|I'm sporting the windswept look.|
I was invited to her old school in Romford to interview her for the newspaper that I work for. All the staff and pupils were so excited she was coming back, and when she arrived there was such a frenzy.
She was warm and humble, and despite paps saying they wanted a picture of her, she was shy, and asked her old headteacher and drama teacher to come in the photographs with her.
She went on stage, and as tiny as she is, belted out these big numbers and it looked so effortless while singing. The crowd loved her, and she was happy to be back, saying she was proud to have everyone's support behind her.
After her performance I interviewed her, and it is the first time I had met her in person, though I have talked to her and her mum on the phone before. She just seemed grateful to have been given another chance, and wanted people to vote for her.
I was surprised she didn't get through as one of the main contestants, and hope she does get through on Saturday as it will be a shame to see her go when she has so much more to give.
Will you be voting for Amy?
