Rhydian is a baritone, not a tenor, so that made the rest of your post redundant for me. original.gif And I doubt you'll find many good tenors singing in bars...

Once again, this thread is about Rhydian, not Leona. Please go and post about Leona in her own thread... original.gif

tenor, baritone whatever he tries to be operatic when in reality all he is, is a poor mans paul potts, and paul potts is a poor man's liberache (sp?)

so thats Rhydian pretty far down the class scale.

and if you ignore the rest of my post and brand it as nonsense due to one mistake I made thats real immature you pretend its all just nonsense because you dont like reading an opinion that differs from yours/

leona was brought up by other people, you spoke about her in a negative way in this thread so im entitled to carry on the discussion its called freedom of speech..something I dont think you like when it differs from your opinion.

Of course Rhydian is not going to appeal to everyone but he certainly attracted a lot of attention and many, many fans with his performances on the X Factor. I do not normally watch this show but by chance landed on the channel just as he was singing Phantom of the Opera in week 2 - a truly mesmerising performance which showcased his incredible stage presence, it was this performance which really captured the imagination of the viewers and won him many admirers, including Simon Cowell and the other judges.
There is no point comparing him others, each singer is unique and will have their own fans. They can exist together in the music world. But he is not weird, he is an extremely intelligent and articulate young man - an interviewer's dream, he is modest and hard working and very versatile - a real performer and showman who also won critical aclaim and awards during his university studies.

Liberace was a pianist wasn't he? How could a singer be a poor man's pianist?

Except we have yet to hear Rhydian sing opera, and he can do this very well indeed as is clear from the critical acclaim and awards he received while at university at the prestigious Birmingham Conservatorium. He is no Paul Potts, at 24 he has not even begun his operatic career, his voice will first mature in many years. But he is certainly no 'poor man's Paul Potts', he possesses stage presence and charisma and is versatile, over the eight weeks he provided the most varied performances ranging from Meatloaf, through to Phantom of the opera, You Raise Me Up, to name but a few. The latter was a performance for which he received a personal letter from the song-writer who named it the best performance of his song that he had ever heard. Leona is very talented, will probably be a super-star but is too different to compare - there is no need to, there is enough room in the music world for Leona, Paul Potts, Josh Groban and Rhydian and who ever else might come along.
Perhaps you do not rate Rhydian, that is your perogative - but it doesn't take away from the fact that he is a very talented young man who single-handedly made this year's X Factor worth watching.

After the Finale at X Factor Rhydian also recieved the personal letter from British Prime Minister Gordon Brown expressing his admiration for Rhydian and his singing. innocent.gif Even PM is a fan of Rhydian! yes.gif

I don't understand the people who have come in here with the sole intention of putting Rhydian down. I wouldn't dream of doing that with Leona in her thread, or whomever else is being discussed on here. I seriously doubt you are going to change our minds, as music, like most things is subjective, isn't it? So it's all rather pointless and is just likely to cause arguments.

From the News of the Word newspaper today:

"X-Factor loser (we'll ignore that obvious error) Rhydian Roberts has an aching hand after spending Christmas writing letters to more than 1000 fans.

The 23-year old blond singer penned personal replies to a flood of mail at his home in mid-Wales, before jetting out to Mexico for a holiday on Thursday.

His father Malcolm said: 'It's typical of Rhydian that he wanted to look after his fans.'"

Obviously you don't know about Josh Groban. If you ever really listen Josh has far better low tone and depth then Rhydian. Your fav looks very old for 24, and that's perhaps because he's so thin?? I think he's too addicted to working out or something. I suppose he's got talent, but I'm with Sharon Osborne, and I'll just leave it at that. Take care, I'm outta here.


Are you saying that Rhydian is thin?
Does Rhyd appear to you as being thin on these pics? shocked.gif bleh.gif

I don't get it either, unsure.gif I don't that much about him, but people that like him shouldn't have to defend their personal taste. Everyone is entitled to have their own favorites.

Leona Lewis.. She's absolutely phenominal and will probably have more sales than any other idol winner from over here. Actually, she'll probably sell more than most of the artists who are out now.


Feel free to go discuss Leona in her own threads. original.gif

Here is the Rhyd's performance "The Phantom of Opera" from the X Factor.

With this performance Rhydian has been "dragging" me again and again into some strange ecstasy of pleasure, yearning and sadness. heart.gif

This was the performance that grabbed the attention of many - including that of myself and, more importantly, that of Andrew Lloyd-Webber.
