Top X Factor Contestants
I started watching this season of X Factor after flipping through channels one night. I just happened to stop right when he was being introduced for the four chair challenge. I immediately fell in love with his voice. I became mesmerized by it, to say the least. I couldn't count the times that I listened to his performances over and over again. How he has not been discovered until now is a mystery. He has so much talent. And his stage presence is so strong. It got stronger and stronger with each of his performances. It was like he was letting us in a little more each time. You could definitely tell Talon was super proud of his daddy. Man he is one adorable little boy! I can't wait until Jeff starts touring. I will definitely be there. Hopefully front row. I don't care what I have to pay. It'll be well worth it to experience such amazing talent in person. Good luck Jeff. We love you!
Words cannot express how much respect I hold for Jeff. Not only is his voice a good mix of some of the greatest rock legends, he is just the essence of humanity. Jeff often said that he'd been dreaming of being a rockstar since he was six years old, and the fact that he persevered and is still fighting while many others would have stopped long ago is just amazing. And you can tell that by the way he looks at Talon he simply loves him, and Talon loves him too. People have said that bringing up his son is a sob story, but that's not Jeff's fault, it's the public's. Stereotypes nowadays are there's only single moms, that dads shouldn't have to, blah blah blah. Jeff loves Talon, and he states it openly. Let's all applaud him right now, and wish this amazing man an amazing career.
I fell in love with Jeff Gutt and his phenomenal voice watching The X Factor 2012 in his outstanding audition singing one of my favorite songs ever, "Hallelujah" I absolutely loved him and when he didn't even make it past boot camp I was utterly shocked! This season, Jeff came back and stopped at nothing to grab the win. Even though he finished in 2nd, he is by far one of the most amazing singers I've ever heard. I have NEVER seem a more determined person than him. And everything he went through wasn't only for him, but his beautiful son Talon. Jeff wanted to pursue his career successfully then any other contestant by far, which earned him the 1st place win in my book.
I gave up watching these shows because of all the great singers they didn't move up & chose. I was flipping through the channels last year, heard Jeff talking & had to stop. He started singing Hallelujah & the tears just slid down my face. I've been in music a long time. It takes a lot to get my attention & even more to keep it! Jeff has done that & more! Watching him never giving up, growing as a singer, letting down that wall & his dedication to his family has kept me going through this rough time in my life. Jeff has no idea what an inspiration he has been & how much sharing his gift has helped me. That's what a true artist is! Jeff Gutt is a true, gifted artist!
I don't think people realize Harry went from working at a bakery to being in the biggest boyband of all time. 1D rules. Don't listen to the haters.
Just #3? I don't know who are #2, Rhydian and #1, Fatin Shidqia, but 1D are a real wonder! Their songs are so beautiful and deep, so romantic and so cool! They can sing cool songs, like Nobody Compares, deep songs like They don't know about Us or romantic songs like Little things and What makes you beautiful! They just wrote a page of history! Now, in 2013, our parents tell us about those fab bands of the past, like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones or The Who. But we'll tell our children about One Direction and Little Mix and others!
Me = Directioner for EVER <3 Thumbs up if You = Directioner 4 EVER!
One Direction have come the furthest out of all the x-factor contestants. When they were on the show they always delivered an amazing performance, and never let anyone down. They definitely should have won in my opinion. They have a massive fan base and some amazing songs. They are so lovely to their fans and everyone, even the haters. I love them with all my heart and always will. Vote 1D!
They should be first I mean who else didn't win the X-factor and got so famous from Directioners, their tours sell out in minutes, platinum album, awards, number one singles. I mean no British group has gotten this much success since the Beatles. I mean for these reasons they should be number one and little mix number two
Leona has the perfect voice, so soft and emotional. She is by far the best. She is better than any other X FACTOR contestant and definitely better than ONE DIRECTION. At least she doesn't only have good looks, but also good voice and personality!
I don't know why Leona is not number 1. She has a great voice and she was the first woman to win the X Factor. Most deserved winner ever.
No one else come close to her in terms of singing prowess and execution. The ability of a person to communicate with the audience and giving meaningful rhythm to the songs I think Leona has possessed.
Leona Lewis is the BEST contestant, you can't even compare her to any of the other female contestants. Little Mix or Leona Lewis... I mean really? Little Mix are LITTLE compared to Leona!
Of course Little Mix are the best, That's why Tulisa told everyone that it would be YOUR FAULT if they didn't vote for them. And even David Walliams & Simon Cowell kept telling everyone to make sure they won.
It doesn't even matter that they were so close to the bottom of the votes & no one liked them at the start cause they won, or that the show covered for them forgetting the words, because they are the best. They didn't even need as much promotion to become famous in the US as One Direction because Little Mix are better. To prove it One Direction are always telling their fans to buy Little Mix's music.
Little Mix isn't your typical girl group. They don't suck like other people in the industry. They actually have talent and will be as big as the Spice Girls one day. I hate overrated artist like 5H and 1D who get all the attention. Little Mix can harmonize and dance. They all have different voices that work together. Jesy's voice is really unique and she can go super low with her voice. Leigh-Anne has a lot of soul and is perfect for the RnB songs they do. Perrie's voice is out of this world. She's like a mini Christina Aguilera. Jade voice is has a little of everything. She can sing Perrie's high parts if she gets sick or something but adds her own flare to it. She can go low as well and adds soul but she's unique in her own way. They deserve more fame then ever.
Little Mix may not be as famous as One Direction, but they are pretty damn close. Their songs have meaning, they put effort into their performances and music. They don't use auto tune, and sound just as good in the studio as they do live. Maybe even better! Jesy has such a soulful voice, and can go really low, can beatbox, and once she did a great high note. Leigh-Anne has a very graceful voice, she can rap, can go low and high, and has a great sound for their R&B songs. Perrie has an amazing vocal range, her high notes leave me with chills, she has a low soulful voice, basically a younger Christina Aguilera. Jade has an amazing voice all around. She can do so much with it, she can do the low notes, high notes (helps Perrie out, since Perrie had her tonsils removed, and can't hit them the way she used to). In each song, you can clearly tell who is singing. Unlike a few other groups. Not going to point them out on their own, but I feel that way about One Direction. I can hardly ever ...more
Unlike a lot of people that were in X Factor and then became famous, Little Mix are actually talented. They excel when it comes to harmonizing. Each of them have unique and amazing voices. The girls know when to use their strengths. They all can do great high notes. Their songs are awesome. Their songs are mostly about women empowerment like Wings, Power, Stand Down, and salute. And there are songs about getting over an ex like Shout out to my ex and No More Sad Songs. And there are fun songs like How Ya Doing’, Move, Black Magic, and Private Show. And they teach girls (but people in general) that it’s okay to be proud of your body. And they stand up for the LGBT community. And so far, they are the only group and girl group to actually win British X Factor.
One Direction was another man's creation. Cher Lloyd there is no imitation. You don't have to win a contest to be the overall winner and that's where Cher Lloyd is the champion. We ain't talking about one country we're yelling it out world wide. Cher Lloyd better known worldwide compared to any other contestant from the X-factor.
She's AMAZING! She can rap, and has a very unique singing voice. I like how all of her songs aren't focussed on love (ex: Oath is about friendship etc. ) and her songs are all ver catchy, but not repetitive or boring like every other pop song out there. I'm surprised she's not more popular than she is now!
Cher Lloyd is AMAZING! She can sing, she can rap, she had the best songs and voice that I have ever heard, and she's pretty. I mean, 1D is just a boy band, there are thousands of those. But Cher, she's her own person, and she's SO AMAZING!
Extremely talented! Beyond any other contestant ever on xfactor. She does not have to work at it. It just comes natural for her. Some day soon she will be the most popular, well known, world wide, loved female pop rocker! 'You've got it all Cher'
How the heck is she down here? She has an amazing voice at 13! She is better than a lot of adult singers who are already signed. She has great stage presence, is very comfortable on stage, and is humble. She isn't conceited like some of the contestants I have seen, and she isn't annoying. She is so sweet. Her voice is big and powerful. Think of how amazing she'll be when she's 20 years of age!
As usual another worthless X factor list. Carly should be at the top of the list but since there are really no rules ( Like X Factor) I am not going to waste my time voting over and over again on this one.
How is she not first? She's an amazing vocalist, with a HUGE voice that fills up the whole theatre. I think she definitely should have won.
I think she amazing! After watching both seasons of X-Factor and American Idol, she is by far the most talented.
Olly murs is the most successful out there. He seems such a nice guy and performed at many concerts which loads of people love going too. He's had the most songs which at least all of them have made it in the top 40. Unlike one direction and jls which are loved by kids and teens but Olly is loved by so many different age ranges like as well as kid there's adults and younger adults around his age who love him. Me and my family are always singing his wonderful songs.
How is Olly Murs 8!? And Rhydian is 1st! This is not right. Olly Murs is one of the most successful X Factor contestants of all time! Most of the people above him have not done much since the X Factor and Olly has done so much! How can you not love the cheeky chappy with the amazing talent?!
Olly Murs is so awesome. He may not have won x factor but he is a top star in the music business. Anyway, listening to his performances he should have won.
Only murs is awesome. His songs r awesome. His voice is awesome. That is all I can really say. So just vote
No option for Honey G so I went with my second favourite James Arthur. He has an amazing voice, a number one single (Impossible), a number one album (Back From The Edge), a collaboration with SHOTTY HORROH (on his song Sermon from the aforementioned number one album Back From The Edge), the honour of working with Simon Cowell, the joys and fame of winning The X Factor UK (he won the ninth series for those who do not know that or do not know of him), a number two single (Say You Won't Let Go) and a number two album (James Arthur). He's amazing, an all round, inspirational, conpletely honest singer/songwriter/rapper.
My favourite of them all. He connects emotionally in a way non of the others do. Not the purest voice but the one that reaches in and connects, the best communicator by a long way.. Watching his journey I think the judges knew very early on he was the winner, or at least the most talented. There were many spine chilling moments as he progressed. For me he is the single best singer and talent the show has ever produced. Not the most commercially successful but the best artist by far.
James Arthur, not the average XFactor contestant, he is a real blues artist. His interpretation of songs and the quality of his voice will ensure that he will remain a top artist. His talent is immense and his lyric writing is exceptional. His utube video, 'Your Nobody Til Somebody Loves You' has had over 7 million hits. There's your evidence. I rest my case.
His voice has so much emotion to it and makes me want to listen to his music all the time because it has a ring which makes it addictive and beautiful. He really deserved to win.
Dami is the most deserving winner of any talent show. No one before her ever had standing ovation at every performance, even the judges kept singing her praises and even once gave her a standing ovation on their desk! Dami has the ability to perform in any genre, be it classical, disco, rock, jazz or pop. She sang every song as well or better than the original artist. She sings from a loved filled hear and her beautiful voice reaches you from the inside. Her fans span all ages and respond to her warm and loving personality. Dami is a beautiful soul with an angelic voice and is destined for international stardom with her name among the greatest like Whitney Huston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, etc. Dami is a talented singer/songwriter and we are eagerly waiting for her next album.
Dami I'm is an amazing and super talented artist. From the second she sang "Hero" at her audition, we knew we were witnessing greatness. Her voice is magnificent, pure and flawless. From week to week she effortlessly performed songs from a variety of genres, to which many of them received standing ovations from all judges. She is humble, kind and sweet and is a positive role model for all generations. Being the first Asian-Australian to win X Factor Australia, she has brought together thousands of diverse supporters from all over the world who share one thing - our love, admiration and support for Dami. Never in my life have I been so moved and captivated by someone's voice, her journey is truly remarkable and I am so grateful to be a part of the ride. This is only the beginning for Dami. DAMI ARMY FOREVER!
Watch out for Dami. "She has the potential to be the greatest female artist to ever come out of Australia" (quoted from an Australian music legend). Her musicality, foundation and technical acumen in music and voice as evidenced by her achievements in tertiary studies in music as well as her possession of an addictive, smooth and soothing voice and a wholesome personality. I believe this "deadly combination" will separate her from other talent show contestants/winners and the current crop of singers in the industry. Australia has a small population and that's the reason she is currently in this position but when she goes global, she is going to be way, way up there. So watch out!
I came late to X Factor last year. Someone told me that I have to see this girl Dami I'm on the show. By chance, I watched Dami as she sang "Purple Rain". When she exploded into the second verse, I remember sitting up in amazement and I knew that she was the one I'd been waiting for all these years. Afterwards, back stage, the camera turned to Dami and she said, "I don't know what just happened out there". We all now know it was Dami's exceptional talent being discovered. Dami and her "awesome singing"!
Dami should believe what she thinks is the right way to go, she has the musical qualifications and the intellect. She will adapt and evolve as her career as a music artist grows. Her success makes us happy.
I came across your X-Factor journey by chance and I am so glad I did. I have lost count the number of times I have watched the videos of Dami. She is a truly rare and special woman and the world is lucky to have you.
So happy that she "took a chance" and "found ...more
They are so genuine and sweet. Their love for music and for one another shines through everything they sing and say. I have never gotten behind an xfactor group like this before, even if they were really good. Alex & Sierra are more than just really good. They are captivating in every way. LOVE THEM!
They have a type of chemistry I've never before seen on stage. I admit they aren't the best of singers, but in terms of entertainment and connection with the audience, they were one-of-a-kind. Plus, their rendition of Toxic as well as Say Something were amazing.
There so unique and one of a kind except the others who just copy S. One's song, these two bring there own style into the song and make it better like changing that toxic song that was far better than original version of it.
They are so beautiful and they are going to produce lovely music where everyone is going to buy and download!
Chris Rene is the most humble guy ever, he's a great father, communicates well & a lot with his Renelians, not to mention he cares deeply about us, and he is just an all around great person. He helped me through the darkest time in my life & he's the only reason I'm still here today & stronger than I've ever been. He is the real deal, words cannot explain how much love I have for this man. He makes me happy just by being himself, while other celebrities these days are not being themselves and it's clear that they're not. Chris also puts a great show on stage, he's really entertaining & when he's up there, he's just pouring his heart out & you can tell that he LOVES what he does.
He is so down to earth with a real story that others can relate with! He's a beautiful person with so much talent and an inspiration to many. He's also an incredible artist with a sexy voice. Did I mention how gorgeous he is too?! And he's humble and a family man. Chris has an incredible fan base of all ages from all over because he is so real that people REALLY love him. I could go on & on, but just check him out & you'll know yourself! You should vote for him. He deserves to be #1! That's why LA signed him a record deal regardless! Love life! Love Chris Rene!
Chris Rene on the American version of XFactor is the only contestant who has ever had the XFactor! He walked on that stage as a humble yet confident man. He was funny, polite, focused, attentive, courageous to perform his own song in the audition and other songs or blends of required genre song and his own songs throughout the competition. He should have won. But we haven't heard the last of him. Long after the other competitors have faded into the background, Chris Rene's Star will continue to shine and brighten our lives with his positive, heartfelt music.
Chris Rene definitely made Season 1 of X Factor USA! With his original unique style of music and charisma, he is refreshing and inspiring. He deserves to be right in the top ten as there's no one like him in the music scene. He's entertaining to watch as he can sing, rap and has swag dance moves on the stage that totally captivates. He's one artist that indubitably deserves far more recognition than he gets. More than anyone else on the X Factor, I'd love to see and hear more of him and his music in the future!
This si the first mixed group created by the judges, they have a girl that can rap, a guy that can dance and beatbox, and a girl that can Hit the high notes better than the others. They are a group full of power, energy and diversity.
They are fresh and brilliant and they sing to perfection and dance and have so much energy as if red bull would run througj their veins.
They are the very best group ever!
Third d3gree are perf.
Possibly a more mature fandom than the One Direction fandom. But JLS didn't need to visit the Yanks to become successful.
11TH? Ehh there easily in the top 3... This makes no sense...
The boys are great singers and have some great songs!
This the kinda band I read about in magazines glossy magazines these the only Guys I think lately in my dreams
She is one of the greatest female singers ever. Certainly the best X Factor singer apart from maybe Rhydian. She is as good if not better than Rhydian she can sing anything. In my opinion she is up there with Freddie Mercury, Elvis and Meat Loaf as one of the greatest singers of all time as well as Rhydian of course. She is gonna be big and I hope so. She's a new Freddie Mercury or Meat Loaf and could be the biggest X Factor singer of all time. Hearing her for the first time is like hearing Elvis for the first time. Matt Cardle was good too but nothing compared to her. And the sad thing is her and Rhydian never won
Rebecca has a very unique and sensitive voice capable of expressing every emotion effortlessly, she can do anything from blue to jazz to modern dance songs, and she does it with style and grace. She is one of the most genuine and likable personalities every to appear on x factor. He debut album is close to perfect, and I predict she will go down in history with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele and a handful of other artists that made a difference.
She's now in the top 10. Well she should be number 1. But she probably never will be unfortunately because Rhydian is in the lead with 87%. I'm not knocking Rhydian. But he's now the 2nd best x factor contestant. And she is the best
Rebecca Ferguson is probably one of the best X factor contestants ever. she had a beautiful voice, she was so pretty and she seemed like a really nice person. I hope she does well in her career.
Taylor's acoustic guitar playing and rich voice have the ability to take you away from the here and now and transport you to a new place. A place where all the cares and worries of the world fade away, and you just want to stay there for hours. Not many musicians can evoke that kind of feeling. You can hear in his voice a true emotional outpouring and the joy of just doing something he loves. Fortunately for us he's dang good at it too! He has a unique, pure and versatile voice that is at the same time raw and polished. If he just played his guitar it would be amazing, but then he begins singing and WOW! A fresh new voice in this world of same old same old bubblegum pop out there today. And he seems to be a genuinely nice guy and good looking to boot. The world is his oyster and we are all anxiously waiting for more!
As a child of the 70's I've never really gotten into the current music scene. I'm pretty much old school rock and roll. After seeing Taylor perform during his audition on X-Factor I became hooked on this talented young musician. There is so much power and passion in his music that you can't help but stop whatever you are doing and listen. He has become my constant companion on my 45 min drive to and from work. His music gets me pumped to face my 12 hour shift as an ICU nurse every morning, and chill out after a sometimes physically and emotionally exhausting day. His voice is mesmerizing to say the least. He could make it in any genre he chooses but I personally hope he sticks to the indie style with lots of acoustic guitar playing. I know there are bigger and better things in store for him and that he will continue to keep his fans clamoring for more!
Taylor is the most incredible Australian artist I've ever seen! Even though he didn't win X factor he is going to be way more famous then the winner. He has topped the charts receiving gold in sales. His fan base grows by the day. He is a true musician and performer he can captivate a whole room with just him and his guitar. He is a true talent that the whole world is just yet to discover. He's already borrowed the hearts of everyone in Australia. HE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST! Deserves to be at number 1 on this chart just like he is on all the others!
Taylor is my idol. He's been such an inspiration to my music. I've taken up guitar and I use my vocals more often after hearing Taylor. He's all about his fans and loves what he does, the fame still overwhelms him and he has an amazing voice. I've heard him live more times then I can count and every time it's been amazing. He's a true inspiration, he's caring, loving, fun, and crazy talented. He deserves the fame and everything he's been given. He plays music with all his heart and places himself as the artist. It's truly amazing. Taylor, you're a hero.
She is the best. Really amazing voice and performance!
Great voice should be 1st
The best by a million miles
Janet has such a unique voice and unlike so many other contestants, she has a real passion for music. She writes her own music, plays the guitar and doesn't agree with the likes of auto tuning and voice altering. She didn't enter the XFactor for the fame and money, she has no interest in VIP treatment or free things, she entered the show for her love of music and would never let fame get to her head. What's really special about Janet is she doesn't realize how talented she is and I'm not sure she ever will, but with such a beautiful voice and kind nature, there's no doubt she will succeed in the music business and have a long and happy career as a musician. She's got extremely loyal fans behind her and I for one will always be supporting her.
I have been on this planet for quite some time. I have lived through Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Neil Diamond, Fleetwood Mack, Duran Duran, The Quo. Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli and many, many more. I have listened to and loved many songs of all genre but have never been what you call a particular fan of anybody. I either liked what I heard or didn't. Then wee Janet walked on the X factor stage and I was captivated and captured into being a very big fan for the very first time. I think Janet is delightful. Nothing fake, nothing unwholesome an absolute delight. Quite unusual. I love her singing, her genuine love of music, her charm and her individuality. Her family must be so proud. I wish her every success in her musical career and hope to see more of her very soon.
Janet Devlin right from her first audition, you could tell that she had that unique, beautiful, soulful voice. As she went through her X Factor journey, we discovered that she also was very musical, played the guitar and has written her own songs. Janet also has her own ideas about music which is so refreshing in an age of manufactured artists. Her integrity shown through when others were trying to change her. But most of all, Janet Devlin's voice is incredible. So unique, Original and soulful. Somebody Like Janet comes once in a lifetime, we are seeing the beginning of a huge star in music who will be around for a very long time to come. I have never waited with such anticipation for a debut album. Janet comes close to perfection as you gonna get. Awesome.
Janet was by far the best contestant on the x factor. There are so many reasons for this. Janet consistently sang her heart out through each show even though she was getting abuse for being herself, then doing what people told her to do, then being herself again. She survived so much and stayed strong when most people would have buckled and given up. She constantly helped others in the house, and never had a bad thing to say about anyone, she was friends with all of the other contestants. Janet should win this because she inspired others to pursue their dreams, no matter how shy. Her voice is so natural and amazing, she doesn't like being face an doesn't agree with editing her voice with machines. She plays her own instruments, she is so grateful to her fans, she even went through security to meet a fan because she felt the need to thank him. She does everything for her devlinators, we love her loads.
I don't understand how Alexandra is so far down in this list. I can see why Rhydian is number one but Alexandra is clearly one of the most diverse, soulful, emotional and powerful singers to ever come out of X Factor. Added to the fact that she got rejected in 2005, but never gave up on her dreams and ended up winning the show three years later... She deserved it more than any other contestant, in my opinion.
I agree, Leona has made a huge impact in a few years and is an amazing singer, but Alexandra has the natural performer aspect of a singer that makes me think she will b around for a long time.
She'll be bigger than leona.
How is she only one place above the likes of Misha B laugh out loud Alexandra Burke has star quality and produced a few really good songs
Best X Factor finalist ever, hands down. He could sing circles around Leon, and his success since the show compared with Leon's proves that. X Factor just doesn't produce talent like this these days.
For talent and charisma, which is growing with every performance he gives, no one can touch Rhydian - he will be here long after the Xfactor and all concerned with it have been forgotten.
The undoubted winner of X factor 2007, Rhydian is the most talented, most entertaining act ever to come out of that show. He wiped the floor with Leon.
There has never been an individual on the T.V. show with as much talent as Rhydian. Love him or hate him, you just cannot deny he has an amazing voice and amazing talent.
Jai is amazing and the most inspirational person ever! He has worked so hard to get to where he is and deserves to be number 1! He my idol and he means everything to me! He is a god, his singing is the most amazing thing ever I could listen to it my whole life! I love him so much! Please come to Tasmania Jai! X
Jai is amazing okay. Only 14, very cute, he's funny and loves his fans! Voice of an angel, watch him on youtube and you'll fall in love.
Great voice at Only 14 years deserves to be 1st for the amazing effort he came 3rd on x factor Hea big he should of won Jai is so good at singing it gives me goosebump I was suprised when he got out but he didn't care he was happy for them I love him!
He's only 14 and he made it to the grand final. He has and amazing voice that gives me goosebumps! He's AMAZING!
I love Fifth Harmony! Five girls, different backgrounds, thrown together in a group and seriously taking over as one of this generation's best girl groups! They have so many different flavors and it all works together!
I love 5h a lot. My favourite is Camila; Lauren; Ally; Dinah and Normani.
Best style is Lauren. people need to stop hating on them way better than Little mix.
I have loved them since day 1 and I am never leaving them
Fifth Harmony = Magic
Sami can sing anything at zero notice to perfection! She is also a talented writer and has amazing ability to capture the audience right from the get-go. Humble and endearing in every interview.
She is so cool and she rocks it well your tone and style is unique
The woman made the Iceland advert #betterthankerry.
You're the best singer ever
Easily the best female contestant the X Factor has ever featured. Ruth is RAW POWER. Every single one of her performances are full of passion, emotion and intensity. She sings with her heart and her voice is absolutely explosive. It outclasses almost every other female contestant on any X Factor series, ever. Even now, I repeatedly watch her performances on YouTube, especially Always, Purple Rain and Love Ain't Here Anymore. This woman is beyond world class and she proved that yet again at Eurovision, where she was easily the best singer of the 26 performing.
Probably the best female contestant or even the best the X Factor has ever had! I think she should have been in the final two and not have left because of the prejudice that was against her. She was one of the few who really had the X Factor in the 7 seasons.
So beautiful, so stunning and such a truely incredible voice. Actually remember her rendition of purple rain and thinking, better than the original. Wasn't over-played and was sung with such pazazz- Best peformance on the X Factor Stage.
So emotional, so powerful on stage, so beautiful... Simon couldn't hide his attraction... I still watch her videos after 3 years (espec. Knocking on Heaven's Door, Love Ain't Here Anymore and Purple Rain)... I want her back!
