Your newest single, “Firestarter” has just been released. Can we expect upcoming music to have a similar sound?
Yes, definitely . There are a few party anthems like firestarter on the album. Along with some heart wrenching ballads too.
What has been the biggest change to your life since beginning the X-Factor?
I think the fact that now I get to wake up and love my job. I get to sing every day and that is the dream.
Throughout your entire career, what has been the most surreal moment?
Definitely when they announced me as the winner on the X Factor. I was so shocked and excited and couldnt believe it. All of the hard work and dedication payed off and it was really nice to hear that Australia embraced me .
Who are your musical inspirations?
I love Beyonce. I think she is such an all rounder talent and such a hard worker.
What can we expect from you in the next few months?

What advice would you give to your 16 year old self?
I wish I could go back and tell myself to not listen to people that put you down or hate on you. I wish I knew that I was beautiful.
Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
I hope I have a successful album out and maybe a clothing or make up line!
