    So all these have one main thing in common. Which is that they were pushed as the voice of their respective years on X Factor. Who's material do you like best as opposed to who do you think has the best voice? Rebecca's current album has really grown on me and surprisingly I'd say in terms of material she's ended up my fave. In terms of music released I'd go :

    1 Rebecca
    2 Alexandra
    3 Leona

    I have a soft spot for Leona even though she is probably the worst live act I've ever seen (excluding Louise).

    I've always disliked Rebecca's voice and I Hope was such a joke of a song. I hope I hope I hope I hope I hope I hope etc.

    Alexandra was good for the time but Leona has a better back catalogue

    It's a poll that has even more relevance now than it did then!

    I don’t know what prompted this poll but it will be a slow burning success I feel.

    Talk about exceeding expectations!

    This is the most exciting thing that's happened to Leona since 2011

    And that's very much including her wedding.

    leona. there will always be a place in my heart for the woman who made that glorious cover of run and also bleeding love.

    never been bothered about burke, was shortly interested in ferguson during the show (her voice and song selection with wicked game and show me love were great) but after that i didn't care for her direction and i don't remember liking anything by her since.

    Leona's Run is probably my favourite reality TV performance ever.

    Well, other than Rachel Hylton's With Every Heartbeat, anyway.

    Rebecca's first album had some really good songs that I remember hearing a lot even though none of them were big hits. She really seems to have gone to absolute shit since then though.

    THE BEAST clearly had the most star quality of the three, but again, shoddy post-debut album material really let her down.

    Poor Leona. At least she'll have some Christmas royalties coming her way soon I guess.

    Two of Leona's Christmas songs really are FAR too good. The thought of One More Sleep gets be excited for Christmas :D

    THE BEAST of course :disco:

    Bad Boys, Start Without You and the wonderful All Night Long (with Pitbull) are bangers.

    All Night Long is indeed properly good. Wasn't there some CONTROVERSY about it not being playlisted on Radio 1 or something?

    I voted for Rebecca?! :D

    Updated rank:

    1. Leona
    2. Alexandra
    3. Rebecca

    Alex really should be number 1, but her back cat is so shoddy post Start Without You

    Bad Boys was (is?) EVERYTHING. It must be by far the best post X Factor winners song.
