Leona Lewis, the third-season champ on X Factor (the Simon Cowell-judged British version of American Idol), appears with Simon on Oprah today. Leona's THE great Brit hope right now, widely predicted to be the first winner of any U.K. television talent show to have a real shot at Stateside stardom.
And if there's any surefire way to become an overnight star in America, it's by getting on Oprah. Will Young never got to do that!
So Leona is currently riding high in the U.S. with "Bleeding Love," her catchy ballad co-written by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and former child star Jesse McCartney. (It was already the #1 U.K. single of 2007, by the way.)
Anyway, check out Leona's "Bleeding Love" video below and see if Leona's got the goods to follow in Kelly's Idolized footsteps:
