Amelia Lily

AGE: 16
LOCATION: Middlesborough
MENTOR: Kelly Rowland

Amelia is a contestant on X Factor 2011, she was eliminated in week one but was voted back on the show in week 6.

Amelia’s brother, Lewis, talked her into auditioning for The X Factor. Amelia attends dance school and performs in an annual show every year. She also takes part in musical theatre. She is always singing around the home and owns a microphone that she uses to sing to her family. Her dad is her biggest fan. Amelia lives her life by something Lewis told her: ‘Always believe in yourself or nobody will believe in you.’

How does Amelia feel about getting to the live shows? ‘I can’t believe it, I thought Kelly was going to say no. I know I get compared to a lot of other people in the music industry but I am young and there is a lot more room for me to develop. I’m so excited I’m just going to work my socks off, I really am. To be singing to the whole country feels unbelievable, I’m so happy.’
