But Electra, 40, wasn't able to bring it to life until she was approached by Grammy-nominated producer Bill Hamel, who has worked with Madonna, U2, Rihanna, and Justin Timberlake. "When I heard the track for 'I Like It Loud,' I just knew, 'This is me, I wanna do it! I wanna go for it,'" she raves. And the opportunity to work with Hamel, whom Electra describes as "a sick producer," was one that "I couldn't pass up." Although recording "I Like It Loud" was initially supposed to be just a one-time thing and only a single, it was such a great experience, Electra recently headed back into the studio to make a full-length album.

Although the two have been spotted out on dates in Los Angeles, Electra is playing coy on the status of the relationship — at least publicly. "We're really good friends," she teases. "We worked together on 'Britain's Got Talent' and we just clicked. I just think he's so funny and so charming, and our personalities really get along well. We had great chemistry on camera, and now that he's in town doing 'X Factor,' we've had more time to hang out. I just adore him. I think he's a sweetheart!"
So then would she date him if he asked? "We would have to see," she says after a lot of nervous laughter that has us convinced they are already an item. As for what she looks for in a guy, Electra, who split from her fiancé Rob Patterson in early October after she was spotted out with Cowell, says she's a sucker for "the bad boy with a good heart" … which pretty much sums up "Mr. Nasty" Cowell, based on her description, doesn't it?
