Stacey Solomon performs new 1940s-style single


Remember when only the winner of X Factor went on to have a recording career? Seems like a long time ago now. JLS, runners-up from the 2008 series, are arguably bigger stars than first-placed Alexandra Burke, while Diana Vickers, who didn’t even make the top three, might yet eclipse them both.

As for last year’s lot, both Jedward and Olly Murs have albums due for release before winner Joe McElderry.

All of which is but a drop in the cultural ocean compared to the news that third-placed Stacey Solomon, the oddly canine-looking Dagenham diva herself, has a single out on Monday.

It’s a cover of the Glenn Miller wartime classic At Last, which she also performed on the second live X Factor show of 2009.

Click on the video above to watch her singing it on GMTV. You might want to start the clip two minutes in though because the pre-performance interview with Lorraine Kelly is the televisual equivalent of self-administered root canal work.
