It turns out Misha's fans had sent links of her performances to US rapper Missy Elliott and after her Sunday night exit the up-and-coming singer decided to tweet her musical heroine.
And just hours after leaving the show, Misha got a reply from the superstar rapper who wrote, "Congratulations to all the SUCCESS that will be coming 2 u! U R talented:)."
Not one to waste an opportunity, Misha tweeted, "WOW!!! Words Can't Describe How Much It Means To Have Ur Support! Got Me Thinkin... IMAGINE Missy E && Misha B *MUSICALMADNESS* (sic)."
Okay, so it's not yet a done deal but Missy did reply to say, "Looking 4ward 2 meeting ya."
Misha told The Sun, "I totally didn't expect to get a reply but she replied and we got chatting - and hopefully, you know, with music we can work together."
No wonder Misha's so philosophical about her X Factor departure.
Of the bullying row, the 19-year-old told the paper, "I think it did have an effect. But I'm not going to fully blame Tulisa because everything happens for a reason.
"That chapter of my life is closed now - closed for good - and I'm very grateful for the experience it gave me."
