Leona Lewis now has something in common with Melanie Amaro: each was named the first-ever female winner of a version of The X Factor; Lewis in Great Britain and Amaro, of course, in the United States.

So it was only appropriate that Leona was present during last night's first season finale of this Fox competition, singing a beautiful version of her hit single, "Run." Watch and listen now:

Lewis wasn't the only superstar to take the stage prior to Amaro being crowned champion. Justin Bieber actually performed a pair of holiday tracks, teaming with one legendary artist and another young, up-and-comer.

As always, he put on a great show.

Leona Lewis has some serious bad luck.

Last year alone, she was headbutted by a horse and sucker punched by a fan. Then yesterday, she revealed that she recently fell down an elevator shaft. Really.

The latest exercise in horrendously odd happenstance took place in Sheffield, England, last week, while Lewis was performing onstage. That can't have felt good.

Luckily, the Simon Cowell protege emerged unharmed in the incident, which occurred when the elevator she was in got stuck and she fell down the shaft.

Happens to the best of us, right?

Leona Lewis is a magnet for danger.

"We have been having problems with the lift," she explained. "It had been going fine in rehearsals and then I had a bit of an accident and fell down the lift shaft."

"It was quite scary.

"I was lucky not to get injured. Fortunately it happened during a blackout on set and didn't affect the show or the audience. I got a shock and had to be rescued."

"I had to just get back up and carry on," she said. And, presumably, be wary of any falling pianos ... Wile E. Coyote's security team had better step things up.

As American Music Awards fashion goes, it's hard to top Carrie Underwood. Just look at her. Such beauty and grace. Fashion competitors need not even try.

Unless, possibly, you're Leona Lewis.

The British songbird not only looks healthy after her getting punched by Peter Kowalczyk, she looked positively vampish last night in that black number.

It's a case of black vs. off-white... fashions. And gorgeous ladies who make it hard to choose. But you must. Right now. Who looked better? Vote below!

Whose AMA style was best?

Peter Kowalczyk was jealous of the fact that Leona Lewis won the British TV talent show X Factor while he was turned down, according to The Sun (UK).

Naturally, he acted on that jealousy by waiting five hours to meet Leona Lewis yesterday at her book signing event, then punched her in the face.

A shocked Leona screamed and cried, "Oh my God" as the tall, buck-toothed nut job attacked, catching her on the temple with a fierce right hook.

She clutched her head and burst into tears as she was whisked away from the event (to promote her autobiography Dreams) and escorted to a hospital.

Five security guards jumped Peter Kowalczyk and pinned him to the ground. He was charged with assault before being taken to a psychiatric hospital.

Leona's furious boyfriend, Lou Al-Chamaa, who was with her at the signing, tried to confront the warped fan but was held back by the authorities.

Leona Lewis recoils in horror after having her clock cleaned.

The 2006 X Factor winner, now a global star, was checked for a concussion at London's Harley Street Hospital, but appears to have escaped with bruising.

Kowalczyk had bought a copy of Dreams and seemed to be waiting patiently for Leona Lewis to sign it at Waterstones in Piccadilly like every other fan.

But as those around him in line chatted to each other, he stayed silent and aloof. He said nothing as he reached the front and unleashed his punch.

A spokesman for Leona, whose next single is called HAPPY, said last night:

"It was totally unprovoked. Leona had been patiently signing people's books for a while - this man had been waiting for five hours. Why anyone would hit her I don't know. Leona is shaken and apologises to the fans she was unable to meet."

Waterstones said in a statement: "We would like to thank Leona for her professionalism and we are extremely sad that this event was ruined for her, and her fans, many of whom queued from the early hours of the morning to meet her."

If Jessica Simpson is to be believed, Leona Lewis is not a real woman.

Following the donning of a t-shirt that claimed "Real Women Eat Meat," Simpson must now face questions as to how one would describe Lewis, who has been named Sexiest Vegetarian of 2008 by PETA. (Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis shared the honor.)

The British singer beat out better known vegetarians such as Kristen Bell, Milo Ventimiglia, Abbie Cornish and Hayden Panettiere for the award.

Leona Lewis is one sexy vegetarian. But is she really the sexiest vegetarian alive?

"I am totally against animal cruelty," Lewis said, who also knocked off perpetual The Hollywood Gossip favorite and Simpson rival Carrie Underwood in the poll. "I am vegetarian so I don't have clothes, shoes, or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products… I'm on a mission."

Leona Lewis has a hit song called "Bleeding Love."

Still, that doesn't mean she wants animals to bleed and die in the name of breakfast, lunch or dinner. The British singer "has always adored animals since she was a little girl and has been a vegetarian since the age of 12," a source said.

We love Leona Lewis. And she loves animals. No wonder her and Simon Cowell are friends. Zing!

As a result, Lewis is set to launch a vegan clothing line.

"The reason she doesn't wear diamonds is because she doesn't know how they have been sourced. It was for this reason that she is determined to set up her own ethical fashion range and sell the goods at high street prices," the source told UK's Hello Magazine.

Does anyone out there actually know what a Vegan clothing line entails? Would one eat it while munching on vegan pancakes?

On American Idol Wednesday night, viewers were treated to a performance by Leona Lewis. The British singer is currently the top-selling new artist in the world.

And it was apparent that David Cook and David Archuleta - sitting safely on the couch after being told they were safe - were big fans. The pair of favorites took advantage of their view, relaxing and rocking to the song.

Randy Jackson bobbed his head, during the song "Bleeding Love," while Paula Abdul danced and Simon Cowell, the man who discovered this new talent, just smiled like a proud father.

Check out Lewis' performance NOW. What do you think of her?
