I've never watched 'The X Factor' before, out of, I have discovered, an entirely unfounded prejudice. I happened to pass through the room when Sam Bailey did her initial song in week 1 when Mum was watching and I stopped dead in my tracks and said 'That's your winner - I want a CD by her now!" I already loved the original version of this song, but Sam Bailey's stunning, pure voice invests the song with an ethereal, special quality. Quite simply, her voice sends shivers down my spine, and she perfectly explores every musical crevice of 'Skyscraper', transforming it into a dreamy classic. I can't wait for her debut album!
