Her rendition of a Jayz track and then the 'Michael Jackson track Black or White' on the night of X Factor Show 7 earned her rapturous applause from the audience and judges alike and more than anything else displayed the depth of her talent and hard work she must have put in to deliver such a polished performance and it was no suprise to most that she deservedly won the competition.
