Musical artist

Emily Middlemas (born 26 September 1998) is a Scottish singer-songwriter, best known for finishing fourth in the thirteenth series of The X Factor.[1] She also competed in the eleventh series of the show, and reached judges’ houses, but failed to reach the live shows.[2]

Early life

Middlemas was born on 26 September 1998, in Glasgow, Scotland. Middlemas attended Woodfarm High School. In 2014, she won TeenStar, a competition held in Birmingham. Middlemas also tried out for Britain’s Got Talent at a young age, forging her mother’s signature so that she could audition.[3]


At age 9, Middlemas started her performing career in a band called Loud N Proud.[4] At 13, Middlemas went solo and wrote her songs.[4]

2016: The X Factor

Middlemas auditioned for the thirteenth series of The X Factor UK in 2016, singing a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster (Jammin')", which earned her four yeses from the judges. Middlemas was placed in the "girls" category and reached the live shows, where she was mentored by Simon Cowell. Following the eliminations of Gifty Louise in week 4 and Sam Lavery in week 6, Middlemas became Cowell's last remaining act in the competition. She was in the bottom two in the semi-final, against Matt Terry, and was eliminated in fourth place.[5]

2017–present: Music releases

In 2017, Middlemas released her first single "Lost & Found", followed by her second single "Layla" in 2018, a tribute to a young girl who died from neuroblastoma cancer.[6] Later that year, Middlemas released two further singles, titled “Habit” and “Broken Record”.[7][8]
