Vickers admits to stage fright
Diana Vickers has admitted she gets so scared before going on stage that she "shakes".
The 18-year-old told Star magazine: "I get so scared, it's like I'm possessed by the devil and I come out with all these different voices ... and I'm shaking! But you just have to go with it and get out there.
"And then the second before I step on stage, I scream my head off! It's insane."
The anxious singer also has nightmares that something will go wrong during her performances, saying: "Recently I had a dream that I was on stage and my band just stopped playing and then I forgot my words. It was awful, but I get those dreams all the time. Or the ones where you're on stage and you're suddenly naked."
Despite only finishing fourth on 2008's The X-Factor, the Lancashire lass has enjoyed huge success with her debut single Once and album Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree - both shooting straight to No 1.
With the release of her new single The Boy Who Murdered Love and a support slot on the upcoming JLS tour, the youngster's impressive rise to pop stardom looks set to continue.
