The X Factor
She impressed the judges with her self-penned song "Last Night". The song was subsequently released on iTunes and charted at #11 on the official UK charts. She successfully made it to Judges' Houses as part of the Girls category mentored by Tulisa Contostavlos.
She made it as far as Week 4 and although she was unable to perform that week due to illness, she was handed a bye to the following week. The following week she was still too sick to perform and decided to withdraw from the competition as she felt it was unfair to the other competitors if she got another free pass.

Post The X Factor
In March 2013, she announced that she had been signed to Columbia Records and she released her debut album "Join the Club", which peaked at #7 on the UK album charts. The same year she was engaged in a war of words on Twitter when fellow finalist James Arthur released a song containing a homophobic slur. He subsequently apologised for his behavior following the incident.
To date she has released three studio albums and five singles and in 2014 appeared as a featured artist on Santa Maradona F.C.'s single "Give Me Sunshine".
