Hey Guys! Just a quick news…In a recent interview, one of the finalist of the X Factor (UK) 2011, Marcus Collins, have expressed his opinion about the possibility of Leona being a permanent judge on the show, and now we bring you the little part of the interview. This is what Marcus told to Entertainmentwise.com:

Marcus added: “I really don’t know [who should replace Kelly] It’s a hard one, as long as they were a performer and knew what they were talking about then that would be a great judge. Leona Lewis would be ideal as she’s been through the X Factor process before as she cab relate to the audtionees and she know exactly how they are feeling and what they are going through.

It’s so good to see that people including fellow artists support Leona on this, it seems everybody know that she’s able to do a good job at judging!

Earlier this week Leona Lewis returned to the X Factor, but this time she was behind the desk and not auditioning in front of it, joining resident judges Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh.

While Leona Lewis took the guest judge’s seat on X Factor she clearly proved to the doubters that she’s made it, but life wasn’t always so sweet for the star.

While speaking at BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s Academy today, a live question and answer session that mentors young people in Hackney, Leona revealed:

“I was bullied at school, so I used that to channel all my energy into singing and kept my head down.”

People being mean to the pretty star is nothing new, even during the X Factor auditions the public turned on her.

Gary Barlow told the Metro: “People think Leona’s a bit bland but she was great fun, even though she got booed.

“I had to tell her beforehand, `Don’t let the audience sway you `cos they’re a brutal crowd at the auditions’.”

While on home turf in Hackney today omg! witnessed the singer share her experiences in the music industry and also opened up about why we’ve not heard (or seen) much of her of late.

She said: “It’s hard writing an album, it takes a while, you can’t rush it out — so you’re away for a bit. My album will be out at the end of the summer.

“I’ve had to be strong and courageous in what I want. Simon Cowell knew I was an artist not just a singer who’d sing any song.

“And now I have full creative control from the promotion, photo shoots and the video — it’s taken a while to get but I’ve got it now.”

The singer dished out advice to aspiring musicians in East London sitting aside hit music producer, Labrinth as the duo shared their very real experiences.

Leona also opened up about cracking America and meeting her idols.

“Alicia Keys is the most exciting person I’ve met, hers was the first concert I ever went to and it was amazing. When I met Beyonce I couldn’t believe she knew who I was.

“I knew I’d made it in the US when I was in the car on my way to an interview and my song was on the radio and the driver was singing along to it but he didn’t know it was me.”

Despite being the one helping young people break into the music industry it was Leona who admitted she still gets nervous but over time it’s got better.

Aww, she’s no reason to be though, she’s amazing!

Leona Lewis is swapping her swooning ballads… for the urban sounds of drum ’n’ bass.

The squeaky clean former X Factor winner is planning an eclectic comeback that will see her try out many ‘different flavours’.

‘At the moment I’m just finishing up my album so I’m hoping it will be out in the summer,’ the star told me.

‘I’ve got a track that’s got a bit of drum’n’bass at the end. It’s quite different to what I’ve had out before.

‘I’ve got a track that’s very 90s. It’s just different influences that I’ve had through my life growing up,’ explained the 26-year-old singer.

Simon Cowell’s pro-tégée said she was trying to do things differently on her third album, Glassheart. Rather than collaborate with lots of technicians like she has in the past, this time there’s just one executive producer at the helm.

‘I’m really actually looking forward to people hearing it,’ she added.

A Hackney girl at heart, Leona said she was currently a nomad whilst recording. ‘I love to travel and at the moment my home is nowhere.

‘I’m always kind of here, there and everywhere,’ the Bleeding Love star said.

On her travels the staunch animal rights campaigner is happy to blast celebs who wear fur and fail to pull their weight in helping relieve the plight of suffering animals.

‘It can be disheartening because I’ll be asked to do campaigns a lot,’ said the horse-lover. ‘I’m so passionate that I’ll put everything into it.

‘You see other campaigns where celebrities jump on board but animal rights issues is something where people feel they can’t really tread.

‘It’s not even about being a vegetarian. It’s about having a bit of empathy for what these animals are going through. I do think celebrities could do more.
