Check out Leona Lewis's first EVER X-Factor audition

17 November 2008


Was it just us that watched Leona Lewis's fabulous performance on this week's X-Factor and had to log straight on to YouTube to look up her first ever audition? Well, if not - you HAVE to see this. The singer might now be a global superstar with designers like Roberto Cavalli clamouring to dress her but just two years ago she was a receptionist who'd queued to capture Simon's heart in the X Factor auditions. And didn't she do just that. Check out his smile (creepy or not?) as she sings Somewhere Over the Rainbow here to claim her place on the show and spark ‘The Leona Effect'. Well, come on, isn't that one of the reason the girls are just so on-it this year? Because you know they've got the potential to be real stars...
