Song that got you to the final:

Master Blaster - Stevie Wonder

Did you watch your episode, what was the response from your family and friends?

I did! They all loved it although I think they were more impressed seeing my mum on the telly!

Did you get to know your fellow finalists?

Yes. And we have all stayed in touch after the final, and I have worked with the guys from Xavier!

Song for the final, and why you chose it?

True - Spandau Ballet. I chose this song as I really enjoy singing it, and I thought it would be another surprise for The 100.

How did you feel backstage before you performed in the final?

I was anxious as I felt like I'd made it so far. But, then at the same time, filled with so much joy as I never even expected to make it to the final.

What was the atmosphere like when you walked out in front of The 100?

I was one of the final few acts, so it felt very tense when I walked out. I felt like there was a lot of pressure as I knew the acts that had been out before me were of such a high standard and had so much talent.

What is your favourite all time song and/or artist?

It's hard for me to pick just one as my taste in music is varied, but I would have to say Stevie Wonder is definitely up there. I can listen to him whenever, his music is so uplifting and his songs are iconic.
