But win it he did, and for that, I have to give him credit. The problem is he’s a one trick pony, like losing finalist Ray last year, he can only croon, regardless of the song he’s singing.
This video, of his duet with Kylie Minogue proves that beyond all doubt, as he turns the pop classic Better The Devil She Knows in to a bad cabaret show tune.
Oddly, I think this song had a lot to do with him winning the show in the end, because Kylie Minogue is hugely popular, enough to swing the votes round towards Leon.
I think it was the wrong decision, and that Rhydian should have won. Ray will undoubtedly be successful, but let’s be honest, he hasn’t got the talent of Leona Lewis.
