Diana Vickers debut solo single, “Once” is at the top of the UK singles chart. It is a massive success for her, and hopefully she will repeat the feat with her debut album, Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, which will finally be released next week.
Here is Diana doing an awesome rendition of one of my favorite songs, Michael Jackson‘s “Man In The Mirror”. This clip is from the 2nd Live show of the series, Michael Jackson week on X-Factor 2008. By this point of the series I was already a huge fan (she practically won me over with her audition, singing Damien Rice), but this really cemented it. I really love the soft tones of her voice, and how she adds her own colour to it without changing the song. The song is very simple, with a strong message, and Diana is able to capture that.
