The X Factor UK 2012 – Ella Henderson “Believe”

Folks in the UK are talking about X Factor contestant Ella Henderson’s “Adele-isation” of Cher’s hit dance song “Believe.”

In some ways, it reminds me of Matt Albers recent cover of “I Want To Dance With Somebody.” Sometimes when you slow the song down, you do the lyricist a favor and their work enjoys some new light. “Believe” sounds practically poignant in this version by Ella.

Cher herself gave the performance a thumbs up by tweeting her support.
