Ok, its a good job I know who your going on about. I'm sure alot of people here ain't got a clue who Ray is and why he would be performing a swing version of CLTCL!

Ray is an 18-year-old contestant on the 'talent'show 'The X-Factor'.

He's 18?! I thought he looked about 14.

I think he's okay actually, I mean I don't expect him to win or anything but he was his own style and usually manages to pull it off quite well.

My favourite acts however, have to be Ben and Eton Road. Ben's got the best voice I've ever heard on a show like The X Factor, although I don't think the show really suits him. I also like Eton Road. For a boy band, they look and sound pretty original, expecially that odd looking gay one (Anthony?).

Only smarter?
And more talented?

yes it is like american idol but i dont know if its better...
the macdonald brothers,or the macdougalls as simon cowell calls them have to be heard to be believed..they are like a pair of drowning cats!
imagine the proclaimers with laryngitus and you get a rough idea...
however leona is fantastic as sharon osbourne would say and ben is a cross between rod stewart n joe cocker..
perhaps someone can find a link for macdonalds version of sailing and you can hear for yorself,but dont have any small children or pets within earshot!

I finally got around to watching this clip. The reason it sounds so odd is because it's a cover of a cover. Following me here? Michael Buble covered "Crazy Little Thing" with a very similar swing arrangement, and this kid is covering Buble's arrangment--not Queen's.

Someone needs to chill out a bit, take it easy and maybe go back to her medications, hehe :). There is already a country version of that song and now this. I didn't think the idea was that bad. Maybe the kid's voice could be better or the phrasing in some parts but I think it's a cool idea. I don't know why but it doesn't sound so blatantly different from other versions of the songs I've heard and it is a fresh take. Like when I heard Kid Rock's country version of Fat Bottomed Girls. A bit slower and expanding that country feeling that is already in the Queen track. Cool version also.
