    Be A Fighter [2013]


    Amelia Lily (born Amelia Lily Oliver; 16 October 1994) is an English pop singer who finished third in the eighth series of The X Factor in 2011, mentored by Kelly Rowland. Her debut single, "You Bring Me Joy", was released on 9 September 2012 and debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart.

    The daughter of Aranka Bradley and Barry Oliver, Amelia Lily was born on 16 October 1994 in Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough. She studied at the independent, fee-paying Teesside High School, in nearby Eaglescliffe. Before her audition for The X Factor, she posted some cover versions on her YouTube page, including "Someone like You", which has since been viewed over 1 million times. She was also working on the tills at a garden centre in Nunthorpe, for £4.90 an hour, which she "absolutely hated"

    Lily declared in an interview for The Sun that she suffered bullying for five years at a previous school, saying she "had no friends", and "used to come home crying all the time". The newspaper reported that bullies picked on her because of her different style and, even after Lily was asked to sing at an assembly, they said she "would never make it". On a SugarScape interview in August 2012, she revealed that she wanted to be a nun when she was younger.

    After Lily embarked on the X Factor Tour, it was announced that she had signed a £500,000 three-album record deal with Sony subsidiary Xenomania. In August 2012, she reveled that her debut album would feature an eclectic range of genres. In September 2012, she released her debut single, "You Bring Me Joy", which reached number one on iTunes following its release, holding the top spot for 4 days, selling over 50,000 copies on its first week, but it officially charted at number two in the UK (behind "Hall Of Fame" by The Script that sold 9,000 copies more). On 10 October 2012, Lily revealed that she would release "Shut Up (and Give Me Whatever You Got)" as her second single. On 2 November 2012, the single premiered via a lyric video upload on her official YouTube page. "Shut Up (and Give Me Whatever You Got)" was officially released as a single on 18 January 2013, peaking at number 9 on the mid-week charts and number 11 on the UK Singles Chart on 27 January 2013. On 19 February 2013, Lily was announced to be the support act for Girls Aloud's arena tour, Ten: The Hits Tour, which she will participate in from 21 February to 20 March 2013. On 21 February 2013, Lily announced on Twitter that her third single, "Party Over", wound be released as the third single from her upcoming debut album on 14 April 2013.

    Lily credits P!nk as her major musical influence and idol. Amelia also looks up to Kelly Clarkson, and cited her as her hero during The X Factor, singing one of her songs in the show, "Since You Been Gone"

    Lily is a Type 1 insulin dependent diabetic, having been diagnosed with the condition aged three. Amelia is insulin-dependent, she has to have 4 injetions a day, check her blood and keep a balanced diet. She is the half-sister of Any Dream Will Do's Lewis Bradley. She was raised Roman Catholic.
