Maybe because him being so busy :rusty2:
And he has had some success in Sweden too!
Yeah, he sung at Kronprincessdagen or whatever it's called.
Ray probably thought he was lucky to get to the final. I guess he never expected to make it that far. He knew way in advance that the single they would have to record was the one more suitable for Leona.
Something tell me that he wants to do his own stuff anyway, i.e. more swing-based music. Will Young said he was never that happy having to record Evergreen.
Absolutely... If anyone gave a shit about making his second album a success, getting him on the X Factor Final was the way to start. Ooooops.
Anyway, I was fucking delighted at the result. I was expecting a Ray win until he sang A Moment Like This, when even his most ardent of fans would have been :|.
Leona was obviously GREAT and she wore a NICE DRESS. I prefer Kelly Clarkson doing it THOUGH.
Well folks, that's the end of my EXCLUSIVE HINTS'n'TIPS FROM THE TV INDUSTRY. Until Soapstar Superstar, that is.
Winning is only important if they make it out to be. It was better than Leona won if it is simply a matter of who records that song because it was more suited for her.
Will Young beating Gareth Gates surprised them all because they had all expected Gareth to win and really Evergreen was meant for him to sing.
After Will won it anyway they did their best to give Gareth a decent go at a career, and at least at first their careers went about equally. Only on the 2nd album did Will prove to have more endurance.
Now in my opinion, in order to make anything of their careers, they need to record new material, not covers, and as I don't think either of them can write their own songs, they need to get good songwriting teams behind them. I think Leona is more likely to find that than Ray but even in her case, I'm not sure that her style isn't too dated to be a major success.
It was blates all aimed at Leona winning.
I loved all the "bare gangstar's" supporting Leona, I bet crime was non existant from wherever she comes from tonight.
I was worried that those Leona supporters with Mylene tonight were going to stop middle england voting for her
I think the really unfortunate thing was the use of AMLT for a Sandals holidays advert a little while ago. It's unforgiveable to use it after using it for that.
First studio snippet
I am really bored of this song somehow
It's a great ballad, no doubt but not even her voice can make it more fresh now.
Which turned out to be 100% ACCURATE
Maybe I'm being a bnit dense here, but will Leona be in the charts today then with the downloads? as it S getting a physical release next week?
The download was available from 0.00 today, so all will be counted for next week.
what about the ones that were available last night on that 7digtal or somesuch?
You weren't actually able to download it until midnight, just buy it.
Success depends on if Simon will support you after the initial interest phase and I doubt he's going to let Leona go.
OT: a bit but what HAS happened to Shayne Ward? I was watchign him singing on X Factor when SImon Cowell said he had the ability to be the biggest male solo artist in this country.....and now...he does NOTHING
I hope that we dont see an album from her for MONTHS, that was one of the things that elped Will Young establish himself... they have the opportunity to work with her and develop some fantastic songs, if we get an alb um within the next 3 months she may aswell give up there amd then...
was it 8 months between Will winning and releasing the album?
apparently working on the 2nd album with a very different style... somehow I suspect you will be the only one dismayed that hes giving up the insipis balladry
Oh shush, i like a lot more than just ballads.
I hope he DOES come back with something different and I hope he does really well. He HAS got a lovely voice.
Did his first album sell well?
Gary Barlow on Xtra Factor was basically slagging The X Factor to bits! Saying how the singles/albums they usually release are uninspiring, radio never plays them and the albums are rush released and full of covers and that he hopes to see them take their time with Leona and not ruin it for her.
How wonderful was the live-version of Patience
was it worth the £400k Take that were PAID?
£400k REALLY? It certainly was NOT worth that.
I just PRAY they got more than ********
Im sure they did because they sung an extra song. W.estlife were better tho
Oh I forgot that, ******** just got to duet didnt they... and they even got the runt, Take that got the star that is Leona
Yes but W,estlife dont NEED to perform with the "star" of the show or promote their songs on a reality TV program like some people. W.estlife are already popular enough without that
********'s duet with Delta on the show was MORE promotion than enough
I missed that
Mark sounds appalling at one point in that.
I was just shocked to see Nicky and the other one sing
Nicky and Kian do often sing if you see them live...they have decent voices.
Like Kian said, in any band other than ********, he would be a lead vocalist. It's just that they had 3 world class singers in Shane, Mark and Bryan
I dont like Kian at ALL actually.
Well like I've said before, in credit to him, in a group of wankers he manages to stand out as being the greatest wanker of all.
Nicky and Kian have perfect BACKGROUND-singer voices.
If you listen to unplugged versions, they deliver wonderful harmonies.
But you can't beat Shane in lead vocals, and Mark neither.
******** are almost a duet band now, with 2 background vocalists.
Now and then there have also been some STUDIO recordings with them singing the lead vocals, and they are all rather DECENT really!
