Who is Leona Lewis?

Leona lewis came on our radar after winning X Factor in 2006 with her single A Moment Like This, a cover of Kelly Clarkson’s single. Fun fact, it actually peaked ar number on for four weeks straight. Leona Lewis also won a £1 million recording contract with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Music.

After winning X Factor, Leona worked with Simon for a while and Syco Records till 2014. But despite selling over 20 million records with the company, Leona decided to switch to Island Records.

He might be known as TV’s Mr Nasty, but Simon isn’t holding any grudges against talented Leona.

Speaking to The Sun, Simon said this and well he might be the angry type on the show but behind the camera, he is a softie and this just proves it

“I have a real soft spot for Leona for so many reasons. I’d say to her, and I genuinely mean this, that the door will always be left open. Any time she ever thought, ‘I want to come back to Syco’ I’d welcome her with open arms.”
