Yes, Simon was very anxious to plug her to American audiences. After Oprah, I listened to several of her youtube performances on x-factor. I thought she was absolutely amazing and will be the next Mariah Carey, Whitney and will possibly give Celine Dion a run for her money. I was very impressed: she can wail, she can be heartfelt, and she can do the Mariah Carey vocal "calisthetics" in her upper register and still reach way down.
I don't know if she's his new girlfriend or not, but Simon and Clive Davis have signed her. I think she'll be a goldmine. Her name is Leona Lewis. If you want to hear an amazing voice, do a search on youtube and listen to her rendition of "Over the Rainbow". I will probably buy her CD when it comes out in the U.S. in April.
