Kiera Weathers, 18, hails from St Helens and was working as a barmaid before taking part in this year’s X Factor series. Her first appearance was an instant hit with the judges who were impressed by her cover of Ella Eyre’s version of We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off.
However, Kiera’s group challenge was anything but plain sailing with arguments among the contestants.
Luckily, she got her own time in the spotlight during her second solo audition, performing Rixton’s Me and My Broken Heart.
It got emotional at the Six Chair Challenge as Kiera dedicated her audition (Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You) to her mum, who passed away.
