Lucy Spraggan, a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from Sheffield, UK, is the latest sensation to hit the UK X-Factor stage, and brought an audience to its feet over the weekend with a song she wrote about drinking called "Last Night".

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Spraggan is out and proud. She told The Mirror: “My mum loves gay people, she thinks she’s part of the cool club now...X Factor must do wonders for your love life. Girls do love girls with guitars.”

  1. A song about drinking? My, how rebellious. Gee, how original.

    Sorry, darling, but the lesbian-with-a-guitar routine was done years ago by Melissa Etheridge. You're at least 20 years behind, sweetie.

  3. I thought it was clever. I found myself listening intently to the words. I laughed several times. Not every often can someone sing there own stuff and get that kind of reaction. I look forward to hearing what she does next

  5. Sounds like Jason must have been scorned by a lesbian playing a guitar.

    I thought she was great.

  6. It's always great to see talent recognised! What a great, natural performer and what a witty songwriter she is.

    Jason, you need to expand your horizons, fella! If you think this is what lesbians playing guitars usually looks like, you've exposed your ignorance of both British social song writing AND lesbians with guitars! I know you come here to find other peoples' parades to rain on as a way to help you get through the ennui of your own meaningless existence, but do please try to make an effort.

  10. Clever writing and well done. Def not standing ovation worthy tho. You can't force a Susan Boyle moment haha.

  11. Clever and fun, and I'd buy it as a single.

  12. God Jason bores me. He must be so talented to rip into a stranger for her genuine efforts.

  13. Ah! She's wonderful, endearingly coy, and knows how to sell a song... Count me in! Loved her!

  15. Would viewers of X Factor know she's lesbian, or do you have to read The Mirror?

  16. What a terrible panel of judges.

    I have no idea who the white girl is, Mel B is pure, dumb trash, Gary Barlow is so far up his own arse and Louis Walsh is too old to know what's happening with styles and trends any more.

    What a pathetic show !

  17. Funny! She's definitely talented. I checked out another song of her's called "Tea & Toast" (the vid was of her on a couch). It was great, and whew...gave me a strong emotional reaction I wasn't expecting.

  18. Well done! Hard to wrap the audience around your little finger in just a few seconds - but you did it. Fun, clever song. Hope you have more up your sleeve!

    Jason, next time, why no limit your first-post snark to "First" and call it a day? We'll know you've been here and at the same time be saved from your trolling negativity.

  19. By the way, the track has already been pulled from Amazon. I guess they don't want her to make the big bucks on her own.
