Every once in awhile I’m blown away by a contestant on the X-Factor. This week it was Lillie (Nicole) McCloud, a 54 year old, grandmother of 7! McCloud is no stranger to show business and previously performed alongside Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Kool and the Gang.
As a solo performer, McCloud has had a few top 10 hits on the U.S. dance charts, first in 1985 with “Don’t You Want My Love” and again in 1994 with the No. 3 charting “Runnin’ Away.” In 2002, she struck once more with the song “Search’n,” which also earned her a nomination for the International Dance Awards.
As Demi Lovato said after her performance, her time may not have been then, but it definitely is now! Check out McCloud’s performance below!
