Personalities | Will Young | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1979)

Will Young is perhaps most famously remembered as the winner of UK TV talent show Pop Idol in 2002 over favourite Gareth Gates. Since then he has achieved the rare privilege of sustaining a chart career. After secrecy surrounding his homosexuality during the competition, the singer/actor went on to chart highly several times and sustain his career. Very much a pure pop artist, Young manages to overcome novelty via a crack team of songwriters.
