Scarlett Lee (born 20 September 1997) is an English singer. In 2018, she finished as runner-up in the fifteenth series of The X Factor.[1] She also competed in the fourteenth series and reached the six chair challenge, but failed to proceed further.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Lee, a British Romany, was born on 20 September 1997 in Surrey, England. Before The X Factor, Lee worked as a makeup artist.[2] During The X Factor, Lee was involved in a fire, when her brother's caravan set alight. Lee was in the neighbouring caravan at the time, and was later taken into hospital.[3][4] In January 2019, Lee became engaged to Nathan Shaw.[5]


2017: The X Factor[edit]

Lee first auditioned for The X Factor in 2017 when aged 19, where she reached six-chair challenge. She was briefly given a seat by her mentor Sharon Osbourne after her performance of "Without You" by David Guetta feat. Usher, but was later sent home after a dramatic sing-off between her and eventual finalists Rai-Elle Williams and Alisah Bonaobra, during which she sang "The Power of Love" by Jennifer Rush.

2018: Return to The X Factor[edit]

In her first audition this series, Lee performed her own original song "Survival", but was stopped by Simon Cowell, who was unimpressed with the song. As Cowell urged her to use her performance to convince the audience to root for her, she performed a cover of Loren Allred's "Never Enough" which earned her four yes votes from the judges.

In the quarter-final's results, after the elimination of Bella Penfold and Shan Ako, she became the last act in the Girls' category. She finished the competition as the runner-up. Her winners song would've been One More Sleep performed with Leona Lewis, which she performed in the final.[6]
