Singer Cher Lloyd expected to showcase new tracks on live shows

American X Factor bosses reportedly want Cher Lloyd to perform on the show when it launches later this year.

The rapper, who came fourth in the UK version, is expected to sing tracks from her new album during the live finals.

‘The team are talking about bringing Cher into the show after hearing feedback from wannabes,’ a source tells The Sun.

Leona Lewis is The X Factor sweetheart in America but Cher is the flip side – talented but edgy.

‘Everyone agrees she will show the American public that you don’t just have to be bubblegum pop to be a success.’

Cher, 17, is keen on breaking America and has already worked with Will.i.am.
