NEW YORK, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cher Lloyd's saucy summer smash "Want U Back" rocketed into the Top 10 at iTunes last week, peaking at #5, joining the impressive ranks of certified chart-toppers Katy Perry, Pink and Carly Rae Jepsen.
The vivacious "X Factor UK" star, who competed alongside One Direction in 2010, is bringing her tough but sweet pop sounds to the U.S. via an eagerly anticipated American TV debut on the July 25th edition of "America's Got Talent." The talented teen will perform the irresistible "Want U Back," which Idolator praised saying "Haven't been able to get it out of our heads since we first heard it!" U.S. radio has been quick to catch on to Cher as well, landing "Want U Back" in the Top 15 at Top 40 radio!
The lovely Lloyd garnered an impressive #7 rank on Billboard magazine's list of top shows at her March, 2012 SXSW appearance--out of 2,200 live acts! PerezHilton likewise digs the pop princess, predicting, "Cher Lloyd is on the fast track for SUPERSTARDOM!" Of her recent prestigious festival appearances overseas, BBC Music calls Lloyd "a natural and charismatic vocal presence," while The Mirror swooned, "...she's one of the few British artists with a genuine buzz about her...this lady has genuine talent. Most importantly, she has a bucket full of integrity and can cut it live."
The sweet singer, whose affectionate nickname for her quickly growing legions of fanatics is "Brats," is furthering her Stateside success via the second part of her grass-roots digital campaign: "America Wants Cher Lloyd Back: West Coast Edition." In May, thousands of early fans participated in the first round of the online game for a chance to meet and see Cher perform at radio stations in the mid-west, south and east coast. Ten winners in each city turned into hundreds of fans mobbing the stations for a mere glimpse of Cher: http://bit.ly/OuDVFI.
So, back by popular demand...it's a Brat Attack on the West Coast! The second round of the online game is up and running, and the first 10 Brats in each city Cher visits on her West Coast promo tour to find and unlock all five exclusive badges will meet Cher and see her perform at their local radio station! If Cher isn't playing their city, Brats across the U.S. can play to win a trip for two to see Cher's performance on America's Got Talent July 25th! #It'sAnEpicBratAttack!
