Tamera Foster (born 28 January 1997) is a student from Gravesend in Kent. She originally auditioned as part of duo Silver Rock with a woman called Jerrie Bafundila, better known as Jerrie Dila, whom she met just days before their audition, but the judges split them up into solo artists after rejecting them as a duo. At the arena, Bafundila failed to reach bootcamp, and, after forgetting one line whilst singing “I Have Nothing” and ran off the stage to ask what it was, Foster nearly did as well. However, she sang again and got through. At bootcamp she sang “Stay” and at judges’ houses she sang “Fallin'” and “No More Drama” (in front of original artist Mary J. Blige, who was Scherzinger’s assistant).
In week 4, Foster was in the bottom two with Kingsland Road, but was saved by Walsh, Osbourne and Scherzinger. Following the eliminations of Abi Alton in week 5 and Hannah Barrett in week 7, Foster became the last girl left in the competition. She was again in the bottom two in week 8 with Luke Friend and was eliminated by the public vote, losing out for a place in the semi-final, finishing in fifth place and becoming the last of Scherzinger’s acts to leave the competition.
On 20 January 2014, it was reported that Foster had signed a record deal with Sony Music. On 15 March, she confirmed that she had been signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Music.
