Born on July 28, 1993, Cher Lloyd lived with her parents and three siblings in Malvern before making herself famous through the British series "The X Factor". Lloyd tried out for the singing talent show twice before making it through. Both times, during which she sang ballads, she was rejected.
Lloyd has better luck in the show's seventh series, singing a Keri Hilson version of Soulja Boy's "Turn My Swag On". Judges, especially Cheryl Cole, were impressed by the 16-year-old and the audience gave her a standing ovation. "You were actually my favorite audition so far," Cole commented and later took Lloyd under her guidance.
