Leona Lewis will she become X-Factor's first Mega Star - And what does the US think?

Leona Lewis is a conestant on the UK's X-Factor (a bit like American Idol with Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne as judges)

She is being touted as the next best thing and apparently big names in the US are keeping an eye on her. So I ask is she just all hot air or does she have the potential to become a star? I'd especially like to see what the Americans think of her.


Here are a few of her perfomances:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=9eGOwdLSUrM - I will Always Love You - This performance just blew me away and proved to me that she should win the show, it is almost as good as Whitney

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3vwrkU6KVY&NR - Lady marmalade - A more up beat song...not her best but she was ill at the time (there is a little bit before she starts singing)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygoBM...elated&search= Like A Bridge Over Troubled Waters - Oh My Word...is all I have to say about this.


No girl has ever won X-Factor, I hope Leona can change that!

I found out about her through PerezHilton.com because Perez loves her. I think she's amazing, and I'd love to see her become a star. Some of the songs she's done have been flawless.

I loved her performance of Summertime.

She's good.

Women's tennis sucks.

She's nothing special, she's an average at best singer, she's got average looks and she does not deserve a record contract, she's the poor man's Beyonce, Chrstina, Mariah and Kelly.

GOOOO MACDONALD BROTHERS!!!!

Leona is black, black people don't win UK reality shows. It's a fact.

Hell, I'm white and not keen on the race card, but it's so true

Having said that, not winning could still mean lots of success. So Leona, has a small chance of creating something in the US.

What black person was ever robbed of a reality show win in the UK.

A couple of gay people and a transexual have won big shows, why not a black girl?

Only one I can think of is Lemar, maybe.

I still think she is the favourite to win though.

Re: Leona Lewis will she become X-Factor's first Mega Star - And what does the US think?

She's good and deserves to win the show, as shes the best of the rest left but she is being waaaaaay overhyped by Simon Cowell. He gives her a standing ovation every performance and its mainly just because she's his act, he never ever gave Jennifer Huson or Latoya London standing ovations when they brought the house down on IA and ever Randy and Paula were on their feet here's ill show you's

Leona - Bridge Over Troubled Water
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygoBM...elated&search=

Latoya London - Dont Rain On My Parade
http://youtube.com/watch?v=yq4rRuSMDNI

Im sorry but i dont know how you give a standing ovation to Leona and not Latoya, the only downside to leona is that Simon Cowell is her mentor, he is way OTT, im sure if Leona wasnt his act he would be saying she's a 3rd rate Mariah

Anyways i hope she wins Xfactor

Re: Leona Lewis will she become X-Factor's first Mega Star - And what does the US think?

I don't see why her race should have anything to do with it. It's a sad fact but the best person doesn't always win. Anyone remember Sian and Russell from that singing show? Sian couldn't sing for tuppence, yet she won. Zoe Ball came third behind Colin and Darren in Strictly Come Dancing despite the fact she was considerably better at dancing than Darren, and some would argue Colin too. Some people just didn't take to her personality.

The fact Leona's female is probably a bigger hindrance right now.

Exactly the word SO supportive of her, do you really think he would be giving her standing ovations if she was Sharon or Louis act. I dont think so, plus Ben and Leon are 2 different types of singers
