COWELL 'S LATEST SIGNING!

You may remember on Friday during The Word On Entertainment that Laura mentioned the fact that Simon Cowell signed a ten year old! Well it's true, here's the story AND the video that got his attention ;)


Simon Cowell has struck a deal with a 10 year-old singer he saw on Youtube.

Simon sought a live performance from Heather Russell and after watching her perform in person he reportedly offered her a deal after just three minutes of singing.

The young Canadian singer could be the next big thing since fellow Canadian Justin Beiber won over millions via his Youtube clips. Heather has been described as the next Mariah Carey and has also caught the ears of Rob Fusari, the boss of X Factor and the music producer responsible for launching Lady Gaga.


ADELE AT THE BRITS

This was THE performance at The Brit Awards from Adele myself and Laura were talking about on Friday. For those of you that missed it, here is Adele with her new single "Someone Like You" enjoy it.
