Cher Lloyd Bio

English pop singer Cher Lloyd rose to fame when she placed fourth in the seventh season of The X Factor UK, since then the 19-year-old has been working her way to the top of the charts. Find out more in her Kidzworld Bio!

Little Lloyd

Cher Lloyd was born July 28th 1993 to parents Darren and Dinah and grew up in Malvern. She has three younger siblings, Josh Sophie and Rosie and attended Stagecoach, a school focused on theater arts, as well as going on to study at Dyson Perrins Sport College. Cher comes from what she describes as a “gypsy” background.

The X Factor

Cher auditioned for The X Factor for previous seasons, but made it through to the final round on her third try, after celebrity judge Cheryl Cole took a shine to the sassy young singer. She first won over the judges with a rendition of Keri Hilson’s “Turn My Swag On” and also went on to prove she had no problem rapping, picking songs like “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)” and “No Diggity,” but it was her singing performances that earned her raves from judges and fans throughout the show. Although she placed fourth in the competition, judge Simon Cowell believed that she had enough talent to make it in the industry and signed her to the label Syco Music, a subsidiary of Sony.

Sticks + Stones

Cher’s first single in the UK was alled “Swagger Jagger” and reached the top of the charts, followed by more successful singles. The full album, Sticks + Stones, reached #4 in the UK as of the beginning of 2012, and Cher made the decision to try and conquer the US market as well with her infectious electro-pop album, and she signed with music producer L.A. Reid to release her album in North America. Her first US single “Want U Back” reached number #5 on the charts. She’s now at work on her sophomore album.

That’s not all that she’s been up to, Cher also signed a modelling contract with Select and in March confirmed her engagement to her boyfriend Craig. Although there was criticism about her getting married so young, Cher has responded to the feedback that in her culture (English gypsy culture) it very normal to be married at a young age, and should have been married already by now!

Check out Cher Lloyd singing “Want U Back” below!

Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
