Video: Leona Lewis – Is there a better singer out there?

Every once in a while, a special musical talent is unearthed.

Currently appearing on Simon Cowell’s UK Based Reality TV Show ‘The X Factor’ (a much better variant of American Idol)…..may I present you Leona Lewis.

Quite simply one of the best female vocalist I have ever heard. It’s quite frightening how good she is now – how will she be in a few years?

Watch her take on Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’ Live…..quite simply….incredible.

    Totally breathtaking!!

    I really hope she wins the competition. It’s very rare to see talented singers like her…in fact, it’s rare to see Simon has this much approval for someone 🙂

  2. The Alchemist says:

    **** me! I’ve got chillz…… She is special

  3. VideoDave says:

    Find her ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’, you will not have heard of it done like that before. Try to get through it without crying.

  4. toxy says:

    Angelo: Yeh dude, I’ve never seen him rave over anyone like her.

    The Alchemist: Indeed…she is fantastic.

    VideoDave: I’ve been watching the entire season. She’s been ridiculously good all the way through.

  5. Fonzy says:

    impressive… watched a few episodes of american idol and personally i see it as a comedy show.. i watch it just to see the judges diss the contestants. but this leona lewis is going places for sure

  6. toxy says:

    Fonz: X Factor is a completely different concept. Much cooler.

    There are 3 judges, each get given a category to ‘mentor’…..

    1)16-24’s

    2) The Bands

    3) Over 24’s

    At the end of the night – the bottom 2 (lowest public votes) face off to stay in the contest.

    The JUDGES then have to select the person who gets kicked out….Obviously the Judges are fighting to keep their Acts in the competition – which puts a great twist on the proceedings. It’s even more exciting when one of the Judges has both his acts in the bottom 2 cause he has to kick his own act out!

    I’ve been voting for her! The final is on Sat, I can’t wait!

    I hope Ray doesnt win!

    LEONAAAAA IS AMAZING!

    I downloaded her songs in mp3 and put on my poddy

    Check out her performance of SUMMERTIME *HAWT*

  8. ananyah says:

    she puts a shiver down my spine!

  9. […] Toxy posted about Leona Lewis from the UK Show ‘X Factor’ which is a better version of the US American Idol which Simon Cowell also owns. I’ve been meaning to post about her for a while, but other things came out. […]

  10. VideoDave says:

    Listen to this track which has just come up on UTOOB. Shes singing her own song called Paradise and its like WOW. Its about 2 years old from a demo she did trying to get signed

    I think this would hit the charts any day!

  11. sunny_side_q8 says:

    Gorgeous…..wow wow wow wow.

  12. Fonzy says:

    wow… so basically the contestants are competing with each other and the judges in one way or another as well…. now that is a must see show! what channel do they play it on?

  13. toxy says:

    Anny: I would be voting too if I was in the UK! Ray is a cool dude, but he’s not even that good a singer. The final should have been Leona vs Ben. He was great.

    VideoDave: Thanks for the clip! I heard she made a demo, first time of hearing it, her voice is even better nowadays!

    Sunny: yeh yeh

    Fonz: Exactly….thats it. The judges get bragging rights cause they win the show. It sometimes gets evil as one one Judge usually has the casting vote! It’s only on torrent dude! It airs on Saturday night in the UK.

  14. Amal says:

    Beautiful. That’s just beautiful.

    What more can one say?

  15. ananyah says:

    Did u watch the final yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet?

    I can’t hold the answer in any more 😛

    Go see my blog!

    Videos are up, so are mp3s

  16. g says:

    leona is the best singer ever well done keep it up

  17. Charlie says:

    Leona is amazing i hope simon doesnt give her boring slow songs like he did with the winner of the last x factor.

  18. VideoDave says:

    Try http://www.leonalewisfansite.co.uk

    on the forums you can download ‘Leona lewis- The winners storey’ in HighQ wmv format.

    A 1 hour special, it has a lot of behind the scenes footage. Its worth it just to see Simons reactions to her that you didn’t see on the TV. He was totally smitten by her from the minute she walked into the audition. He said when she sang at bootcamp he actually got goosebumps, not like Simon at all.

    It looks like SonyBMG see her as their salvation, they are throwing so much money at her and she has been given an entourage to rival J-Lo’s.

    Charlie: As Mark Hudson said, she can sing the phone book and make it sound good.

  19. deejay rusty says:

    OH YES SHE IS DAMN FINE, SHE AINT BAD LOOKING NEITHER!!!
    IVE LOVED HER VOICE ALL THE WAY THROUGH, THEN WHEN SHE SANG ‘SUMMERTIME’, IT ACTUALLY MADE ME CRY, SHE IS A PHENOMENON.
    I CANT WAIT FOR HER ALBUM….ANY ONE KNOW WHEN ITS OUT????

  20. Mazzie says:

    Here’s spectacular for you..a 15 year old Leona Lewis singing a duet of “Loving You”

  21. gregory says:

    Leona Lewis rocks my world she is as good as mariah carey and that’s saying something, the tracks paradise and loving you are quite astonishing there will not be anyone on american idol that can match the quality of leona. So the rest of the competaters can forget about it and leave simon cowel alone in peace.

  22. Aidan says:

    Incredible, Magnificent, Amazing, Powerful, Astonishing, Wonderful, Awesome.
    Leona, Your the BEST.

  23. wendy says:

    im from the uk and leona has broken the record for the fastest selling single and album in the uk, her album is just amazing the range of songs and vocals of this outstanding artist is breathtaking, each song on her album could be a huge number 1 hit, please check TAKE A BOW, HOMELESS, FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND, YESTERDAY AND THE FIRST TIME, from her album all songs show her vocal ability but those in particular.
    Leona the uk loves you, something finally to be proud off.
