Everyone thought that Misha Bryan was going to win the X Factor last year, but perhaps it was for the best that she didn't.
The 20-year-old singer has taken her time in making her music, and perfecting her image and now she's back with a debut single and a glamorous video to accompany it.
In exclusive images, Misha B is seen showing off her slimmer figure as she dances along to her new song Home Run.

Me and my crew: The former X Factor star was joined by backing dancers in the video shoot
The Manchester-born star is seen wearing a pair of black and white cross-print jeans from Missguided.co.uk, and a vest with the letter B emblazoned on it and red platform boots as she poses with her backing dancers.
The professionals are said to have spent four days rehearsing their routine before heading to the Middlesex studio, where they joined the young artist.
The shoot – which took place from 10am until 3am the following morning – saw the hair and make-up team go through ten cans of hairspray and five red lipsticks, and it certainly paid off.

In another image, Misha shows off her girly side wearing a short black dress, bright green boots from daisystreetshoes.co.uk and a colourful Galibardy necklace as she prepared to shoot the video.
Another resource that the team used plenty of was neon paint in all different colours.
Twenty tins were used to cover Misha and her backing dancers, and in another shot she is seen showing off her fierce nails with her face painted.
Time to shine: The Manchester-born singer appeared to be at ease as she filmed her first music video
Speaking about new single, Misha said: 'Home Run is about that special someone who gets you so excited, so hyped that you lose control! When I perform it, I feel that same energy on stage – it makes you wanna dance.
'It is based on a ballad I wrote about my ex and I just changed it up to give it a fresh, fun vibe.
The song – which is released next month – has been described as being reggae-infused, and features jolting percussion and drum and bass influenced beats combined with Misha's soulful vocals.
Happy to be here: Misha continued her promotional yesterday with a trip to a Manchester radio station
Misha has already begun her promotional tour and yesterday was seen arriving at Key 103 radio station in her hometown, where she had a permanent grin on her face.
She continued her quirky style by wearing a pink cropped sweater that featured an image of an ice cream on the front, a high-waisted white skirt and platform baseball boots.
That was then: Misha made it to the semi-finals on the X Factor last year
