Cher Lloyd To Perform On The X Factor USA
American hopefuls inspired after watching clips of our Cher…
The 17-year-old singer came to the notice of US producers of the show after hundreds of American applicants claimed to have been inspired by watching clips of the plucky performer.
An insider told The Sun: "The team are talking about bringing Cher into the show after hearing feedback from wannabes about her.
"Leona Lewis is the X Factor sweetheart in America but Cher is the flip side - talented but edgy. Everyone agrees she will show the US finalists and the American public that you don't just have to be bubblegum pop to be a success."
Simon Cowellrevealed he was thrilled by the number of hopefuls who had auditioned for the show, which starts in September. "The figures are much higher than we expected," he said. "We began in Los Angeles with nearly 20,000 and we anticipate 8,000 to 10,000 in Miami." US auditions started on 27 March and continue until late May.
Cher is working on her debut album, set for release later this year, with Will.I.Amand Lady GaGa’s hitmaker RedOne.
