That’s the best way for me to create: without a million people telling me which direction to go. My goal was to create raw, authentic music — anything that comes after that is just a bonus.”

Saying Hi to Stevie
“I got to meet Stevie Nicks [after leaving Syco], and she gave me the pep talk of my life. She hugged me and started singing my song ‘Bleeding Love.’ She said that the world needed to hear my music.”

“It’s disappointment after disappointment.”
New X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw was left in despair today after the Boys category fell apart during the Six Chair Challenge.

X Factor 2015: How Simon Cowell’s six chair challenge didn’t go to plan
On the face of it, the premise of X Factor’s six chair challenge sounds shockingly simple.

Tonight Wembley Arena was packed as Simon Cowell’s Overs were in the spotlight with just one song – and one seat – between them and judges houses live.
