X Factor: meet the twelve finalists through to the live shows

The Girls – Tamera Foster

Age: 16

Occupation: Student

Tamera, who was originally part of singing duo Silver Rock and was split up from her partner Jerrie Dila in the small room auditions, wowed the judges with her vocal range at the arena audition, despite forgetting her lines. Her dream is to be an international pop star and tour the world.

"I feel so blessed to have gotten through to the live shows," said Tamera. "It's such a crazy feeling, I'm so lucky. How many people my age get this kind of opportunity? I'm going to love every second of it!

"I think the thing I'm most excited about is being in front of an audience. Ever since Bootcamp I've realised what a buzz it gives you and I can't wait to feel that way again.

"I only met Jerrie a week beforehand the small room audition. We had been following one another on Instagram for a few months, and after she saw a post of me singing, she asked me to audition with her. She made my fate — she's a blessing in disguise." Photo: © ITV
