British People Like When Kylie Dresses Like A Ho, So They Voted For Leon Jackson On X Factor

Well, ain't that a kick in the lace onesie! Eighteen-year-old Leon Jackson, the underdog on X Factor, won the damn thing last night after Kylie came on stage and basically pole-danced on him as they duetted on a jazzy rendition of "Better The Devil You Know." Leon was judge Dannii Minogue's darkhorse choice to nab the crown, and, looking at her music sales in recent years, it's about time that broad scored! But I like this Leon. He's no Shayne Ward, but rather a tall, dark geek like myself. Which means he's probably got a monster Jackson down his shorts.

Meanwhile, everyone thought this Rhydian Roberts freak was gonna win. He told the press that he's a virgin, and now it looks like he'll probably stay that way. After all, nobody f***s a runner-up.

Today Leon's single , "When You Believe" -- a cover of that crappy Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey duet from The Prince Of Egypt -- was made available on the U.K. iTunes store. Why the hell'd they pick that flop? Simon Cowell really does have the worst taste in music.

Regardless, you can bet Dannii's velvet thong that "When You Believe" will be the Christmas #1 in the U.K. next week. And come to think of it, I'd rather have that than Alicia Keys, who we're stuck with over here.

Below is the clip of Leon and Kylie doing "Better The Devil You Know." Also, click here to watch losers Same Difference perform "Any Dream Will Do" from last night's finale with Jason Donovan.

Meanwhile, on this week's U.K. singles chart, last year's X Factor winner Leona Lewis finally is nudged from the top spot after seven weeks by Katie Melua's version of the Eva Cassidy rendition of "What A Wonderful World," the proceeds of which benefit the Red Cross.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "What A Wonderful World" - Eva Cassidy & Katie Melua *1 week*
2. "Bleeding Love" - Leona Lewis
3. "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" - Soulja Boy Tellem
4. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" - Mariah Carey
5. "Call The Shots" - Girls Aloud
6. "Apologize" - Timbaland feat. OneRepublic
7. "Rule The World" - Take That
8. "Fairytale Of New York" - The Pogues feat. Kirsty Maccoll
9. "Heartbroken" - T2 feat. Jodie Aysha
10. "What Hurts The Most" - Cascada

    That may indeed be a weird choice for a single, but I still can't bring myself to listen to Leona Lewis sing A Moment Like This; I mean, WTF?! It was already a hit! Leave well enough alone.

    ugh - i really wanted same difference to win, but after i heard the winners song (which i liked the original of, though now has changed lyrics) i'm glad they didn't. But leon? Words fail me!! And i didn't even know Katie Melua had a single out. So much christmas music in the charts!! YAY!

    Leon is tiny! (Probably in the trouser department, too.) He's barely taller than Kylie.

    I would have liked Rhydian to win. He has lots of charisma and I kinda like that freakish look. He's different.

    I'm so glad Leon won over that albino freak! I loved the duet with Kylie and at he wont frighten smalled children!

    However, the real winner of the night was the undisputable queen of pop, Dannii - with her contestants placing 1st and 2nd!


    Hopefully next year Dannii will be able to perform on the show and show the pretenders how it's done!

    A monster Jackson? You did NOT say that!

    Why was Leon performing with Joan Rivers?

    I did have something to say, but I've been laughing so hard for 10 minutes now at xo's Joan Rivers call that it has completely slipped my mind.

    "When You Believe" was SO bad. I guess only something Biblical would be able to bring Whitney and Mariah together. I remember when they performed that together at the Oscars(?). Whitney was smiling her ass off because she knew she looked so thin next to Mariah who wore that big white dress.

    By the way, my holiday video is now up on my blog! Go take a look. http://soandthus.blogs.com/

    Duane, well, Simon does enjoy recycling.

    Paul, we need a little Christmas!

    Mobius, yeah, after i typed that, I watched the clip again and realized that compared to Kylie, anyone will look tall. Oops!

    Mike, I agree! No one's giving Dannii much love over her great pick of Leon!

    XO, I said it.

    Adem, that's why we keep XO around... he makes the children cry.

    El Marv, off to check it out now!

    Speaking of Mariah, wouldn't it be just flan-tastic if she nabs the #1 spot next week with that old Christmas song of hers???
