Victoria Loren Kelly (born December 14, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress who slowly gained recognition after starting to post videos on You Tube at the age of 14.
She made a second appearance on the show in the Tournament of Champions, but lost to Antonio Pontarelli, a rock musician.
Afterwards, she was asked to take part in a youth version of the 1985 charity song "We Are the World" titled "We Are the World: The Next Generation".
Although former judge Simon Cowell appeared to find Kelly's voice "almost annoying", she carried on performing and writing songs.
By the end of November the EP had sold more than 16,000 copies, debuting at number 16 on the US Billboard 200.
Kelly was featured on the medley "Winter Wonderland"/"Don't Worry Be Happy" on Pentatonix's album That's Christmas to Me that was released in October 2014.
On May 1, 2012, she released her first EP, titled Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly, which was released on her own label, Toraay Records.
