Watch List: Misha B - Diamonds
Misha Bryan, who performs under the name Misha B, is a U.K. singer/rapper who came to prominence during the 2011 X-Factor in the U.K., making people take notice right from her powerhouse first audition. Mentored on the show by Kelly Rowland, she gave consistently strong performances with her powerful vocals and commanding stage presence, ultimately leaving the show in the semi-final stages. Having left the show, in early 2012 she signed with Relentless Records, participated in the X-Factor Tour of the U.K. and released the mixtape 'Why Hello World'. She subsequently released two singles during 2012, 'Home Run' and 'Do You Think Of Me', and during October/November supported Nicki Minaj on her U.K. tour. With a new mixtape coming, and inspired by James Brown, Beyonce and Michael Jackson, Misha B says her 2013 album will be 'different, it's going to be heavily soul, though, but it's going to be very feel good'. Here, courtesy of ThatGrapeJuiceTV, she covers Rihanna's 'Diamonds', and, below, courtesy of MOBOacoustic-sessions, she gives an acoustic rendition of her song 'Do You Think Of Me'.
