Diana Vickers, the unconventional semi-finalist from the British X Factor's Season 8, was one of my favorite discoveries in 2010. Her debut album sold 500,000 copies in the UK and her lead single "Once" (a personal fave) topped the UK pop charts. Here's a bonus track from her album that she's giving away to fans for free: http://tinyurl.com/24d6z6e. My suggestion: grab it!
