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

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.

A crap season with a crap ending. Both finalists were worthless!!!

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.

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

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

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!

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.

LOL STFU. I just called it how I see it. Whenever I see someone trying to sound like Mariah Carey with all those loopy notes, I don't think much of them at all. Plus I always said that her voice has no variety. It goes from high to higher. IMO a worthless singer. IMO. I know a lot about singing and I'm not deluded. I said I think Leona is good, but she just does sod all for me and she is overhyped as hell!

Good luck to Leona, she's very talented.

Simon Cowell must be bringing up his trouser band to new heights in sheer smugness after getting too of his minions into the final... ;)

You cleary know nothing about singing! I am a classically trained vocalist and i know how technically gifted Leona is, her range is amazing and you are completed thick to say her vocal range goes from high to higher, you clearly aren't listening or know nothing about singing technically, her standard is far superior to Mariah Carey, who has never been able to perform Without You (LIVE) to the standard Leona did on the X-Factor.

and btw, many would tell you that mariah is one of the best singers there are out there, technically and more. and yes, i'm sure you've heard EVERY single live performance of mariah's without you. :rolleyes:

leona is good, i admit, but she's overhyped as hell. and to think that people put her version of summertime over fantasia's is just beyond me.

Having heard both versions i disagree and think leonas version of summertime was better. I do think Fantasia is amazing and could rule the stage and an audience like no one else in these kind of shows but Leonas version of summertime was better IMO!

Not sure about the comparison with Mariah of the early 1990's but Mariah now is a joke.

personally i didn't like leona's version all that much because i didn't think she worked the stage like fantasia did. it was technically great, but i didn't feel it like how i did fantasia's because i thought there was lack of emotion in it.

And i'm not gonna bring up my background in music cos i have nothing to prove to anyone on here but i know pleanty about music to be able to judge singers on their merits and not give some misguided opinion based on my dislike of someone purely because they are being hyped.

If Leona didn't deserve the hype believe you me i would be saying shes overhyped but she isn't.

I can see where your coming from cos they are both completely different performers. The way i see Leonas emotion coming through in the song is through the way it sounded so simple and she draws you in, she captivates you into the song.

Did she actually say her singing is "FAR SUPERIOR" to Mariah Carey? :speakles:

*dead*

Classically trained, my ass.

;) Well done Leona. I must admit, I wasn't too sure of her when the live shows started first but she has well won me over since. I really hope she goes on to have a great career. oh and to have my say on the Leona/Mariah thing, well I don't think you can compare yet someone who has just won a reality contest to a long-established world class diva. You never know though in years to come, Leona definitely has the potential ;)
