Folk-pop singer/songwriter Emma's Imagination became an overnight success after winning the first series of Sky 1's antidote to The X Factor, Must Be the Music. She received unanimous praise from the show's three judges, Dizzee Rascal, Sharleen Spiteri, and Jamie Cullum, thanks to her melancholic brand of acoustic folk-pop, and following a semifinal performance of the self-penned "Focus," which reached the Top Ten a week later, she beat the Pictures in the final at Wembley Arena to win the show's £100,000 prize. Her winning song, "This Day," became her second chart hit, and after signing a deal with Gary Barlow's Future Records label, she recorded her debut album, Stand Still, which reached number 14 when released in early 2011. ~ Jon O'Brien
