ronan Keating and Redfoo all opted to farewell Trill, hinting that it would even the playing field after groups mentor Dannii Minogue scored an extra act when Brothers 3 won a Wildcard place in the live finals on Sunday.
However, Tairua told AAA the trio did not think they were sent packing because of the sibling band's arrival.
"I think the fact that Dannii had four groups in her category didn't necessarily make her a threat (to the other judges)," she said.
"I don't know what the judges were thinking but I think the public really loved Brothers 3 as the Wildcard. We love Brothers 3, we love all the groups and we didn't want anyone to go home."
The schoolgirls have no regrets about their time on the Seven show, saying it taught them how to handle the stress and pressure of being in the spotlight.
"To experience all that we did at such a young age, it was the most beautiful thing," Angel said.
The trio, who hail from Victoria and NSW, are now preparing to head home to see their families after spending several months apart and will go back to school next week. But they are not ready to give up on their dreams of stardom.
"We want to push forward with our music careers and stick together," Tairua said.
