And Long May She Raign Over All Of Us


I’ve already shared my opinion on the future of the X Factor but before I let it go completely there is one more thing I’d like to add. Raign!

Both female “judges”, but it was mostly Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, openly and, might I add, unprofessionally expressed her dislike for one of the contestants this year – Raign.

I can only imagine it was jealousy. Raign can sing, write, perform, and produce and Cheryl can’t even take a drink without poking herself in the face with a straw.

I think Raign has everything required for whatever having the “X Factor” even means and I can see a brilliant future for her.

The song “Don’t Let Me Go” she performed in one of the auditions is one of her own and used in the soundtrack to The Vampire Diaries.

She does an awesome cover of “Wicked Game”

Another original song from her is called “A Queen’s Head” and shows off her creativity, voice and, ahem, other talents.

Raign has also collaborated with a dance act called Swanky Tunes and had a number one hit in Russia with “Fix Me”.

I love her voice, I love her sound and her style and I am looking forward to seeing what happens next!
