(Vocals, b. 1985)

Lewis was the third and most successful to date of Simon Cowell’s X-Factor reality TV show winners. She triumphed in 2006, her single ‘A Moment Like This’ an inevitable UK No. 1. After an 11-month recording break Lewis returned in 2007 with debut album Spirit, an international success that hit No. 1 in 10 countries, including the US and UK – she was the first British female solo artist to debut at the US top spot. She followed up with 2009’s Echo, which again topped the UK charts, reaching No. 13 in the Billboard 200.
