After winning "X Factor," the British version of "American Idol," in 2006, Lewis decided to wait a year and take her time before putting out her debut album.

"It takes a long time to make a full body of work, something that I wanted to represent me and be proud of…and I knew that needed a lot of time," Lewis said of the decision not to rush the release of the album. (Heidi Gutman/ABC)
