Award-winning actor and solo artist Lucie Jones first came to prominence when she reached the finals of ITV’s The X Factor in 2009. Quickly winning the hearts of the nation, she became a household name to the millions of viewers who supported her and watched her perform week after week. Following the TV show, Lucie embarked on the 56-date national arena tour with her fellow contestants, performing to sell-out crowds. Lucie is a lead vocalist on the number-one single ‘You Are Not Alone’, recorded by the 2009 The X Factor finalists. Since then, Lucie has performed all over the world as a solo artist and in many musical theatre productions to great success.
Lucie recently performed a successful run in the coveted role of Jenna Hunterson in Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre, London. Lucie was offered the role of Jenna after impressing an audition panel that included multi-Grammy nominee, Tony Awards host and Waitress composer Sara Bareilles. Lucie has, so far, won three awards for her performance in Waitress. Audiences at the Adelphi fell in love with Lucie and her take on the role, and she has received five-star reviews across the board.
Some of Lucie’s other roles include Ghost of Christmas Past in Christmas Carol (Dominion Theatre, London), Heidi in Title Of Show (Coliseum, London), Maureen in RENT (The Other Palace and UK Tour), Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (Leicester Curve, UK Tour, and South Korea Opera House: Winner of the Daegu International Music Festival’s Best Actress in a Musical Award), Cosette in Les Misérables, (Queen’s and 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 Arena), Victoria in American Psycho (Almeida), Molly in Ghost (International Tour), Emily in A Christmas Carol (Lyceum) Ghost of Christmas Past in Christmas Carol (Dominion) and Lou in Girlfriends (Bishopsgate Institute – all for LMTO), Meatloaf in We Will Rock You (International Arena Tour) and Holly in The Wedding Singer (UK Tour).

In 2017, Lucie was approached by a panel of record label executives and BBC producers to take part in the UK live televised final of Eurovision: You Decide, for a chance to represent the United Kingdom at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv (Kiev), Ukraine. Lucie was delighted to win the public vote and subsequently released her first solo single and music video for her song ‘Never give up on you’. Lucie performed at the live final to a worldwide audience of over 300 million viewers. The final result was the best the UK had received in eight years.
In 2020, Lucie performed a live solo concert to a sell-out audience at London’s Adelphi Theatre. Accompanied by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, the concert was recorded for a live album- “Lucie Jones- Live at The Adelphi”. The album has been a great success and is available to stream everywhere now.
During 2020, Lucie has been using her time away from the stage to connect with singers across the globe and share her experience, technique and passion with them through teaching voice and acting. Lockdown has given the opportunity for Lucie to connect with over 500 students in 1 to 1 coaching sessions and online group workshops. Lucie has also performed live stream concerts, taken part in online charity fundraisers and played "Heidi" in [Title of Show] - a full musical performed and recorded at London Coliseum before the second national lockdown.
In May 2021, Lucie joined the cast of Les Misérables: The Staged Concert to play Fantine in a limited summer run at the Sondheim Theatre. Lucie is currently playing Jenna Hunterson on the first U.K tour of "Waitress". Lucie is thrilled to be back and is looking forward to seeing you on the road.
