& # 39; I can't wait to come home to Simon. Come on, & she said.
The reality star broke into tears after being told that she had reached the live finals of Saturday's show.
Megan admitted that she had taken the dramatic step of having her lip filler removed to be taken more seriously as an artist.
When she appeared on stage, Louis Walsh said: & # 39; You look different than the last time I saw you – what did you do? & # 39;
Celebrations: Megan shared a portion of her cake with a black base with yellow drip icing and matching rose-shaped icing on top
Support: Megan also received several cupcakes with a small card with the text #TeamMegan
Simon jumped in Megan's defense and said: & # 39; What did you do [Louis]? You were bald when I met you 20 years ago. & # 39;
Megan, however, honestly admitted: “I'm not going to lie, I used to have a lot of lip filler in my upper lip, and it was a bit embarrassing now that I look back and removed them.
& # 39; I want to be seen as an artist, so I can't be on the stage like that? & # 39;
Megan, whose song reached High Heeled Shoes number one on iTunes, previously audited the citizen version of X Factor in 2014 and 2015.
After her audition, Megan went to Instagram and asked her followers to wish her good luck before she discovered that she had made the live shows.

She wrote: & # 39; Tonight I played one of the first songs I ever wrote. When I wrote this song 2 years ago, I never thought I could play it in jurors in LA on The X Factor! This is really a dream for me. Wish me luck. I love you & # 39;. & # 39;
Prior to Megan's broadcast, it revealed that it is difficult to be taken seriously as a music artist from reality TV.
She also admitted that she did not feel she had an unfair advantage over her X Factor: Celebrity participants, even though she had previously released an album.

Megan is known for her appearances in other shows such as Celebrity Big Brother and Ex on the Beach and believes that people have a preconceived & # 39; perception & # 39; hers that are hard to change.
She told MailOnline: "I feel that I am very busy because I have been trying to crack the music industry for a long time now.
& # 39; And I think that coming away from reality shows, people have a perception of me and they judge me on shows I've done and it's really hard to be taken seriously.
& # 39; So I want to get into this show, people can see how much this means to me and they will take my music seriously. That's why I absolutely wanted to do it. & # 39;
