Cher Lloyd: X-Factor Hopeful (Video)

September 6, 2010

Cher Lloyd is the X-Factor hopeful who is making waves on the web this weekend after an amazing performance at Saturday night’s audition. But who is she? Learn more here, and see the video below.

There have already been a number of worthy competitors on this year’s competition—and things are just getting started. It seems the show has finally been able to shake the first few scandals of the season and get underway. Now that the wild, growling, spasmatic Shirlena is gone and auto-tune is banned from the show, we can get down to business.

And business it was Saturday night when Cher Lloyd (above left) took to the stage to perform her own ‘Turn My Swag On.’ The performance was a refreshing change from some of the big numbers that the singers try to pull off. There is nothing worse than hearing an amateur butcher a classic.

When asked about her song choice, the 17-year-old said: “I didn’t want to sing Mariah or Whitney – I wanted to shock people.” It was apparently shocking enough to capture Cheryl Cole’s attention, who admitted she would like to mentor Cher. Leading up to the audition, the media was quick to compare the two, so it is only fitting.

Even with all of the praise from the judges and the audience, Cher admitted to the Mirror that she gets jittery before performing:

“I always get nervous before I sing, to the stage where people think I am not going to be able to do it…Then when I get on stage normally I am fine. I just turn into a different person. It is weird.”

After Saturday’s performance, the young lady is doing some rounds on the morning talk show circuit in the UK. She is actually heavily favored to win, some say by 9-2 odds.
