I was just reading the Sunday papers today, and listening to the X Factor in the background – I recorded it last night. When Matt Cardle started singing “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, I put the paper down, and within seconds I was actually holding back tears. This hardly ever happens to me! I am not one to go onto forums on the Internet, but firstly, I feel so moved by Matt’s singing, and secondly I am appalled that Simon Cowell did not allow him to finish the song. I am amazed that I have had such a strong sense of feeling in this, but there we go. I look forward to an album by Matt Cardle – his voice is exquisite – and he deserves to win the X factor on the opening notes of the above mentioned song.
Best wishes to everyone who reads this – and lets all of us support Matt Cardle
