X Factor star Ella Henderson cut a stylish figure in New York as she sets her sights on US success.

After topping the charts with her debut single 'Ghost' in the UK, Ella is moving on to exciting new things as she takes her music across the pond in a bid to break the States.

Appearing on Good Morning America yesterday (6 August) for her US television debut, Ella performed her number one track while looking lovely in an all black ensemble.

Cutting a stylish figure for her early morning TV appearance, Ella teamed a pair of black trousers with a sheer jacket and top featuring an opaque pocket design. On her feet, the starlet opted for a chic pair of black courts, finishing her look with a long gold pendant.

Wearing her hair down in tousled waves, Ella finished off her look with a sleek, black mani and a glossy smile as she headed for the stage.

And it seems Ella had a blast waking up America with her powerhouse vocals. Taking to Twitter, she tweeted:

"LOVED THAT!!! Thank you for having me @GMA! & Thank you guys for tuning in and for all your lovely comments! #Ghost #EllaOnGMA Big Love Xx E."

Excited to perform, Ella shared a snap of the GMA stage.

Before taking to the mic, Ella revealed her first album, Chapter One, is comprised of music that is very personal to her.

She said: "Lyrically I write very openly and this album is just about being real, raw and honest and that's the kind of music I'm into, it's like my open diary."

The 18-year-old shot to stardom after auditioning for The X Factor back in 2012 and since leaving the show and releasing her own music, Ella is already a household name.

Recalling the moment she turned 18, Ella said: "It was crazy, I got to write this song with Ryan Tedder from One Republic, so turning 18 and recording my very first single with someone as amazing as that, it was just amazing"

Wow. Who knows what 19 will bring...
