Pop sensation Leona Lewis says talent and attitude are two things that have brought female British singers to the Grammys in recent years. Citing what many have called the “Brit Invasion,” Leona says “I think that they’re just so talented, like you know Amy Winehouse, Adele, Duffy, just really really talented singers, and they’ve been given opportunity.” Lewis’ statement follows a near record setting number of Grammy nominations received by female British stars including Estelle, who nabbed a nod for the hit single “American Boy”. While Lewis says her counterparts are talented, she also admits that their success is a direct result of their attitude. “I think that’s the main thing. If you’re somewhere, the right place at the right time, and you’ve got the right attitude and talent, you can kind of get where you want to be.” Leona Lewis is expected to attend this weekend’s Grammy Awards where she is nominated for three awards, including Record of the Year (“Bleeding Love”). As previously reported on Singersroom, the 51st Annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday, Feb. 8 on CBS. Click Here for a recap of this year’s nominees including Jazmine Sullivan, Trey Songz and Usher.
