OK,much as I despise schmaltzy, ego-driven TV talent shows, I am just going to have to resign myself to the fact that 'TV talent shows + Youtube' currently seems to be a parallel path many of these singers are seeking in order to gain exposure. I suppose I can't blame them, although I'll stick to finding them on Youtube .
I rather like this one - Lili Caseley:

...to my ears, her voice sounds slightly like a female version of Labi Siffre. She's certainly got that spark of genuine talent, IMO; I suspect she'll make it big, in due course.
