Leona Lewis refuses to sing during awkward interview

During an interview with ‘The Xtra Factor’ Arabia, singer Leona Lewis declined to sing a few lines claiming she was unprepared.

Following Lewis’ live performance on the main show, host Rita Hayek conducted a wrap up interview with the star, rounding up with the request.

"Thank you, Leona. You were glowing on stage tonight! We wanna hear something special before you leave the Xtra Factor studio tonight."

"Oh, I didn't know I was going to sing,” said the visibly uncomfortable Lewis.

Hayek added: "Something very brief. Something special for the Xtra Factor contestants.” But Lewis simply replied “I didn’t prepare anything.”

The host pressed the star further - mentioning her cover of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' - but was met with a similar answer and the interview concluded soon after.
