In Ellona’s words:

I just wanted to dedicate my cover of “Read All About It” by Emeli Sande to everyone who has been so supportive of me throughout my XFactor journey. THANK YOU! I had such an amazing experience. The best thing about it is that I gained new friends to cherish forever. My journey in achieveing my goal to be a recording artist will continue and because of YOU, yes you reading this, I know that one day will soon come and I have you to THANK because you are one of so many people all over America and around the world who will make my dreams come true 🙂

X Factor 2013: Exclusive Details on Ellona Santiago’s Diva Performance!

Many interesting quotes from this article:

The 17-year-old high school student may seem demure, but kitten’s got claws as she showed when taking on a diva song for the December 4 Live Show.

 

We already know she’s won over the judges.

 

For her duties over at X Factor, Marina says she looks to cultivate each contestant’s personal style and “guide them in developing their identifying stage presence.” One word sums up Ellona’s: fierce.

 

I think it’s an understatement, to say that Ellona’s stage presence is “fierce” While she’s normally somewhat shy and soft-spoken off the stage, she’s completely fearless once on it.  It’s like she’s returning to her element, where she is meant to be, and where the real Ellona shines forth as brightly as any star.

I was forwarded a link to an article from the TV section of Examiner.com entitled “Restless Road, Alex & Sierra, Ellona Santiago, Jeff Gutt: Sony Music deals ahead“, which outlined the possible future prospects of some of the performing acts/competitors on this season’s ‘X Factor USA’ competition, and I felt compelled to write about it.  Or gloat, perhaps.   I’ll quote from this article and add my own comments.

But first, let me say that from the very beginning I believed, and I still do believe, that Ellona Santiago was the very best performer on this season’s show, by far.  Let me reiterate that: By Far.  I’ve proven this from the first article on this blog, “Ellona Santiago Will Win The “X Factor” Competition. Here’s Why:“, to the most recent, “The ‘X Factor’ Final 6 Showdown – Two-Hour Special“, where I critiqued all of the performances during that show and concluded by saying:

My opinion is that Ellona Santiago distinguished herself wonderfully both times that she sang and out-shined all of the other acts.

And now I’m reading an article which states that several of this season’s ‘X Factor’ acts will receive Syco Music recording contracts.  Without further ado, let’s see what Examiner.com’s opinion of these performers is and see if it compares with my own thoughts. (more…)
