The blogosphere has gone Cher Lloyd crazy and who can blame them. She's very talented, had an amazing X-Factor audition and for a 16 year old she's very confident.
However, I cannot help but think that X-Factor the very thing that has made her an overnight obsession maybe the very thing that will damage her career before it has even started.
Her audition itself was very different to what we expect from X-Factor. First of all it was a hip hop song and correct me if I am wrong but wasn't that one of the first, if not the first "urban" track to be well received in an X-Factor audition?
Speaking on This Morning (this morning, lol) Cher Lloyd is quoted in saying "this is the artist I want to be, so I wanted to give an incite into what I would like to bring out".
As we all know X-Factor is a predominantly pop orientated show and past winners like Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke have all gone on to release very poppy bordering cheesy songs.
So, with Cher Lloyd having the best audition of 2010 so far and her being touted as a potential X-Factor winner. Will she be willing to compromise her "Hip Hop" roots for a more polished pop sound, time will tell.
