Fleur East just changed The X Factor game

The performance everyone's talking about

You don't watch The X Factor. We get it. You've got better things to do with your Saturday night ten weeks in a row. You've heard it all before.

Except: maybe you haven't.

This weekend, 26-year-old Fleur East delivered a performance that cynical old Si-Co himself described as among his top three X Factor performances ever.

East's rendition of Uptown Funk - an as-yet unreleased track by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson - shot to the top of the iTunes chart. She performed it wearing Moschino. Lily Allen tweeted congrats. 


In short: you need to see it.
