After leaving school in year twelve to pursue a career in music, 18 year old Bella Ferraro auditioned for X-Factor 2012 with the inspiration of the UK’s boy band One Direction in mind. Bella was an instant star, with media centralising the show around her & receiving comments from judges of the show saying that it was the best audition they had ever seen.

With some hiccups in the beginning of the show due to forgetting the lyrics to her assigned songs, Bella started off pretty rocky, but with the support and guidance from her mentor Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Bella improved week by week within the show, firing off one outstanding performance after another.

Unfortunately in the second last week Bella was voted off, coming 4th in the competition, which is still a major achievement. But now Bella is back, with an outstanding single written by Hayley Warner & Louis Schoorl, her debut single "Set Me On Fire" is destined to be a hit.
