The British singer is climbing up the UK charts and recently won X Factor, the equivalent of American Idol for our English counterparts. What, you've never heard of her?

Don't worry, Lewis will soon be as well known as Kristin Cavallari is these parts.

How come? Because Simon Cowell is bringing the 21-year old along for Idol's sixth season. She'll make a guest appearance some time in the next couple months.

The cantakerous judge compares this beautiful Brit to American singers such as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Sadly, you know what that means, right, Leona?

Expect a lawsuit from Mariah any day now.
