She's 19 yrs old and has just burst onto the Brit music scene. The first vid is her performance six months ago on the Jools Holland Show before she'd released any material. The second is her single which got to no 2 here in february.

Inevitably comparisons have been made to Amy Winehouse, but this one has a "force 10 personality" and no self distruct button. She writes everthing herself.

I think it's a sad enditement of our audio/visual times that she receives a lot of flak about her weight. Remember the good old days when "ugly" people had hits too?

She certainly is one of the better Artists that is being played repeatedly on radio 1. and to be honest for a good reason. she certainly has talent and her songs are fantastic, its a nice break to hear something like that getting recognition over Rubbbish like Rhianna!

I think I still like Amy Winehouse better. Adele sings good too, though. I think Adele is influenced by Amy a little.

Strange, I wonder how I got that double post in there?
