Cher Lloyd Performs Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' In New York (VIDEO)

X Factor reject Cher Lloyd has showed off her cracking vocals on a street corner in New York, with an acoustic cover of Robyn's hit song Dancing On my Own.

Cher hasn't taken to busking, she is in fact on a promotional tour of the States and the performance - watched by confused passers-by - was for US radio network iHeartRadio.

Speaking in the video above, Cher, who came fourth in the seventh series of Simon Cowell's singing contest, said: "I chose the Robyn song to perform because I really like her as an artist. She does inspire me and I just feel like many of her songs are so good.

"That one in particular was a dance track and then she did the version of it stripped down and I fell in love with it and that's why I like to do it."

After earning a number one with her debut single Swagger Jagger and a number four album with Sticks + Stones in the UK, the 18-year-old is currently drumming up publicity for her new US single Want U Back and earning swathes of fans while she's at it.
