She's had plenty of success this time around still. Her third album was more artistic and experimental, which I think Katy really wanted to do. I suspect her next album will head back in the...

For me, Jessie J lost something after the release of Domino. It's like she then became too focused on cracking the US and made songs with that as her main goal, where as her first album was...

I can't see Glow being #1 or #2. I think it might hit the top 5 based on the success of Ghost, but it's very weak I think. I prefer Missed to Glow.

A song like Ghost is perfect for Leona, it appeals to younger and older generations. However what I find with Ryan Tedder is, he produces a hit song for somebody then his next songs are all...

I think people are taking it too serious. She hasn't sold out, why would she need to? Her previous albums have been HUGE, she's sold out arenas and stadiums worldwide. It's not like 'Red' was her...

I love it personally! I mean, deep down I'll always love her songs that are more in the vein of Last Kiss, Mine etc but I think Taylor needed to do this for herself and personally, so long as she...

I think the public have moved on though. Big singing diva's in long dresses singing ballads just isn't a "cool" or current thing anymore. Leona is the only real UK artist that has that diva-ish edge...

Her debut album was pretty good I think and that kind of music suited her voice, soulful pop. But she made the mistake of going full on sexy dance pop for her second album but to do that kind of...

I agree with others saying an early release next year would be better. If you're a big established name then releasing around winter time is good because of holiday sales etc but Leona isn't and...

I would love to hear more of Leona's head voice on the next album. She seems to have snubbed it a bit on Glassheart but it's one of the best things about her voice, I don't think any of the singers...

Listened to it twice and still hasn't grown on me. Ghost hit me instantly and I loved it but Glow seems like it should just be an album track.

I'd love for Leona to have one song on the next album that's completely written by herself. Her songs pre X Factor were pretty good and she must be even better now having worked with all those...

I wouldn't say Could You Be Loved was awful, it was just ok from that video but I don't think Leona's voice suits reggae as much as she thinks. I've never really been keen on Man Down either, I think...

I think she did two things wrong:

1. She had a hit in the US and decided to focus all her attention on there. A lot of people who invested time and money voting for her on The X Factor and buying...

The second half of the set list is pretty much all covers except I To You and Bleeding Love haha.

I like the set list, it's nice that she's added Favourite Scar and at least she's trying new covers...

I've always hated the lovebird performances. That song really needs great and energetic vocals live to sound good but the way Leona sang them was so lifeless and lazy sounding (I know she was ill...

It's a great song but I think there were better potential single choices. Let Me Down, You Love Me and You Can't Win should have been singles!

And after hearing Ghost I'm anticipating Ella Henderson's album.

And with Leona Lewis on a new (better) label now, I can't wait to see how...

No. Adele wrote the song with Ryan Tedder and she initially said we should give this to Leona, but then in the end decided to keep it herself. At least that's what I think happened.

Sia's is one of the worst but I actually think it's intentional. I think she does it as it's sort of become her trademark along with the way her voice cracks on some records. There's moments on the...

Leona won't use any of her old demo's that have leaked I don't think. It wouldn't look very good on her Island move if she had songs on her new album that were recorded when she was still under...
