Post links to arias that you like on YouTube. Doesn't have to be arias, by the way -- basically anything with good vocals.

Andrea Bocelli -- Ave Maria

Bocelli was actually Sidoh's recommendation :P Absolutely stunning performance of Ave Maria.

Okay, so, despite this being X Factor, a good song choice actually snuck right in there.

Leona Lewis -- "Summertime" (from the opera Porgy and Bess)

To put this in more context, I think it was straight from a performance of Les Mis.

Ruthie Henshall -- "I Dreamed a Dream"
