Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

This is good news, if only becuase Eddie Munster didn't win.

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

I thought someone said that she couldn't win because British public do not vote for black reality contestants? Oh, well. Perhaps it's because of her white mother.

Congrats to her. She is talented.

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

I certainly believe that being black is a significant disadvantage in such shows in Britiain, albeit one that is not insumountable. The evidence down the years is very strong.

I wouldn't classify her as black anyway.

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

It's finally over. Is her single any good?

Women's tennis sucks.

That's what people said after the first season of American Idol, too, and then Idols 2 and 3 were black.

No. It's personality free glossy MOR balladry at it's worst.

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

She does have a nice voice, but that programme goes on too long and takes up way too much air time, thank goodness it's over for another year!

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

Re: LEONA wins the X-FACTOR!

yeah if you say so jackass.

if Leona gets decent songs she'll do very well.

She won it after the 'ensemble' which was rubish but just showed Ray up for the 10 to a penny singer he is. Followed by them both singing the same song and you couldn't even compare.

Both finalists were worthless!!! Supernova shut up Ray was worthless certainly but Leona worthless? Get real she was head and shoulders better than all the other contestants this year. It wasn't even a competition but a showcase of Leonas talent. If you can't see that then you know nothing about singing or are seriously deluded.

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Naomi Broady, Tara Moore, Heather Watson , Laura Robson

Johanna Konta, Eleanor Dean
