She had previously auditioned in 2005 as part of the group Addictiv Ladies, then mentored too by Cowell, where they made it to the live shows, but only finished in 12th place.
She returned in 2014 as a soloist and made it all the way to Judges' Houses as part of the Over 25s category, again mentored by Simon Cowell. He selected her as one of his Top 3 finalists for the live shows.
Throughout the live shows she impressed everyone with her performances and notably caught the attention of the British media with her semi final performance of Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk". She performed the song again during the final and finished as runner-up to Ben Haenow.
