Is there anything sexier than Michael Bolton? Well, the forthcoming cover of the next GT, actually. But you'll have to wait a little longer than that.
In the mean time, though, Sam Bailey is launching her debut album – The Power of Love – imminently, and it comes complete with a smashing duet of none other than the man himself.
We have a sneak peak at the making of the track Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, which she recorded with Bolton.
The pair with the powerful pipes are seen harmonising in the studio as they recreate this Motown classic. With 11 ballads on the album including the title track – which is a cover of the Jennifer Rush hit – and Get Here by Brenda Russell that was a top 10 smash in 1991. Oh, and it also features her ol' pal Nicole Scherzinger, too.
Sam is hoping star power will ensure she's the first X Factor winner to reach number one with a debut album since Alexandra Burke, who claimed the top spot with her album Overcome in 2009. Power of Love goes on sale 24th March, just in time for mother’s day. So that’s the present sorted this year then.
You can also catch Sam on The X Factor live tour, which kicks off this weekend at London's Wembley Arena. Check out www.ticketmaster.co.uk for more.
