The X Factor
She performed an original song and gained four yeses. She continued to impress during Bootcamp and made it into the Girls category mentored by Sharon Osbourne, who selected her as one of her six finalists for Judges' Houses. In spite of a shaky performance, she was selected as part of her Top 3 for the live shows.
She topped the public vote on the first night and the following night went head-to-head with winners Rak-Su in order to win a prize, which she ultimately won.
At the quarter final stage, she again topped the public vote and went head to head with Rak-Su in the prize fight, which she lost. With the elimination of wildcard Alisah Bonaobra in Week 3 and the eliminations of Rai-Elle Williams and Holly Tandy in the quarter final, she is the last remaining competitor in the Girls category to make it through to the semi final.
She made it to the final alongside Rak-Su and Kevin Davy White, becoming the first competitor in the Girls category since 2015 champion Louisa Johnson to do so. Along with Rak-Su she made it to the second night of the final, with Kevin Davy White being eliminated in 3rd place.
The following night she finished as runner-up to Rak-Su.
