Like American Idol The X Factor in the UK has launched several music careers. Besides Leona Lewis, JLS, Olly Murs, Jedward, One Direction, Matt Cardle, Little Mix, Cher Lloyd has gone on from the show to be successful. Cher Lloyd finished fourth in the seventh season of the reality show. Soon after that she was signed to Syco Music in the UK. She just turned 20 this summer and has already done modeling, rapping and singing.
While her initial singles were only released in the UK and Ireland her third single “Want U Back” was released in North American in the spring of 2012. Her music is largely a mixture of rap and singing. After the release of her debut album, Sticks + Stones, in 2011 her follow-up is set to be released this October. In the meantime she has worked with or appeared on the albums of Demi Lovato, Busta Rhymes, Mike Posner, Hot Chelle Rae, T.I, Ne-Yo, and Snoop Dog.
This show is part of her I Wish (the first single off her forthcoming album) fall tour and is sold out.
