Olly Murs will have to cut short his plans to break into the US market due to his Xtra Factor commitments.
The Essex lad is looking forward to supporting One Direction on their North American tour in the summer.
However, he told the Daily Star: "It will only be for a short time because I'm doing The Xtra Factor.
"I'm not sure I'll be out there long enough to do well.
"It's only going to be for about six weeks but it's an amazing opportunity so who knows?"
Meanwhile, Murs admitted that anybody who begins dating a One Direction band member will have a tough time.
During Caroline Flack's her three-month relationship with Harry Styles she received death threats, and Liam Payne's partner Danielle Peazer was the victim of internet abuse.
Olly told the Daily Star Sunday: "That will happen with any of the One Direction boys.
"Whoever goes out with them will get stick. I've always thought that about whoever I get with - my fans might not accept them."
