Finally a performance from Cher Lloyd that made us go ‘Do you know she can actually sing!’

Yes, like many people we have had our doubts about Cher’s vocal abilities but last night she made us stand up and take note. She is in it to win it.

On last nights X Factor Cher gave a performance to remember, it was enjoyable from the first note until the last. We very much agreed with Simon’s comment abut watching an artist performing their latest single, to us that is exactly what it looked and sounded like.

On her previous performances we felt she was hiding behind her rapping, last night was different, it felt that the rapping took a back seat and the vocals came through – sometimes Cher, less is definitely more.

Cher said on the night ”This was me, this is the type of artist I want to be”.
In our view, her best performance to date by far.

Judges Comments:

Louis Walsh: Cher you took two brilliant pop anthems and I love what you did on stage, It was like you were in your comfort zone, this is what you love to do. I loved your whole attitude and I think Brian Friedman did an incredible job with it and the styling was amazing.

Dannii Minogue: Cher tonight, this felt like you. This is what you would do at your concert. The staging was incredible, love the way that you looked and as a last note, you sang it really well.

Simon Cowell: I can only tell you that it didn’t feel you were someone taking part in a competition. It felt that you were someone coming back with five hit records and just came back with your new single. You are so confident and the two songs were very very clever, you look healthy, you look happy and I am really really happy for you.

Cheryl Cole: Thank you for being a strong little thing, for allowing me to let myself loose a little bit on there too. You are everything that a popstar should be and I thoroughly enjoy you every Saturday night.
