People really need to relax their expectations for Alex, she is not going to do a Leona because she not in the same class.
I agree with this to be honest, I think if Leona had have been there she'd have won again against these lot.
Her only competition would have been Alex, where as Alex didn't really have any competition.
I agree. Alex is good. The best of the 3. But she is no Leona. She just doesn't have the range. Though she was bloody good last night.
I just wish they hadn't chosen such a beautiful song for the radio to overplay.
That raw emotion that Jeff Buckley put into it will be diluted.
She's better than Leona. Leona is good, but pretty much a carbon copy vocally of Mariah Carey (when she was good), even to the annoying habit of not pronouncing the ending consonants of words. Alexandra's got a richer tone to her voice.
Your forgetting, when Leona was on X factor she knocked it out the park virtually every single week and she didn't just sing the songs, she hit with originality, like when she sung Summertime, probably the single best perfromance on any of these shows worldwide, that performance reverberated around the internet and got lots of people talking about her in the US.
I've not seen that kind of creative interpretation in Alex at all, its the reason why "Run" is at #1 at the moment, its the reason Bleeding Love was a hit, it was a reject song until Leona got her chops round it.
