The Girl Everyone is Talking About – Cher Lloyd”!
16 year-old Cher Lloyd amazed the X Factor judges and audience with her audition of Keri Hilson’s version of Soulja Boy’s ‘Turn My Swag On‘.
Cher is from Malvern in Worcestershire and honestly when she started singing Keri Hilson (with a thumping bass line) I wasnt really expecting much… but you know, Cher put on a fabulous performance filled with swagger , confidence and great vocals!
I wasn’t crazy on the song – but I loved how Lloyd transformed from a young nervous little 16-year-old into a feisty R&B star with tons of star potential – and the vocals hit all the right notes. Plus it’s refreshing seeing a female singer who doesn’t resort to Mariah and Whitney (or here in the US, Kelly and Carrie!).
I have a feeling Cher will end up going a long way in the competition!!!
You could see the £ signs in the eyes of judge Simon Cowell, and Cheryl was super excited. No doubt both would definitely want to mentor Cher – if she makes it through the rounds(which im sure she will)
