Cher Lloyd gets down with her dancers as she prepares to shoot debut music video

By Sarah Bull

This is how I roll: Cher Lloyd joins a group of hopefuls as she auditions dancers for her debut music video

She won over Cheryl Cole with her unique mix of rapping, singing and street dancing when she auditioned for The X Factor.

And now Cher Lloyd has posted a video of herself auditioning dancers for her debut music video - working them hard to ensure they are up to her standards.

The 17-year-old star is seen getting down with the hopefuls to make sure they 'gel' with her.

In the video, Cher says: 'The auditions are going really well. I'm really glad there's bedroom dancers as well.

'I'm looking for fresh-faced people, just people that mix in with the crowd and just back me up really.'

Cher, who wears baggy jeans, a brown vest top and checked blazer, is then seen getting up and joining the group for an impromptu street dancing session.

She explained: 'The reason I got up and started to dance with them was because I wanted to see if they would actually gel with me and to see the interaction.'

Getting down: Cher appeared to be enjoying herself in the video of the auditions, which she posted on her official website

Are we gelling? Cher laughs as she messes around with the dancers

And presumably those who didn't 'gel' with the X Factor runner-up didn't make the cut for the video, expected to be released later this year.

It was also revealed today that So You Think You Can Dance runner up Tommy Franzén has been enlisted to choreograph the routine.

He said: 'I will be choreographing Cher Lloyd's first music video that will be shot on May 17.

'After [having] had two dance auditions for it, we're in the process of finalising who is to be in it. Keep a look out for the video! I believe it's going to be a good one.'

I can do it too: But she was also keen to prove her own worth as she made her way into the centre of the room to dance with the rest of the hopefuls

Cher has been in New York and Los Angeles recently putting the finishing touches to her debut album.

And songwriter Savan Kotecha, who is executive producing the record, said it is sure to be a hit - and sounds just like Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie's first solo album.

He said: 'It's such a blend of different things. Each song is so different from the other, but it's her.

Home again: Cher was seen arriving at London's Heathrow Airport today after her trip Stateside

'The only way I can describe it is that it's like Fergie's solo album, where London Bridge was completely different from Clumsy, but then you also had Big Girls Don't Cry, but Fergie was still the red thread throughout it all - that's how Cher's songs are.

'There's some hard ones, some vulnerable ones and some fun, silly ones and she just delivers on every one. We were just so impressed.'

Cher's debut album is due for release on 12th September.
