Hey Guys! That is one hell of a news and it has been confirmed directly by Leona herself! Leona will officially introduce to her fans new material of her very anticipated album Glassheart, at the next Radio1 Hackney Week-end, on saturday 23d! No need to say that we are over exited! Have a look…

Leona Lewis has confirmed that she will perform new material during her set at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend.

The singer revealed that she is currently undecided which of her songs from upcoming album Glassheart will premiere.

Speaking about preparations for the set, Lewis told BBC Newsbeat: “I’m quite militant! I like to be quite well prepared in advance. I’m not that well prepared that I know every single song, but I probably know 90% of what I’m going to be doing.

“I do have new material so I’m just deciding what new song I’m going to put into the set. I’m hoping it’s going to be awesome and everyone’s going to have a good time.”

She added: “I’m opening so I’ve got to put on a bloody good show, innit!”

Lewis will play on the main stage at the two-day event on Saturday (June 23).

Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend will take place at Hackney Marshes in London and feature headline sets from Jay-Z and Rihanna.

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!

June 2, 2012

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!
