Everything you need to know about X Factor’s Kiera Weathers

18-year-old Kiera has hop, skipped and jumped her way into Rita Ora's final line-up of Girls in this year's live shows


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. 

In LA for this year’s Judges’ Houses, Kiera covered Robin S hit Show Me Love and was the third and final singer added to Rita’s line-up for this year’s live shows. 

Kiera joins Louisa Johnson and Lauren Murray in Rita’s category.


The X Factor live shows kick off Saturday October 31st at 8:00pm on ITV
