British singer-songwriter James Blunt topped US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with “You’re Beautiful”.
The last time a British singer to do so was back in 1997 from Sir Elton John.
James Blunt’s debut album “Back to Bedlam” also did pretty well, #5 at Billboard 200 albums chart.
James Blunt was an army officer before leaving the squad in 2002 to pursue his musician dream. The album Back to Bedlam was released in October 2004 at UK.
Back to Bedlam received great success and James Blunt won the best British male solo artist and best pop act at last month’s Brit Awards.
Undeniable that James Blunt make some different music and sing it in a very unique way. Some people love it, some people think that it’s a piece of crap.
Despite success at the Brit Awards, Back to Bedlam won the worst album at NME Awards. So it’s rather controversial at how good is Blunt’s music.
One thing that I am pretty sure, he won’t win the American Idol if he takes part, Simon will fire him from the audition straight away.
