    why must she have lesbian in her title mario? you don't see hetero in other people's titles and if you did, people would scream racist. isn't there more to her than being a lesbian? did being a lesbian make her sing so well? or was it a combination of things?

  2. 2


  3. 3

    what does her being lesbian have to do with anything? i dont fucking care who she does…can she sing??? thats all people care about

  4. 4

    She didn't look Lesbian to me. Anyway, why don't you sponsor her world tour with oh……how about Adam Lambert?

  5. 5

    Good on her for winning and doing it for the gays girl! Although am not sure that rendition would have got you through the auditions in the UK or US… not hating, you seem cool as fuck, just being honest x

  6. 6

    Why identify her as a "lesbian"? You would never say "15 Year Old Straight Girl Wins X-Factor". Her being a lesbian doesn't make her any more or less special than anyone else. Her sexual orientation has nothing to do with her talent.

  7. 7

    She couldn't even make the top 20 of American Idol. But in a small country i guess you have what you have.

  8. 8

    Weather shes lesbian or not doesnt matter. She cant sing.

  9. 9

    Why is it o.k. to be sexually active at 15? She never would have won with that performance in the U.S. I don't think performing as a boy is any different than doing drag. I'm glad for her that she won, but not overly impressed. It looks like alot of smoke and mirrors to me.

  10. 10

    Of course it's relevant to say she's a lesbian - the point being that it's completely ground-breaking. Of course it's worth celebrating that we've reached the point (at least in some places) where it DOESN'T matter that she's a lesbian and it hasn't held her back from winning the competition - it wasn't that long ago that being gay was actually illegal in a lot of places. It still is illegal parts of the world. So it's a big thing to celebrate, because it shows that old-fashioned views of homosexuality are definitely on the way out.

  11. 11

    Great, unique vocals…Could care less if she's a lesbian or not. **rme**

  12. 12

    Bet if she wasn't a lesbian, you wouldn't be posting this AT ALL!

  13. 13

    Why the label. Why not a talented young 15 girl. You should go straight mario. You do a severe disservice to all Gays and Lesbians by implying it's a surprise when they achieve successes. That may be your issue, but certainly not the norm.

  14. 14

    And you needed to point out she was a dyke because…

  15. 15

    God Denmark must be a talentless country if this chick can win that contest. and also why the hell are YOU "proud", you dont know her do you??? pretty lame saying it just because shes homosexual

  16. 16

    "15 year old lesbian from Denmark", that doesn't sound like promoting equality to me. Practice what you preach and maybe people would start listening.

  17. 17

    Re: radiogaga – That she munches carpet IS NOT "groundbreaking." She's either got a talent or she doesn't; Mario's obsession with GAY actually renders whatever talent this girl does have as secondary at best. Her desire to be with women didn't win her the contest, and it's a shame that Perez is so desperate to push his gay agenda forward that he has to trumpet her sexuality over and above anything else. A person's sexuality is not all of who he or she is, and to present it the way Perez did is, in a word, PATHETIC. And people like you who buy into his labeling are no better than he is.

  18. 18

    I am offended that her sexuality has to be announced and I'm gay
    it should have no bearing on her singing ability

  19. 19

    She already performs like a superstar. But what does her being a lesbian have anything to do with her singing? I think it's totally unnecessary to post lesbian in the title… And I'm gay.

  20. 20

    of course as we all know, Lesbians are the master race and should be addressed by their full age and sexual orientation each time they're mentioned.

  21. 21

    A 15 year old singer whom just happens to be an out lesbian Wins X-Factor Denmark.

  22. 22

    Re: La Garse – Clearly I wasn't saying that the fact that she's a lesbian is groundbreaking - the fact that it's possible for a gay person to win a contest voted on by the general public is groundbreaking. I'm not commenting on how good or otherwise she was, or whether she deserved to win, just saying that it's a positive thing that there is so little homophobia in Denmark that she was ABLE to win.

  23. 23

    what the hell is wrong with you? what do you have to be proud of you sorry excuse for a human, did you sing the song? did you help her? and more importantly as many people have pointed out, why does it matter that she's gay?

    btw she wasn't even good

  24. 24

    Dude wtf she's 15. Some ppl don;t find out they are gay until way later and some who are gay when they are in school are no longer. She's so young she shouldn;t be called out like this and 'known' for her sexuality sad world we live in

  25. 25

    Forget the fact she's a lesbo I'm stuck on the fact that this is the best singer in a county with a population of roughly 5 and a half million people. She sounds awful.

  26. 26

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing when I read the title. It sounds like she is an animal at the zoo, "here is the lesbian girl". If the gay people want to be treated like everyday citizens like everyone else, stop with the lables please or don't get offended when someone who is not gay refers to you as a homoesexual or other title.

  27. 27

    how did she win? and yes justtfax i agree.

  28. 28

    Waaaw! I think she has an unique voice, I love her! (:

  29. 29

    Well, I'm from Denmark and I saw the finale. And she WASN'T the best singer, not even close. I must say though, that she is a great performer, way better than any of the other finalists. Maybe that's way people voted for her…

  30. 30

    She isn't the greatest singer of all time, she's actually far below the previous winnes of Danish X-Factor. But that is not the point - she has X-Factor. She is different and a personality, and that's why she won.

  31. 31

    Re: Pottan – Denmark is very talented! Our music is just very different from music from U.S.A and other countries.

  32. 32

    Meh, whatever. I'm off.. my white, heterosexual friends and I are leaving to check out the heterosexual men of various cultures downtown. Have a nice day.

  33. 33

    surely equality for gay people should invlove their sexuality not being pointed out everytime they do something.

  34. 34

    Yeah, she's a lesbian. So what? I agree with the majority of the other posters. Why do you have to announce that she's gay? I'm sure that you're so proud of her for winning. More like, you're proud that a gay person won, no matter the talent level. She's not a completely horrible singer, but definitely not the best. Stop pushing GAY, GAY, GAY down our throats. I am for gay rights and all, but your approach is one-sided. You could care less about anyone or anything else.

  35. 35

    Re: radiogaga – In Denmark theres nothing groundbreaking about being a lesbian. Its so freaking common.

  36. 36

    Re: GetBack – wtf, I don't know who you know who keeps on switching from gay to str8 or str8 to gay like switching underwear, I am gay, and never questioned myself, I am sure others are the same, what you describe are just simply people on denial of who they are or maybe they are bi-sexual.

  37. 37

    Re: BIGFOOT1 – It's Europe, they lack morals over there.

  38. 38

    I'm from Denmark, and I watched the x-factor shows on tv.. All that has been said about her by the judges and everyone else is that she's SOOOOO BRAVE for being out at her age, and confident about her sexuality. Couldnt agree more on that, but since when does that qualify her to win a singing competition?? The girl can't sing at all. I'm bisexual and also really confident about it, can I win next time then? Oh, and also, I CAN HIT A NOTE.

    In Denmark, everyone gets more attention and advantages for being gay. (eg. World Outgames '09 won "event of the year" over much bigger and better events), because everyone is so busy showing that they're cool with homosexuality. I'm so sick of it. We're all cool, now PLEASE can we be objective?

  39. 39

    She won? WOW I wonder how bad all the other contestants were. The only reason that stupid song poker face is any good is the up beat tempo which makes it a good dance song, to sing it slowly like it's a love song just sounds ridiculous. This chick is mediocre at best and won't have much success.

  40. 40

    Why is the fact that she's a lesbian relevant? Focus on her talent. You're really doing a disservice to the gay community.

  41. 41

    Well I only voted for her because she's a lesbian..! And I thought that it would do good with a rolemodel for the young lesbians in Denmark.. Because we don't have other young lesbian rolemodels now we have one!! And I'm thrilled!

    Too bad she a louzy singer, I can't stand listening to her voice…!

  42. 42

    When "titles" are mentioned, it's more hurtful to the cause. Think of how many people overlooked the article because they didn't want to read about a "lesbian" winning. We are all people, just that. We cannot become one until we let go of these stupid "titles" that keep separating us.

  43. 43

    What does the fact that she's a lesbian have to do with anything?

  44. 44

    (i'm from Denmark and - ) I LOVE HER! Voted for her 5 times, just to be sure - all though you could only vote 1 time :D SHE ROCKS !!!!!!!!

  45. 45

    Good for her and all…. but her voice does not appeal to me at all. I'd take P!nk any day of the week. This chick's voice isn't even melodic! She has no range….

  46. 46

    Re: pheodora – Sounds to me like you're jealous of her winning. I'm from Denmark and I've never seen any homosexual people getting any advantages nor more attention than straight people. Maybe she wasn't the best singer, but she was the best performer. I wish that Perez would've uploaded the song she did with Carpark North, cause the Lady Gaga thing wasn't working for her at all.

  47. 47

    Re: rickraton – WOW. you don't know much about adam's success then huh? only the LGBT community spports him? Uh, no.

  48. 48

    So what's really the news here; that a talented 15 year old won the contest or that she's a lesbian? You're really pathetic Mario

  49. 49

    No i dont like her voice. But she seems to be a funny girl.

  50. 50

    Lol, pokerface? Such an amazing song to impress people with vocally (sarcasm).

  51. 51

    as a gay person yourself, why do you label gay people? Would you say "Straight person wins X Factor"? You're an embarrassment to your community!

  52. 52

    She wouldn't stand a chance here in the good ol' U.S. of A. Probably a nice enough girl and all that but poor thing can't sing a lick.

  53. 53

    Draco Malfoy won the xfactor!!

  54. 54

    who cares if she is lesbian? mario loves labeling people. such a stupid hypocrit

  55. syd3 says – reply to this


    Love, love, love her presentation ….

  56. 56

    justtfax, very well said. I cringed when I read this title: 15 Year Old Lesbian Wins X-Factor Denmark. Why must she be defined by her sexuality? She is amazing, I agree. But why must her sexual orientation be the primary focus?

  57. 57

    was her talent being a lesbian?? because if thats why she won then a lot of people were ripped off.

    … soo good job for her on being lesbian?

  58. 58

    SHE IS ONLY FIFTEEN! Her sexuality shouldn't be up for discussion..by herself, the X Factor community, or Mario. Shame.

  59. 59

    You people are funny, you come on a site and just abuse perez your no better than he is. If you don't like what he has to say, go some where else. Well done for winning.

  60. 60

    Well done :)

  61. 61

    Why do you have to keep labeling people by their sexual orientation. It is people like you that keeps the bigotry going. Who cares what people are as long as they aren't pedophiles or into animals. Let people just be and stop pointing out things that have no bearing on the story. People would have figured out that she was a Lesbian if they watched the footage showing her kissing the girl. Maybe she isn't a Lesbian and she is bisexual. Did you ask her? Are you actually a reporter trying to write a story. The only thing that I care about is that she can't sing AT ALL! Did you happen to notice that?

  62. 62

    Im Danish, and it irritates me a bit when people say that Sarah sings bad, but wins anyways, because Denmark doesnt have better talent, because Denmark is a small country. That is wrong.

    We had some really good singers, who didnt even enter bootcamp. Denmark is a happy "family country" and xfactor is a family program, with two million views out of a population with 5 million people. Sarah won because of the "good story" I guess. btw, this perfomance with lady gaga is the worst, performance she has ever done.

  63. 63

    How about "15 year-old human"? Is she nothing but a lesbian? Being reduced to simply one's sexual orientation is degrading whether gay, straight, or into animals.

  64. 64

    you say lesbian like its a handicap

  65. 65

    Hi, I am from Denmark and we didn't choose Sarah because she had a great voice, we chose her because she is a great role model

    and what about Adam Lambert he didn't win american idol because he was gay he won american idol because he is a great singer, and i admit that Sarah isn't the best singer but we are proud of her…

  66. 66

    Ok, I live in Denmark and saw this show. She has a lot of charm and energy and she's got a naturally smokey voice that could do well with coaching. that said, although Sarah can sing, her version of Pokerface was not good. She did way better when she sang with Car Park North and when she sang the 'winner's song'.

    I agree her sexual orientation shouldn't be necessary to include but she played that card almost from day one - mostly I think to avoid the obvious questions that were bound to come re: why she dresses like a boy (or rather cultivates an androgynous look) ;)

    The media hype her is that she is brave - and to win over the judge who was to coach her but initially was not impressed with the whole boyish-girl act - says something about her personal charm and sense of self.

    I didn't vote for her but obviously many others did.

  67. 67

    Sarah is a young girl - gay- so be it, but stop putting a label on her. She's a human being, she has feelings and she reads what you write about her. She is talented and she is only 15 and she first startet singing a year ago, so before you judge her singing think about that.

    Ps. I had a longer post 3 pages, so you can see that if you can find my blog!


  68. 68

    Oh yeah she's gay OF COURSE Perez will suck the shit out of her ass.

  69. 69

    I love her voice :) Not the right song for her though… something a bit more… emotional, and slower might suit her a bit more. Something with a bit of soul if you know what I mean. Not pop..

  70. 70

    I hate being Danish atm…

  71. 71

    Jerod Day: You said, that in a small country like Denmark "you have what you have", but that's not correct, because some of the other contesters, were much more amazing, but they didn't have the X-factor, and that's what this show is about, right?.

  72. 72

    BeautifulDisaster311: That was the lamest thing, you could ever say. OMG, you have lack morals! - Just look at your name. It's written with BIG letters, that you are not beautiful and you are a disaster!

  73. 73

    "Hey my name is Sarah, i'm 15 years old, and i'm a lesbo, therefore i'm gonna win X Factor"

  74. 74


    Another piece of sewer slime from the Dutch. Most degenerate society in the world.

  75. 75

    REPLY TO MOST OF THE IDIOTIC POSTS ON HERE. Of course he is going to put LESBIAN on..he is a GAY spokesman oh yeah this is A GAY WEBSITE! The whole point of this post it to show that not all countries are bigoted assholes like america is

  76. 76

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – Danish you stupid idiot! Go back to school

  77. 77

    Wow that sucks big time.

  78. 78

    That's like saying 15 year-old black girl, Mexican, chola, Cuban, French, Chinese…

    WTH Mario. She doesn't need a label.

  79. 79

    I did find it kind of funny that they showed her kissing her girlfriend like it was no big deal at all. In the US, you would never see American Idol or similar shows broadcasting any 15-yr-old contestant kissing their boyfriend/girlfriend, gay or not. It just goes to show you how different and open some cultures out there are.

  80. 80

    im half dane, half american but i live in denmark. there are 5 million people in denmark and over 300 million people in the us, which is obviously very clear that there are more talented people in the us than in denmark. i must say that sarah wasent the best singer and i didnt thought she was going to win. she was up against a better performer and singer - but sarah won and thats how it is!! in denmark, xfactor is not all about the singing skills but also about the attitude and being different. though i didnt vote for her :) )

  81. 81

    Just wanted to note, that even though I love her and voted for her - yes, I'm a dane - her performance of Pokerface was not at all her usual standard. She'd done much better earlier on the show, and did so later that evening. The song was simply not suited for her voice. (I in fact believe only one person can truly pull that song off, that being miss Gaga) That happens. Blame it on the mentor, or whatever. And dear Perez, please pick a better example next time, there are plenty… Unless ofcourse you just wanted a video with her making out with her girlfriend, and care shit about her singing? Ôo

  82. 82

    All right, but Denmark is a really small place.
    This is good for a teenaged minor, but this wouldn't be a winning performance in a larger country. Seriously.

  83. 83

    This was not her best performence, at all. Bad video choice Perez, she has been doing so much better than this video is showing..

  84. 84

    so she clearly won this show based on her sexuality, because her voice isn't fantastic. she sung about 5 different notes, quite badly in this song. its true that the gay community is ruining tv at the moment. everything has to be camped up beyond recognition and sexuality is obviously starting to take precedence over talent.

  85. 85

    she look like p!nk

  86. 86

    Denmark is small, but I wouldn't live anywhere else. Sarah is an awesome person, and she can sing and develop her voice - you can't compare her to people in the US or the UK - she danish, and proud of winning, and so am I.

  87. 87

    We're not talentless in Denmark..apparently we just have alot of deaf ppl here..

  88. 88

    Oh god! Shut up people!
    She is amazing, and all you think of is that little word 'lesbian'??
    Do you know that??
    She didn't sang 'Pokerface' very well, but listen to some other songs!
    Listen to the song fucking perfect okay??
    And stop that lesbian talk? It not that big a deal!
    And from what I have written you can say, that Im from DK..And I voted for her.
    You can write what you want to this comment, but I don't care!


  89. Sanz says – reply to this


    Do people actually think she's a good singer? Because she wouldn't even win a karaoke contest in UK or US. While I haven't followed the show and am sure she's a lovely girl, I have a nagging feeling they let her win for the ratings because, just like Perez just demonstrated with this OMG LOOK A LESBIAN DID SOMETHING post, being somehow "different" from the main demographic in the nature of any competition seems to score you extra pity cookie points these days. Like a plus size ANTM model that won while in reality she couldn't take a good picture to save her life. Or Perez' post about how not a single person of colour won an Oscar and it's obviously a conspiracy. If people demand equality I don't see why they enjoy receiving/expect to receive special treatment for things people otherwise wouldn't give a shit about if it was achieved by an ordinary white straight slim person. I have black friends, I have fat friends, I have gay friends, I have friends with learning disabilities.

  90. Sanz says – reply to this


    My black friends don't enjoy people throwing them a parade because they aren't involved in street crime and have a legit job, my gay friends don't enjoy people forcing sickly happy expressions when they kiss their bfs/gfs out in the public and my fat friends don't enjoy people telling them that big is beautiful every minute of the day. My friends with learning disabilities don't expect to receive a high five, a pat on the back and be called a good boy/girl every step of the way. I'm sure people would love to be recognized for their talent, not their special factor, there was really no need to point out this girl was gay, we are not idiots, she kisses a girl in the video.

  91. Sanz says – reply to this


    Forgot a sentence: If people demand equality I don't see why they enjoy receiving/expect to receive special treatment for things people otherwise wouldn't give a shit about if it was achieved by an ordinary white straight slim person. And I'm not saying they do because many of them don't yet people feel the stupid need to be all "HEY GUYS, THIS MAN WIPED HIS ARSE AND HE'S FROM ANOTHER PLANET, IS INTO HUMPING TREES, HAS GREEN SKIN AND 3 LEGS, ISN'T IT AMAZING WHAT GREEN TREE HUMPING 3 LEGGED MARS ALIENS HAVE ACHIEVED IN MODERN SOCIETY?! LET'S PERFORM A MASS "AWHHH!"". It's embarrassing.

  92. 92

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – Its danish.. not dutch.. denmark not holland.. get ur facts straight before u comment or ull just end up sounding like a stupid american.. which btw is all we see u as here in dk.. that ppl in america is totally blank :D .. lol.. so up urs voice of sanity.. go back to school.. cus app u havent studied quite enough to comment :p

  93. 93

    Re: roxy1988 – LMAO!! Mean but funny…

  94. 94

    Actually I don't think Sarah gives a shit that she's described as a lesbian. But it sounds like you are not as used to people being gay and being cool with it in the US as we are in Denmark. Here it is not really that big a deal. I didn't even know she was a lesbian until her girlfriend was interviewed during the finale.
    About her singing you are totally right though, she's definetely not a very good singer (in her defence her performance singing Pokerface is one of the worst she has ever made) but she's an incredible performer, not many 15 year old girls would be able to perform like she does! And I think that's the reason she won. She's a bit different and people like her, so they voted for her. But of course we have better singers in Denmark. Half of my friends are better singers. But actually no one in X Factor 2011 was REALLY talented. The talented singers that we do have in Denmark often don't want to join X Factor because it is not the best way to become famous if you want to be considered a serious artist. Those who win X Factor are often forgotten quite a short time after the shows end.

  95. 95

    YES, you knew she was a lesbian! It was all over the papers for five months in Denmark, because it was actually a big thing. Så don't say it's not. I am Danish (not always proud of it like in this case of a complete talentless girl who can't sing), and everybody talked about it all the time.

  96. 96

    The only thing that was impressing about the X-Factor finale in Copenhagen is that around 40.000 people actually showed up to see three crappy people try to be considered singers. The worst thing? The one who was the most crappy singer actually won!!! And let me get this fact straight (I did not use that word on purpose :-) but Danish television called it the worlds biggest X-Factor finale, counting the 40.000 people, but I can't believe that's true. Can somebody please give me some numbers for the live audience at one of the American X-Factors.

  97. 97

    Re: Emma Lund – Yes it is. And it's more crappy!

  98. 98

    Re: Mette Thornvig Heiselberg – Two questions: How old are you, little girl? And what is a "ppl"?

  99. 99

    Re: Percolito – ppl is people…
    And what has Mette's age got to do with anything?
    But no, I didn't know she was a lesbian. Maybe I read different newspapers than you do, I don't know. I think that some news is more important than who's gay in X Factor. And maybe my friends and I just talk about other things.

  100. 100

    Re: Percolito – I agree with edcwsxqaz. And I didn't know either. And besides, just because Sarah is not a great singer, I think it is unfair to say that all Danish music is crap.. it's not. We do have other music than what's in X Factor.
