John Lewis Christmas Advert 2011

The new voice behind the John Lewis Christmas TV advert is Amelia Warner. The song is a cover of The Smiths Please, Please, Please Let me Get What I Want and has had an extraordinary reaction online with 1 million views on YouTube. Amelia only started playing gigs last year but is no stranger to fame having appeared on TV and movies and even a brief marriage to Colin Farrell! Compare prices for her debut album Renditions on

Last year Ellie Goulding sang the Christmas Advert for John Lewis with a rendition on Elton John's Your Song. That song was also a huge success and it certainly did no harm for her career! Check the cheapest price for Ellie Goulding - Bright Lights

Speaking of Christmas TV adverts, Marks and Spencer has been running the X-Factor advert which has now finished! Hurrah I hear you say! It wasn't a particularly strong year for singers especially as the best singer Micha B didn't make it to the final!

All in all, Little Mix deserved it. Pre-order Little Mix's as yet untitled album which is to be provisonally launched on 3rd September 2012!!

Little Mix Crowned X Factor Winners 2011!

So the X factor has finished and Little Mix were crowned winners beating Marcus Collins and Amelia Lily into first place. It’s been a long time since Girls Aloud were the Girl Band queens and no-one has come close to being as good (sorry The Saturdays that means you!). Hopefully Little Mix will be as good if not better!
Compare prices on Little Mix's debut single here and if you are feeling really keen, you can pre-order Little Mix's as yet untitled album which is to be provisionally launched on 3rd September 2012!!

Last year’s X Factor winner Matt Cardle has been doing very well in the charts since his debut album was released in October. Compare the best prices on for Matt Cardle - Letters

Another former X Factor winner Leona Lewis, has seen her rocket onto the international stage. Her debut album Spirit was released in November 2007 and became the fastest-selling debut album. This helped her gain a £5 million pound recording contract in the US with J Records. If you haven't got her debut album, it’s very cheap - see prices on for Leona Lewis - Spirit.
Her new album Glassheart is due for release in March 2012 - compare pre-order prices now on for Leona Lewis Glassheart.

I'm sure the X Factor will be back next year but who will the judges be? Will Louis again be there? He is crazy and enthusiastic but is always ridiculously biased towards his own act. The other judges annoyed me in the end; Gary loved his boring acts and lied every time one of his own sang badly. Kelly Rowland was at first very funny but her lines like 'You got it going on' and 'You put it down girl' wore very thin towards the end. Tulisa Contostavlos was better, not sure why she was there in the first place, but she was less wet than Cheryl Cole used to be!

We have our Saturday and Sundays nights free again...but what shall we watch?!
