Heat (UK) - - This Week | We’re Obsessed With... -

Con­grats on get­ting through to the live shows! How are you feel­ing?

I’m feel­ing ab­so­lutely in­cred­i­ble. I’m just over­whelmed with hap­pi­ness, so many emo­tions.

What was your first im­pres­sion of Si­mon’s house when you ar­rived in LA?

It was re­ally weird, be­cause you don’t ever think you’ll see these things in real life. When I look at him, I put a box around his head, like he’s still on the TV – I vi­su­alise it like he’s on the TV. It’s re­ally strange.

What did you think when you saw Leona Lewis?

Wow, Leona is like a god­dess, she looks beau­ti­ful. She’s stun­ning. When we first saw her, we were like, “Er­rrrrr!” And she’s just got the loveli­est per­son­al­ity to go with it. She came and spoke to us and gave us a lit­tle girls’ pep talk. It was def­i­nitely needed with all the stress and the pres­sure, so it was nice to come up and say good luck, well done and stuff.

Did you do any snoop­ing around Si’s house?

Yeah! After [my per­for­mance], I was re­ally hun­gry, so I went into Si­mon Cow­ell’s kitchen with his girl­friend [Lau­ren Sil­ver­man], and I was eat­ing Si­mon Cow­ell’s Twiglets. They were the nicest Twiglets I’ve ever eaten – I think it was be­cause they were out of Si­mon’s cup­board. But it was mad. [Lau­ren] was so nor­mal. She was like, “Girls, I’ve just got to take my shoes off cos my feet are f**king hurt­ing.” She just wanted to feed me. She was re­ally moth­erly.

Have you thought about get­ting all the way to the fi­nal?

I’ve def­i­nitely thought about it. Be­cause, as much as there’s so many tal­ented peo­ple, you’ve got to be­lieve in your­self and be­lieve that you could do it. I think it’s all about your mind­set be­ing pos­i­tive.

Who would you want to duet with if you make it there?

Stor­mzy. I’d re­ally like to do

Blinded By Grace with him. He was the one that got me to Judges’ Houses – it was the per­fect song for me.
