  1. i would just like to say, as soon as i saw leon walk into the audition room i backed him from that moment, mainly for his looks and the way he was so real…then he sang and i knew my credits on my phone would not last very long come sat nights, he deserved to win hands down, he’s fresh, young, good looking, great singer and seems like a perfect gentleman.
    all the people saying he shouldn’t of won it was down to the votes at the end of the day and leon won the majority of them, he won fair and square and deserved every second of it, i don’t regret voting for him time and time again.
    i was waiting in the shop to buy his first single and i will continue to be a supportive fan and can not wait to see him in the live concert, so well done leon..well done for your number one hit, and hers to many more to come.

  2. Very Nice Jenny Lally (1) that you like him cos of he’s looks. But he has not got a great nor professional voice. And he’s not a great singer. I am neither Rhydian’s or Leon’s fan but i can tell you that Rhydian was a much better singer and very professional though he will go far in his career as per he did not win. And even if you say Leon won fair and square, it was only due to the fact that about 2000 votes meant for Rhydian were unfortunatley not registered due to constantly engaged lines not only in wales but round the Uk as we tried from London. Leon has got Tonsolitis now cos its evident that he is overly starining his vocal chords that can only carry note with too much effort. Rhydian Sings effortlessly, operatic and also pop-like so its so evident that he has always been the best singer. Period.

  3. “Despite the controversy surrounding his win, Leon Jackson remained top of the charts for a second week with his single ‘When I Believe’. Although it was only released on Wednesday 19th December, Leon’s single was officially the fourth biggest selling track of the year.”

    Have read in the local papers that there is a national crisis re the waiting list for NHS hearing -aids ——

    It also reminds of the Kit Kat Advert – “You can’t sing, you look awful, you’ll go far…..”

    I suppose Leon’s success proves both are true!

    Groan

    Off to U tube and Rhydian again ———-

  6. To lunmsy just to let you now that tonsillitis is not caused by not being able to sing as this is in your voice box a different area of the throat, so research things before you make crappy comments!!!!!!

  7. Kristy may be interested to know that tonsillitis can cause someone to lose their voice or it can change the voice. Maybe it means Leon will now be able to stay in tune. I live in hope !!!

  8. Bless you P J for making that kirsty (6)aware of the effects of tonsilitis as she obviously din’t read were it was said that it is caused by overly straining your vocal chords which definitely affects your voice.
    It was not said anywhere that he got TONSILITIS BECAUSE HE CAN NOT SING. so Kirsty, read well before you also post ‘Crap’ comments too.
