'She's very nice. She connects with you.'

Stephanie Nala was originally in a band called 'The Luminites' before she ever made it over to 'X-Factor.' 

Nala was also in the British TV show Britain's Got Talent as a finalist earlier this year before venturing over to the U.S. to see if she could perform here.

Nala spoke about how elated she was to find out that she made Cheryl Cole's finalist picks, and ending up on the show with a second chance at earning the top spot.

'She's very nice. She connects with you, I think. She gets really close and that's why I think she finds it so hard because she loves every single girl and doesn't want to say no.'

Nala's band broke up earlier this year after they lost in the finals of 'Britain's Got Talent,' and decided to pursue her singing career over in America.

On the six-chair challenge she said: 'I was freaking out. All the other girls were amazing. I was just panicking. You didn't know which way it was going to go and I knew who the girls were coming on after me. I thought I was definitely going.

'I can hardly believe it. Having to go last, I whipped myself into a total state. I was in floods of tears even before I got to see Cheryl. All the other girls had been through and I was just sitting on my own, getting more and more worked up. I was convinced it was a "no".'

Nala also spoke about how her hair style helps out her reggae style of music that influences her while on stage.

'I reckon my hair could do with a bit of new colour and a bit of styling. I'm always going to be the girl in trainers and comfy clothes rather than dresses, but it'll be good to see what we can do there.'
