Making it all the way to the final on the X Factor, Scarlett has a big voice, her vocals never disappointed every week she delivered with show stopping performances just like she will on this years X Factor tour.
Thank you to Scarlett for taking time to speak with Music Promotions as the X factor tour 2019 begins.
See the full interview below as Scarlett talks life after the X factor, performing with Robbie Williams, song writing and much more.
What’s been happening for you since the X Factor?
It’s been really crazy. I think we’ve all been prepping for the Tour. The Tour is very important, so we’ve been having a lot of vocal rest and it’s nice to get back into it now. Coming from The X Factor is like a rollercoaster and after leaving it goes a bit quieter, so to be back on the tour, it’s good to have that buzz again!
How would you describe your time on the X Factor?
Magical! I always say magical because I feel like it’s more than good. It’s more than amazing! It’s literally magical, because you don’t know what’s going to happen, but yet you evolve as a person, as an artist. I feel like I walked in and came out as the same person, which I think is very important, but I also feel like I’ve grown up a lot and learned a lot about myself.
Are you planning on releasing original music and what kinds of style can we expect from you?
100%. Original music is definitely in my pipeline. I’m writing all the time. Especially on the tour bus, I’ve been writing around three songs every journey. What you’ve seen on the show, I wouldn’t do anything that I didn’t love, and the music that I picked for the show is what I would do if it was mine. I think that’s a hint – RnB, Pop. But I also love soul – artists like Amy Winehouse really inspire me.
You collaborated with both Robbie and Leona any possible duets in the works?
I am actually performing with Robbie at Hyde Park BST, so that’s going to be an unbelievable moment. Me and Bella have also written a song together and we are going into the studio to record it. We’ll definitely also perform it at some events that we’ve got coming up.
You’ve had the first night of the tour yesterday. What was that like?
You know what – it was very mixed emotions. I feel like I should have been nervous. I was very calm. When I got out there I got very emotional while singing ‘Your Song’ by Elton John, because I could see in the reflection on the cameras that there were baby pictures of me on the screens behind me. It made me very emotional thinking that there are people with my name on their t-shirts and they’re screaming my name and I was only a child then and now I’m standing on this big stage. I just feel like it gets very emotional, but I think tonight is going to be a little bit better, because I’ve got to pull myself together. I’m not allowed to cry tonight.
What can we expect from you on the X Factor Tour?
They can expect us as individual artists, coming together and having a big massive party! There’s no pressure. There’s no worrying what if something goes wrong, because we are all here to help each other out. It is amazing! I also don’t think it’s going to be what everyone thinks it is. Personally, watching it last night, I didn’t think it was anything like I thought it was going to be. It was so individual. It caters for everyone, so all ages can enjoy it. And I can’t wait to meet some more of our fans as well!
