Amelia Lily underwent an image overhaul because she was fed up of being compared to Pixie Lott.
The 'X Factor' hopeful - who cites Pink has her main musical influence - explained she traded in her blonde locks for a dusky pink look so she could be herself when the live finals of the ITV1 talent show kicked off last night (08.10.11).
Amelia told BANG Showbiz: "I was a bit worried about having a makeover, but I got it done because I was always getting compared to Pixie Lott and Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera.
"Now I've got the short pink look, it's just me and I can't be compared to anyone else. I've still got my image and everything, I've just changed my hair."
However, the 16-year-old singer admitted she asked to have her outfit for last night's performance changed because she felt the first costume she was given was too sexy for her young age.
She added: "The stylists were experimenting with various things, but they ended up having to take me out of the first outfit because it was too revealing for my age. It's definitely better to be careful on a family show like 'The X Factor'.
Four contestants will be eliminated from 'The X Factor' by their mentors - Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos - on tonight's show (09.10.11).
