The Latasha Lee Story.

How Losing X Factor USA Can Make You A Winner.

It happens in all of the countries where X Factor, the television talent competition is broadcast. X Factor is a global success, but the winner is not always the most successful as a recording artist after the competition.

When each new series is aired on British TV I always watch it with enthusiasm. Believing now that the show has almost ran it's course because of the farce that it was in the UK in 2012.

I have to say that the great British public always like an underdog and vote or the one's who they often feel sorry for and not for the best singer / performer.

I didn't follow the US version of the show but was astounded when I saw Latasha Lee sing for the first time here on Hub Pages. For those of you not familiar with the singer you can visit her Hub Pages here,

Unsure as to whether this is her personal attempt at promoting her videos or someone who has recognised her potential and is trying to cash in on her you tube hits. I am glad to whoever it is who is responsible for the HP account because I may never have come across her otherwise.

Introducing Latasha Lee and the BlackTies.

If you want see all Latasha's music videos in one place click here and go to her You Tube site. Make sure you check out her You Tube site and you can say that you saw her here first.

If you take time to read some of the comments left on her site, most agree that she is Amy Winehouse reincarnated. It seems strange that Simon Cowell has let her get away from his grasp as he usually snaps up the talent likely to make money for him.

Latasha the talent.

If you ever heard Amy Winehouse sing you will understand when I say that Latasha Lee, in my opinion could be better than AW. I wasn't particularly a fan of AW because of all the torment and baggage that came with her. She was an outstanding talent all the same.

Latasha on X Factor

Having reached Bootcamp and the top 50 in X Factor Latasha Lee Robinson did not do herself justice due to, what I saw as a serious attack of nerves. Combine that singing a song which is chosen by the judges, this amazing talent was under threat and likely never to reach the potential I and many others now see. This plucky young woman has so much to offer the music scene in 2013.

Latasha Lee X Factor Audition

What a transformation.

You have to agree that the Latasha Lee on X Factor is no comparison to the performer you see now. Determined not to be cast aside she has used the defeat to great effect and has come back much stronger. If ever there was a winner, she is it. Here you have proof that losing on X Factor can make you a winner.

    Thanks to


    The UK version has only one season left which is not surprising considering the 2012 season. It's run it's course now over here. Looks like Simon Cowell has moved onto food now with Food Glorious Food.

    Kathryn ,

    I totally agree with what you say. Great comments.


    Your votes are appreciated. I hope she is successful too.


    Your comments are great, thanks and I am so glad you like my articles. It makes it so much more worthwhile when you receive great feedback.

    A great article Steve... I really enjoyed reading this. Inspiration is all around us but more often than not we're inundated with lessor, frivolous stuff. I love your take on life, which shines through in all your work.

    Sometimes the singing contests' losers end up eventually as big stars in their own right, unlike the true winners. I just hope that Latasha Lee will be a big singing sensation very very soon enough.

    Really great, well-written and inspirational. Voted up. :)

    That is great! You discovered a gem who is doing good despite not making it in the X-Factor competition, and soon you will be able to interview her via her producer/manager. Thanks for bringing her up, so we can enjoy her. I look forward to the interview, as well.

    I know that even with the other big show, American Idol, many who don't quite make it end up having a lot of success, and it is always inspirational. I guess it just gives them a chance to get their name and voice out there, and someone notices the talent and takes them under their wing. Many times they try extra hard (instead of just giving up in defeat), and they end up singing even better than before.

    Well done Steve on highlighting this super talent. I have watched X Factor UK more than the American one but you are so right with the public often voting the wrong ones to stay or proceed in the comp. Congrats on a great thumbs up for Latasha Lee!!

    Salih, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You must be so proud of her. I would love to do an interview and publish it here on Hub Pages. I take it that it is you who set up the latashalee pages here? Maybe I can send in some questions to you at for her to answer. Any information / pictures etc would be great.

    I am so excited for her and would love to be a part of her journey.

    I look forward to hearing from you very soon

    Have a great Sunday and give Latasha Lee my best wishes.

    JAS thanks for reading. Not sure if she has made the account herself or it is someone impersonating her to cash in on her success before it happens. Hey, wonder if it's Simon Cowell ?

    I remember watching this season of X-Factor and I remember Latasha so well. Never knew she had a hub right here and I will go and check it out as well as listening to some of her videos. I loved her on X-Factor.

    Thanks Steve for bringing out this article, I never really watch the show, but I will do so now, that poor lady was so sad I watched the video there, Natasha seems like a cool person and the fact that she's a fellow hubber makes this hub so much more surreal, wow!

    I will be looking out for her for sure now as well, thanks again bro for bringing this hub to the hub today, and welcome back bro. Awesome write up, voted up and out!
