It is our pleasure to introduce non-UK audiences to Leona Lewis, a contestant on the new season of Cowell's Brit show X Factor.
Leona's got the looks - and more importantly - the voice. She's got the "It" factor. With plenty to spare!
This is what Simon has to say about her:
"Across this show, across Idol, across all the other shows. Let's be honest: all the girl singers haven't been very good....until now! You [Leona] are absolutely the BEST contestant I have ever had across any of these shows. And that was an amazing performance."
Wow!! Big words from the man who tells it like it is!!
Even if she doesn't win X Factor, Leona Lewis will be a big star, and she definitely has what it takes to cross over in America as well.
Click here to see Leona's brazilliant performance of Summertime, which Simon was praising above. It blows Fantasia out of the water!!
Oh yeah, and you'll also see Cowell and fellow judge Sharon Osbourne make out. It's quite funny!
