This is how it's done!
Pay attention, next generation. You don't need autotune, pyrotechnics or any of that jazz to be an amazing pop star. All you need is confidence, an appreciation for those who have come before you and a talent that rivals the greats.
Exhibit A: Leona Lewis!
As one of the few people who didn't pull out of the Michael Jackson tribute in Wales this weekend, she performed an explosively impressive cover of the Jackson Five's classic track, I'll Be There.
Watch the video (above) and you'll be blown away! Such a raw, amazing talent! If we could get her and Mariah Carey in a room to record a duet of this, our lives would be complete!

Oh well! Actions have consequences - sometimes even ones that last for YEARS!
