Lee re-auditioned for The X Factor in 2018. She performed her own original song "Survival", but was stopped by Simon Cowell, who was unimpressed with the song.

[4] She successfully made it past bootcamp and the six-chair challenge to judges' houses in the girls category, mentored by Cowell. She was then chosen by Cowell for the live shows.

In the quarter-final's results, after the elimination of Bella Penfold and Shan Ako, she became the last act in the girls' category. She finished the competition as the runner-up. [5]
