Emma’s thoughts have won Must Be the Music 2010.
The Edinburgh born singer, whose real name is Emma Gillespie, has come a long way from busking on the streets of Glasgow.
The talented 27 year old blew the viewers and judges away on the Sky1 talent show, with her performances of Focus and This Day during last night’s live finals at Wembley Arena.
Following in the footsteps of leading Scots singer / songwriters like Amy MacDonald, KT Tunstall and show judge, Sharleen Spiteri, Emma is now set to rainstorm the charts after show fans have been rushing to download her tracks.
Winning £100,000, Gillespie wheezed: "Thank you so much for supporting me, I couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t get my head around [the £100,000 prize money]."
Must be the Music has been a huge success and will return for another series next year. Many industry insiders feel it is a much more probable talent show than others that are currently out there.
Spiteri previously told The Sun: "I love the X Factor – it’s absolutely brilliant television. But the competitors have a very unrealistic view of the music industry.
"They want to be musicians and write songs. That’s the variation between the X Factor and Must Be The Music."
