X Factor: Cher Lloyd's 'Want U Back' enters US Top 10

Cher Lloyd

X Factor star Cher Lloyd has become the latest British singer to crack to the US charts.

Following the success of Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction earlier this year, Cher's debut US single 'Want U Back' has lept to No.7 on the iTunes chart.

Cher has also just had her first TV performance in the US confirmed - and it's a big one - America's Got Talent. She will perform the song, which features X Factor USA star Astro, on the show later this month.

The track was originally released her earlier this year, and somewhat interestingly only made it to 25 in the charts.

Cher said in a statement today: "I'm so excited by everything that is going on!

"I've been touring US radio stations for quite a while now, and it's been fantastic to get out and see so much of America. There's still lots of hard work to do though!"
