They said it couldn’t be done. But Cher Lloyd, the outspoken runner-up from series seven of The X Factor, is a hit in the USA.
Despite the fact that American audiences never saw her performances on Simon Cowell’s show (or maybe because of it), our cousins across the pond have been charmed by Cher, and her debut US single Want U Back is rapidly climbing the charts.
“I’m so excited by everything that is going on!” shrieked Cher. “I’ve been touring US radio stations for quite a while now, and it’s been fantastic to get out and see so much of America. There’s still lots of hard work to do though!”
Not too much work though, as she’s already climbed to number 27 in the Billboard Hot 100 and is number seven in the download chart.
A word of advice for our overseas friends: whatever you do, don’t jagger her swagger. She absolutely hates that.
