Fleur East rocked the X Factor in 2014 with a show-stopping performance of Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk.

Now, the popular singer is back, and this time she has recorded a cover for a new Virgin Media ad.

The 27-year-old sings Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys and absolutely smashes it.

“I have always been a huge fan of Alicia Keys – I covered her songs when I was on last year’s X Factor,” she said.

“Covering Girl On Fire for the new Virgin Media ad has been so much fun – my original material on the new album is mostly upbeat, so covering a ballad has been a good change.

“I am privileged to cover someone as iconic as Alicia, and that relates to inspirational women too.”

We think she did a pretty amazing job!
