Listen To This: In Full Bloom!

This is special!!! And unlike anything else out there right now!

If Nina Simone were making music today, we think she'd sound a bit like Laura Mvula!

The British soul singer also reminds us a bit of The Noisettes and Estelle.

She's super dope!

Check out the percussively addictive Green Garden (above)!

X Factor Judges Dumbfounded By 13 Year Old Diva!

X Factor’s second season premiere has seen everyone from Britney fanboys to duet partners of times past and all that’s in between!

However, as we saw on last night’s show, Carly Rae Jepsen may be no match for Carly Rose Sonenclar!

The 13 year old hit the stage and stunned EVERYONE with her rendition of Nina Simone's Feeling Good!

Check out the show stopping audition (above)!

SO much soul for such a little girl!!! She even got a standing O from all four judges — and that's NOT an easy thing to get from Simon Cowell!

We can’t wait to see what else Carly Rose has in store for us this season!

Ed Sheeran Wants To Be Your Soulful Wife!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTVEd Sheeran

Mmmmm, YES!! Oh smother us in that velvety, chocolate vocal sauce, Ed Sheeran!

The ginger biscuit that adds SO much sweetness to our lives may or may not be playing with Pink Floyd at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremonies, but at least we can reveal Ed's insane, acoustic cover of Nina Simone's Be My Husband (above)!

Nina Simone is quite the intimidating icon to cover, as her signature, soul-splitting voice simply slayed any song-monster blocking its path, but holy red-hot smokes! Ed's rendition of Be My Husband is supremely rich and layered like the finest of musical cakes!

We insist you take a gander RIGHT NOW and let Ed add some passionate fire to your moody blues.

So many soul-stuffed hearts!

Filed under: X FactorMelanie Amaro

She is the winner!!!

Whether she actually is the champion or not come next week, Melanie Amaro is the true winner of X Factor America!

A talent like hers only comes along once every couple of years on shows like this!

The teenager has proven herself to be a world-class singer and has grown to be an absolutely riveting performer!

And last night Melanie delivered one of THE BEST performances of all time on a show like X Factor!

You must watch her performance of the Nina Simone/Michael Buble classic Feeling Good (above)!

That last note! The whole thing! And it was so great to see her loosen up and have fun! So confident! So passionate! So perfect!!!!

And, as if that weren't good enough, Queen Melanie also did a song chosen by the viewers, Mariah Carey's Hero.

We were hanging on to every note! We couldn't wait to hear her version of it! And she did Mimi so proud!

Check that out below!
