****
Nice track. Sounds quite a bit like Scouting For Girls, and another singer whose name I can't recall.
*****
The best UK X Factor winners single I've heard to be honest
****
Liked the original and this raw sounding version is good too. 746,998 sold while at #1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. 1.3 million copies sold in the UK.

Ich finde das cover sehr gut! Es steht dem original in keinster Weose hinterher!!
Gebe "Starmania" recht, er hat wirklich e gute stimme!
5*

edit: nach dem Auftritt von Ricardo Bielecki bei DSDS gefält mir der song nun wieder richtig gut! verdammt geile stimme, viel besser als das Original!!! 6*

Pretty good track, I really don't like his accent though cause it makes it hard to understand him at times.
****
His voice reminds me of someone that I can't place. I'm going to save face and say that it's Scott Matthews as I can't think of a better example yet. It's a good choice of song for once too, as it's a song that I did like, but didn't hear too much. Not sure how to compare it to the original, but I like this.
***
Not too bad, just a bit dull.
**
Very dull.
*
Hope this doesnt last long....

He sounds like a blubbering walrus. Sounds like he is singing trough his teeth. Cannot stand it. What a bloody shock that it is a hit cuz its crap.

At this point in time, I find it alright, but this score could go either way. It is a bit dull I admit.
*****
I'm usually dismissive of covers and this version seemed average at first. Further listens and I really like it now, and I find the production here is even better than Shontelle's great original. The moment where the guitar comes in the first chorus, and then the strings in the second chorus is brilliant!
***
Pretty dull, couldn't really enjoy it.
*
Worst song of 2013 so far. The original is far far better because she can actually sing. He sounds like a sea elephant trying to call out or whatever sea elephants do when they make noises.

I'm glad that he was 'harpy'.

Do not like this at all! It is dull and his voice doesn't suit the song. It isn't fair that he is having huge success with this song when the original by Shontelle is so much better :(
*****
Solid track which continues to grow on me. 4.3*

EDIT: I'd like to see him have another hit to consolidate his success. Not sure if that will happen though. 5*

Thought it was dull at first but I grew to enjoy it. There are some weird moments with the vocals, but there are also strong ones as well. Though I do like the original more this is an interesting take on it.

Peaked at #36 on my personal chart
#88 on my 2013 EOY

This has really grown on me. It bored me to bits in the beginning but now I really enjoy it. It's catchy as and although it's no where near the original it is still really solid. 4.5*
**
James has got a good voice and he's a got a really promising career ahead of him, as long as he works with the right people. But the truth of the matter is, these X Factor winner singles are all boring. There's nothing exciting or new that comes out of them, and for that reason, I can't understand why this one out of the other nine has become a Worldwide hit. Boring, rehashed garbage.
**
Quite bad
***
Personally I prefer Shontelle's original. This one sounds a bit forced. It's a different take on the song though.

Poor - I don't know why it's become a hit...
*****
Great cover and maybe the new popstar?
*
Intolerable
***
I really didn't enjoy this at first but I guess in reality it's just one of those songs that you can listen to in the background without being to offended.
He's an odd looking creature though...
*****
love it
****
Not bad.
***
3 stars
***
Average.
***
What made this popular a month after he won X-Factor not in Australia but the UK? It took Little Mix and Leona Lewis a year to break here, along with One Direction (although they didn't win X-Factor). Songs OK.
***
it is average
**
Average song, not great.
***
Eh.
