Teenage X Factor sensation Emily Middlemas says Newcastle fans will see a new side to her when she performs in the city in November.

The 19-year-old came fourth in the ITV talent show last year. She's currently playing gigs across the country, and promoting her new single Lost and Found.

Emily, who was mentored by music industry giant Simon Cowell, says although only one year has passed, she has done a lot of growing up.

Emily's stand out moment on The X Factor was during the Halloween special when she sang Creep by Radiohead. She says she will never forget that performance but added that her style has developed and she's now focussing on more upbeat music.

One way to show people who you are is a UK tour, and that's exactly what Emily is doing. She performed in Durham on September 14 and will head back to the North East November for a show at the Think Tank in Newcastle.

Emily has been through The X Factor audition process and has this advice for anyone else taking part in the competition.

Simon Cowell had the same advice for her.

She has taken this advice when it comes to her debut single Lost and Found. The track has a summer feel and it's more upbeat than the tracks we heard from Emily on the show.

Emily says the bond she has with her boyfriend Ryan Lawrie helps her to write music. Ryan also competed on The X Factor last year. He recently released Perfect Picture and said Emily was his inspiration. This seems to work both ways!
