Thankfully, shows like the X Factor and The Voice have led me to discover some of my favourite new artists of 2012!
16 year-old Ella Henderson, from this year’s X Factor UK, didn’t make it to the finals. But she surely did gain a lot of accolades and fans for her unique style. Moreover, Ella recently signed a coveted recording deal with Sony Music.
With a “rags to riches” story, James Arthur is the incredibly talented singer and winner of the 2012 X Factor UK.
Another young unique starlet, 17 year-old Melanie Martinez did not make it to the finals of The Voice. However, word around the corner is that she might get signed by Adam Levine, who was her mentor in the show.
Carly Rose Sonenclar
13 year-old Carly became the runner-up of this year’s X Factor USA. With a powerful and soulful voice at a very young age, Carly is clearly a prodigy with a bright future.
