Leon wins X Factor 2007

Posted in Beth, Music, TV by Beth Squires on December 15, 2007

Oh, people of Britain. What have you done?


Same Difference smile, sing you a High School Musical classic AND perfom with Jason Donovan, yet you vote them out of the final first. Never mind, a career in Brit remakes of HSM and childrens TV beckons…


Then, Rhydian isn’t good enough – the man who smiles and giggles like a toddler and performs to perfection. Perhaps it was the fact he performed with screechy voiced Katherine Jenkins that made you turn your back on him at the final hurdle?


But Leon? LEON?! He had an iffy mullet way back when auditioning. He’s basically a mesh of Gareth Gates and that Ray guy who sang swing songs and now judges slightly dubious TV shows like Baby Ballroom. Yet, it is he that you crown as winner of The X Factor 2007! I’m confused, shocked and unhappy. But hey, at least they brought on all the old rejects to do an absolute mess of a song in the middle.

Well, thank god for the HSM tribute song and Kylie and Jason performing on the same show. Joy of joys! I’m 5 years old again!


As a side note, has anyone else noticed how much Leon looks like Evil Chuck from Gossip Girl’s younger brother? Uncanny-ish, huh?

    Personally I can’t say any of the finalist were particularly inspiring.

    I Really Liked Same Difference And Leon.
    To be honest i really didnt like Rhydian Because He was to ful of himself and arrogant.
    Same difference would be better in a pantomine or sumwhere because they where entertaining.
