FORT MYERS, Fla.- Jazz Little's run on the X-Factor ended at Simon Cowell's house, but the Cape Coral high school student says she'll be back there again.

The 16-year-old impressed the judges of the singing contest enough at her Miami audition and a week long boot camp in Los Angeles to make it to the round of 16 and spend ten days in Paris being coached and mentored by Cowell.

In the latest episode of the show, the four judges picked their final four for the live portion of the X-Factor competition. 

Little says she knew she wouldn't make it when only two girls in her group remained to be told their fate and she went first, but she understands why Cowell decided not to move her forward.

Little told WINK News Now This Morning on Thursday she'll spend the next year improving her singing and knowledge of music to try again next year and  prove to the X-Factor judges next time she's good enough to go even further.
