Leona Lewis Goes #1 in US
For the first time in 20 years, a Brit has taken the top spot in the American charts. And it’s from the UK version of American Idol, X factor. Leona Lewis won X factor, also hosted by Simon Cowell this past season.
After Cowell got Lewis a deal with Clive Davis, Cowell promoted his new find all over the US talk shows. Including Oprah.
After earning a standing ovation with her performance, Oprah told the Hackney born singer: “You’re the real-deal girl. Talk about a star is born.”
Congrats to Leona, hope her career does well after this.
