If One Direction can come third on The X Factor and go on to score worldwide success that even has the power to stop Justin Bieber winning a fan-voted VMA, then so can Amelia Lily. At least, that’s the dream.
The hotshot, who’s on course for a No1 debut this weekend with ‘You Bring Me Joy’, told Capital FM that she’s already got her eyes on the US of A. “When I went to LA for the music video, I just looked around and I kept thinking in my head that I can see myself out here,” she said. “Not even just music-wise, like living-wise as well… The UK will always be my home but I would like to eventually go out there because I just think it’s so inspiring out there.
Continuing her passionate speech, she added: “It really makes you want to go further and more determined but I’d love to go to America one day with my music and stuff. It’s amazing watching One Direction because they went through the same journey as me – they came third [on The X Factor] and now they’re playing at Madison Square Garden. That’s my dream. So maybe one day, fingers crossed.”
