Fleur East (born 29 October 1987), also known mononymously as Fleur, is a British recording artist. She competed on the second series of televised singing competition The X Factor in 2005 as a member of the girl group Addictiv Ladies. In 2012, she launched a solo career with the record label Strictly Rhythm and released songs with dance musicians including DJ Fresh and Drumsound & Bassline Smith.

East returned to The X Factor as a solo artist in 2014 for its eleventh series, where she placed runner-up. She became the show’s first contestant to reach number one on the UK iTunes Store chart during the competition with her performance of “Uptown Funk” (originally by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars). In 2015, she signed to Syco Music and began work on a full-length album.

The 26-year-old vocalist blew Simon Cowell away with her Judges’ Houses performance, putting her safely into his top three and securing her place in the live shows of the ITV talent show.

After doing okay but not spectacularly in her auditions, Fleur found herself being the surprise of the competition at the Judges Houses stage when her performance of Jessie J’s Bang Bang blew Simon and Sinitta away.

“I had to do something special,” she explained. “I knew I couldn’t afford to be complacent. I knew I hadn’t done enough enough up until this point.

“I’d had a few good comments, but I wasn’t up there. I had to go in all guns blazing and that’s what I did. I really didn’t know what Simon was thinking.

“Up until this point I’ve thought, ‘I must not be good enough, because I’ve had so many knock backs and if I was good enough, it would have happened by now’.”

In January 2015, East announced that she had signed to Cowell’s record label Syco Music. She has been recording her debut album with musicians including Wayne Hector, The Invisible Men, Jack Splash, and TMS. She announced in July 2015 that she had been working on her first fashion collection with women’s fashion brand Lipsy London.[26]

On 4 October 2015, East announced that “Sax”, the first single from her debut album, would be released on 23 October 2015.
