Not many singers come out of The X Factor (or similar shows) with great records – mostly because they’re shoved through Simon Cowell’s song-making factory, or because they’re good singers but not good songwriters. The only brilliant album from X Factor (that I can think of) is Rebecca Ferguson’s ‘Heaven’. I haven’t heard Aiden Grimshaw’s album yet, but I rather loved ‘Curtain Call’ – enjoy!
