Lesbian teen 'Sarah' has won Denmark's X-Factor.

The Copenhagen Post reports:

Xfactor_sara In front of a crowd of 40,000 at Parken Stadium and with millions more watching at home 15-year-old Sarah was voted winner of the 2011 season of X Factor last night.

Sarah’s win comes despite warnings by voice experts that she not be allowed to participate in the show due to concerns that she had been singing incorrectly and could do long-term damage to her vocal cords.

Sporting a crew cut and singing with a husky voice that has consistently earned her the praise of all three judges, Sarah stole much of the attention during the audition phase of the contest when she announced she was a lesbian, an announcement that caught the attention of the lesbian media.

A tipster writes us: "She kissed her girl friend on camera while Sarah's mother and her class mates stood next to them. The girl friend was even  interviewed during the show and asked what she fell for when she first met Sarah, and the girl friend answered: 'The whole package!' The 'lesbian thing' has been no big thing at all, nobody has raised an eye brow and Sarah has been out from the start."

  1. "Sarah’s win comes despite warnings by voice experts that she not be allowed to participate in the show due to concerns that she had been singing incorrectly and could do long-term damage to her vocal cords."

    Absurd. By that logic, Springstee, Steven Tyler, Janis Joplin, and a whole host of other iconic performers would never have had careers. There is no "right way" to sing. There is only what's right for the individual singer.

  2. Just how bad were the other contestants for her to win?

  3. Good for her, but she should probably heed those warnings or at the very least get a vocal coach who can help her achieve a good sound without destroying her singing ability.

    @The Milkman, listen to the original recording of "Dream On" and listen to Steven Tyler today -- it doesn't sound like the same person *at all*, and an aging body is probably not the only reason for that. Robert Plant -- same thing.

    Also, Janis Joplin voice was the *result* of mistreatment (not limited to excessive consumption of SoCo) and she died at 27, so what her voice would have devolved into over time is anybody's guess.

  4. Stevie Nicks is Exhibit A. She didn't receive any vocal training for the first thirty years or so of her career and went from being a songbird to being practically mute decades ago. She's only able to sing at all today because she finally got clean and sober and then got help to reverse what damage she could and learn how to work around what she couldn't.

    There is absolutely a right way to sing and Sarah hasn't learned it. If she doesn't, she won't be able to croak out anything at all by her early twenties if not before. As it is, it's painful to listen to her now.

  5. Well, I for one enjoyed the performance. A 15 year old lesbian not raising eyebrows, no matter what her singing style, is a positive.

    Stop spreading lies! If you're not a singer, shut up. See those people who actually use legit technique to an extent, they still have their voices today, with the exception of those who abused drugs.

    Look at christina aguilera, how she is quickly losing her voice now because of unhealthy technique.
