    ORIGINALITY!

    Now seriously, it's starting to annoy me. Why doesn't she ever sing her own songs. So far she's done mostly covers e.g

    Kelly Clarkson - A Moment Like This
    Avril Lavigne - I Will Be
    Snow Patrol - Run
    Bleeding Love - Jessy McCartney
    Written by Akon - Forgive Me

    What's next? At first I liked her but now she's lacking orginality.

    Come on, it's not like Kelly Clarkson writes her own songs either. Although, I'd be more than happy for her not to bring out any more songs.

    I think you'll find Jesse McCartney wrote this song. It's not a cover.
    She's only a new artist, so they're trying to establish a sound for her. Some of her songs are ok tbh. She hasn't had a song out in ages so hopefully it means she's in the studio and she'll be producing something more upbeat. :cool: :yes:

    Erm excuse me, Bleeding Love was written by Ryan Tedder and originally sung by Leona. Jesse McCartney later covered the song. But I agree with the rest of what you said, though you can't really blame it on her. It is more down to those greedy twits at SyCo and Sony BMG.

    She has a good voice, but what is really annoying is her lack of personality. She's borinnnnnng. Even when she's dancing in the rain on the streets singing "forgive me" I'm just like yawn :yawn:. Booorrrrrriiiiinnnng.

    Do you think Beyonce or Rihanna write their own songs?
    She's a pop singer not a singer songwriter and like most other pop singers, she sings songs that have been written by others.

    She's got an amazing voice but she's so dull and monotonous when she speaks rather than sings

    I think the OP got confused a little. While it is true that many artists do not write their own songs, they are original for that artist whereas Leona sings covers of previously released songs...excluding Bleeding Love.

    You know when Kelly Clarkson sung A Moment Like This it was a cover then too right? El oh el.

    Anyway I don't know what you expected exactly. She won the X Factor.

    He co-wrote it with Ryan apparently. Shocked, because the guy is a loser.

    Anyway, I like Leona. Obviously remember that she just won a talent show, it was her first album, and with people LIKE Ryan Tedder around, what record label would trust her to write her own songs? Exactly.

    Co-wrote it, my foot.

    Yeah, ok, she probably put the full stops in.

    Fair enough, she hasn't written any of her hits.

    But vocally, she is one of the best talents this country has produced in a while. And it was only her first album, surely the record company would want to rely on established song writers to launch her as such. There is still time for her to write some of her own stuff, if she is that way inclined.

    and even then they were in the wrong places so they had to get someone in to redo it
