Unlike British imports such as Victoria Beckham - who we'd be happy to send back to a pub in London - Leona Lewis is coming to America.

And we couldn't be more excited!

The winner of Great Britain's American Idol-like show, The X-Factor, is seen here on the cover of the February issue of Harper's U.K.

Leona Lewis proves that you needn't have enormous boobs to hail from Britain and make a name for yourself. No offense, Lucy Pinder.

Her debut album was one of the top three selling albums of the year in England for 2007... and it will soon be coming out in the United States. Yes!

As the magazine says in this issue: "She'll break the States without breaking a sweat." We agree.

Here's a slight American Idol spoiler for this season:

Leona Lewis - winner of Great Britain's X Factor - will perform on the show.

Idols Giving Back

"We always like to invite established guests onto the show to give the contestants an idea of the level they need to reach. Leona, with her incredible voice, fits the bill perfectly," said a source.

Leona Lewis is already a hit in England. Will that success translate to the States?

Leona Lewis loves animals.

But not enough to get naked for their rights.

Very Pretty in Purple

The winner of Great Britain's American Idol-like show, The X Factor, recently said she supported the cause for which celebrities such as Alicia Silverstone have bared it all.

Nevertheless, this talented singer won't be donning her birthday suit in the name of it any time soon.

"I'm not that confident! I think it's a strong statement, and I really respect it because it's for a great cause," Lewis said. "I would love to do something for great causes like that, but I just don't think I could pose nude, because I'm not that brave."

Come on, Leona. Compared to Trishelle Cannatella nude, you're a super model.

Perez Hilton needs to get a life.

The law-breaking celebrity blogger spends every second of free time tracking down famous people, taking pictures with them and then probably tacking those shots to his refrigerator in an attempt to feel cool.

Perez Hilton Getting Punched

Some supposed stars, such as Tara Reid, don't mind. They need the exposure, too.

But you can see that Kristin Cavallari was none too pleased that Perez shoved his fake smile and annoying head into her personal space.

The latest celebrity to be stuck posing with Hilton is British singing sensation, Leona Lewis. Look for her on American Idol later this year - and perhaps a police station later this month, filing a complaint about Perez.

Leona Lewis.

If that's not a name destined for pop music fame, we don't know what is.

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.
