And just WHO is Emilie Esther? A 15 year old girl from Denmark, who went and WON the most recent series of Danish X Factor the weekend before last. This is her winner’s single, ‘Undiscovered’.
What’s it like? Shit-the-bed amazing. An ethereal Scandi-synth gem that’s dressed up as a big power ballad which has been tailored to sound like a winner’s single of a TV talent show. ‘Undiscovered’ is a league above what you would normally hear from an X Factor winner though. And we say that as huge X Factor fans.
Written by? Remee (legendary Danish songwriter, who was Emile’s mentor on the show) and Karen Poole.
What was Emilie like during her time on X Factor? Here she is performing a mash-up of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’ and Ariana Grande’s ‘One Last Time’. And at the final, as with UK X Factor, the finalists got to perform a duet with a big popstar. Here is Emilie performing with Stine Bramsen.
