46 of you rated - thanks to everyone who did! I have now worked out the full results, including the top 10, flops and of course the winner. ohmy.gif

To all you Leona fans over from Digital Spy, you're all encouraged to comment, predict and share your opinion of how the rate is going and how you expect/hope it's going to go.

I'll try not to drag this out longer than a few days - I'm going to kick this off today and get rid of the three flops that couldn't muster a 7 average and scored lowest. Any guesses as to which singles they might be?

I'm guessing the 3 flops will be I Will Be, Lovebird and I Got You.

Happy to win!!! (with OMS and Thunder finishing top 3).

18th: Lovebird
Average: 5.95



Happy; Insomnio (9), cowboystyle (9), Riser (9), J▲hq (9)
Trouble; tintin (-1), bartsimpson (-1), Karma (1), mr_pmt (2), Froot. (3), Ultraviolence1989 (3)

Poor ĎLovebirdí, is famous mostly for not making the top 200 upon its release week. Sadly, us Leona fans arenít too keen on it as a single choice either, as it doesnít even make a 6 average. Personally, I like it. I think itís a nice song. But at the same time I think we can all agree that it was never going to smash as a single.

The best thing about Lovebird is its single artwork.

17th: Fire Under My Feet
Average: 6.87



Happy; April (10), Cameron (10), Insomnio (10), Adam92 (9.5), Juranamo (9.5)
Trouble; LeeWallace (-1), Joe (3), Jay (3), JosephStyles (3), J▼hnkm (3.5)

This song was hugely anticipated by Leona fans and general fans of pop music. In fact, it felt like forever that we waited for it. Though it does have its genuine fans (April, Cam and Insomino giving it one of their three 10s!) I think a lot of the hype around its release came from people wanting to like the song, because we were finally getting new music from Leona. The UK public didnít quite connect with it, since Leonaís big comeback single sadly charted at #51. For me personally, I find the theme is slightly too cliched/overdone to get on board with - especially with that seen-10000 times before video. Leona, as usual, sounds effortlessly wonderful on the track, but the song ultimately does not really go anywhere and itís easily the weakest song Iíve heard on I Am.

I really like the artwork/video for "Lovebird", shame about what happened to it. :sniff:

"Fire Under My Feet" is good, but one of my least favourite songs from I Am.

16th: I Will be
Average: 6.9



Happy; Riser (10), Leonagwen (9.5), Jay (9), JosephStyles (9), Krusty111 (9), burbe (9), Ryan. (9.5)
Trouble; LeeWallace (0)

A single that will pushed in America, which stars the incredibly hot Chace Crawford. Itís a lovely little track from Spirit but isnít up there with Leonaís best. ĎRuní should have been pushed instead. ĎI Will Beí is SO close to managing a 7 average, but falls short by 0.10.

Glad that "Lovebird" is last, such a boring choice, especially over the brilliant "Glassheart". "Fire Under My Feet" is kinda disappointing comeback and "I Will Be" is ok, but I do agree though that "Run" should have been pushed over there, or maybe "Take A Bow"

I think 'I Will Be' suits Avril a lot better. Even though Leona is a great vocalist and Avril... well, isn't, I feel she emotionally connects with it a lot better.

Yeah it's 10/10 for artwork, she looks incredible. The song is just so bad i just still to this day do not get why that was even discussed as a possible single choice, so so bizarre.

'Lovebird' should never have been a single with the likes of 'Glassheart', 'Come Alive' and 'Shake You Up' on the album. 'Fire Under My Feet' had the potential to be a great song but the production/mastering of the track lets it down. The burp during "quicksand" or whatever it is is off-putting. 'I Will Be' is one of the better songs on Spirit but considering I don't really rate the album that high anyway, it doesn't really say much for the song.

Fire Under My Feet should be last. A total non started melodically and hook wise, but even worse to waste the little goodwill and hype she had surrounding her 'comeback' with THAT reheated tripe is surely going to be the last nail in her (commercial) coffin.

I still somewhat cringe at the "I Will Be" video. Leona's acting is alright I guess, but the ending with her in handcuffs/playing the bad girl I can never take seriously. laugh.gif

Lovebird gets a hard time I think sad.gif It's not THAT bad. Fire Under My Feet is just messy though and never properly clicked, should've been last.

15th: Hurt
Average: 7



Happy; Insomnio (11), Karma (10), Ryan. (9.5),
Trouble; mr_pmt (2), *Tim (2),

Okay, so technically this wasnít a single, but itís performance on X factor had a huge impact and it managed to chart top 10, so I couldnít not include it in the rate. I think her performance of this was stunning and Iíve always enjoyed her cover - I think this should have been a couple of places higher in the rate, but Iím glad it managed a 7 average...
