Amelia Lily is the latest X Factor star to prove that you don’t need to win the show to make it to the top of the charts.
Amelia Lily’s new single Bring Me Joy reached Number One on the iTunes chart earlier this week, knocking Ne-Yo's Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself) off the top spot, and it seems that her new song is set to carry on its success and become No1 on the official single charts this weekend.Woo! Go, Amelia Lily!
The 17-year-old X Factor finalist had a memorable experience on the show when she was eliminated by mentor Kelly Rowland during the first live show and then voted back on and she continued on the finals. She finished third after Marcus Collins and winners Little Mix.
Speaking to the www.Officialcharts.com Amelia said, “It’s still quite hard to believe that I came third in the final of one of the biggest television shows going.
“Now, nearly a year later, I’m releasing my first single! I’d be ecstatic if it got to Number One, but at the same time, I’d be really proud wherever ever it charts because I’ve worked so hard on it,” she added.
