X-Factor 2010 Winner Crowned

Published: Sunday 12th Dec 2010 by Sam

The X-Factor 2010 drew to a close moments ago, crowning a brand new winner. Find out who takes this year’s title after the jump …

{For those unfamiliar with The X Factor, the show is the UK’s version of American Idol – with a twist in that groups and over 25’s are eligible to enter. Now in it’s seventh season, the show is responsible for birthing the careers of Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, and JLS. It’s US version is set to launch in 2011}.

After registering the  lowest public vote of the remaining finalists, favourites One Direction finished third in the competition.

With Matt Cardle and Rebecca Ferguson remaining, each took to the stage to perform their respective winning songs; Cardle singing a cover of Biffy Clyro’s ‘Many of Horror’, with Liverpudlian Ferguson following with a rendition of Duffy’s ‘Distant Dreamer’.

Following a tally of the last public vote, it was announced Matt had won the much sought after prize – a £1 million contract with SyCo/Sony Music.

The X Factor hits the US on FOX in 2011.

  9. KWON CAMPBELL December 12, 2010

    US AMERICANS COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THIS BS! WE HAVE ENOUGH CRAPPY BIASED TELEVISION OF OUR OWN…THANKS IN ADVANCE..

  10. OH GET OVER URSELF December 12, 2010

    BORING MATT WON…..HE WILL BE ANOTHER JOE….HE WILL GET FORGOTTEN…

    WORST FINALS EVER…

  11. jg_nycchop December 12, 2010

    speak for yourself… this american is glued to my computer watching this show every fall…cant wait 9 months for our own version…simon, cheryl, nicole scherzinger and will smith will make our version HUGE!

  12. YOOS December 12, 2010

    X FACTOR IS AMAZING, Much better than American Idol, and that’s not just because I’m British, but tbh, it is a lot lot better. Though Rebecca should have won. 🙂 and OHHHH ABOUT CIARA

  13. UGh December 12, 2010

    @JG_NYCCHOP

    Who is Cheryl? Will Smith is on it? :-O where have i been?

  14. Misty December 12, 2010

    Ya’ll are so stupid. The title gives away what the thread is about. if people haven’t watched it yet, then DONT click. It’s as simple as that. That’s what fingers are for–to click or not to click…

  15. Fatima December 12, 2010

    Yeah, we really need the jump to tell who won. Morons.

    I’m American and haven’t watched Idol in seasons but I have been following X-Factor. Something about it is much more fun although I can’t exactly explain what.

  16. Fatima December 12, 2010

    Misty – Don’t you think that photo kind of spoils it without clicking?

  17. F*** YOU SAM, YOU SPOILED IT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T WATCH THE WHOLE SHOW December 12, 2010

    SAM TOTALLY SPILED IT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE AFTER IT IS AIRED

    THIS SUCK, KNOWING WHO WON BEFORE SEEING THE WHOLE SHOW

    DAMN YOU SAM

    GO TO HELL

    YOU HAVE COMPLETELY LOST MY RESPECT

    FROM NOW ON I AM ALWAYS ON TRENT SIDE

  18. Stars December 12, 2010

    MATT HAD THE MOST VOTES ON EVERYWEEK OF THE SHOW!!

  19. elleuk December 12, 2010

    winner or next victim? male winners have a long history of getting dropped.
    steve brockstein, leon jackson and more recently shayne ward. joe is definity next and so is matt. after a new winner is crowned everyone will forget about matt and so the cycle will continu. simon cowell aint no clive davis, and xfactor winners never gain any credibility in the music industry and are snubed when it comes to winning any awards.
    rebecca got a lucky escape, i hope she sees sense and signs with a credible record label, and chucks simon the deuces on her way out.

  20. KWON CAMPBELL December 12, 2010

    THIS SHOW IS STUPID AS HELL, IT WILL FAIL MISERABLY IN THE STATES…

  21. MissImpartial December 12, 2010

    I wanted Rebecca to win. She has the voice, looks and is really humble. But at the same time I can see why Matt won as he is talented. It just that the male singers are never huge as the girls and I wanted a girl to win as last year winner was a boy.

  22. greg December 12, 2010

    LMAOOOOO @YOU F****** IDIOT

  23. Mack December 12, 2010

    Rihanna helped him win…LOL

  24. ChEeRfUl CyNiC XD December 12, 2010

    I knew he would i kinda think hes gonna be like Steve Brookstein 🙁

  25. Ariana December 12, 2010

    I can’t say much because I don’t really see xfactor but I saw his performance with Rihanna and I wasn’t impressed at all. He sounded really bad actually, idk, maybe he has had better days… oh well.

  26. randomperson December 12, 2010

    Wow yall are just crazy follow @miszteamwhateva I am for all teams tryna spread the word plz thank u!

  27. MissImpartial December 12, 2010

    @Mack

    Matt was a favourite to win since the beginning of the show. It has nothing to do with Rihanna as he was going to win anyway. As someone mentioned before he had the highest votes every week.

    He would have won even if he sang with no talent Kesha.

    So do not think Rihanna has anything to do with his win.

  28. Kyle December 12, 2010

    Use complaining are SAD why you going mad that they announced the winner, if you read about this site, it is a UK (BRITISH) Website which mainly broadcast american urban entertainment… but ‘That Grape Juice’ is based in the UK so he has every right to write a blog about XFactor! Stop Complaining!

    I wanted Rebbecca. I’m sure she’ll do something.

  30. WATEVA December 12, 2010

    B**** WHY THE HELL DO YOU KEEP COPY/PASTING THE “FOR THOSE THAT ARE UNFAMILIAR…” DISCLAIMER B*******!? EVEN IF WE WERE UNFAMILIAR YOU POST ABOUT THE S*** EVERY 15 SECONDS!

  31. ^^ Shut up December 12, 2010

    HE SHOULD REPORT IS YEAH, BUT NOT THAT EVERYBODY COULD SEE IT,

    CAUSE LIKE I SAID THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF

    THAT DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE SHOW FROM “The Pirate Bay” or other TORRENT SITES and SAM TOTALLY SPOILED IT FOR US

    F*** YOU SAM

  32. ^^ Shut up December 12, 2010

    The comment above is for KYLE

  33. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 13, 2010

    Does it really matter, we all know the real winner of the show is Cher Lloyd. I don’t like that girl but I bet a 1 year from now she is going to be bigger than Matt Cardle over there in the UK. Mark my words.

  34. WATEVA December 13, 2010

    and i love how you can’t even MUTE THESE TIRED ASS ADS ON THIS BOOTLEG ASS BLOG!

  35. Curtis December 13, 2010

    Rihanna rubbed off her outstanding f****** UK success on him! Congrats Matty boooii!!!!

  36. John December 13, 2010

    Absolutely devastated rebecca did not win! she was gorgeous and had an amazing voice, i predict big things from whereas matt on the other hand, i can see him becoming easily forgettable, the same as his performances the last couple of weeks, very half hearted and boring! the wrong winner was chose the second time on a run for the x factor. pathetic, i am so disappointed.

  37. MUSIC LOVER December 13, 2010

    X-Factor is amazing and this is coming from a person from the U.S.

    F*** I can’t believe the winner was posted, I was going to wait and see. I’m glad Matt won. He is a real singer, although I know Rebecca will do amazing things as well.

  38. sierra December 13, 2010

    i do think rihanna helped matt win. he sounded TERRIBLE in the duet! but after the show ended 5 of rihannas songs all shot up to the top 25 on UK itunes, she has SO much power in britain! none of christinas songs broke the top 50

    f*** that whiny ass b****. Rebecca deserved it. Her “Sweet Dreams” performance was flawless. Best performance of the night. whatever. he’s going to be the taylor hicks/david cook of the x-factor. a big motherfuckin flop.

  41. ERIC December 13, 2010

    HE’S TALENTED! DID NOT DESERVE TO WIN AS MUCH AS REBECCA… BUT AT LEAST SHE WON’T BE A PART OF SYMON’S FLOP RECORD LABEL. THE PROBLEM IS THAT HIS LASTEST PERFORMANCES HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT OFF COMPARED TO THE FIRST ONES, I THOUGHT THE FINAL TWO WOULD BE REBECCA AND ONE DIRECTION I THINK THOSE TWO ACTS AND CHER WOULD BE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL AFTER THIS, MATT AIN’T GOT A CHANCE IF HE DOESN’T GET A GOOD PRODUCTION TEAM.

  42. lindsey December 13, 2010

    i think you deserved to win well done to you great singer

  43. LondonDiva December 13, 2010

    There are some DAMN FOOLS on here bitching about Sam announcing the winner. EVERY SATURDAY within minutes of the performances airing SAM HAS POSTED the performances FROM WEEK 1.

    If you’re so into watching the show, then you’d KNOW when it airs. Do like I do when I don’t want spoilers. DON’T COME ONTO THE INTERNET, STAY OFF FACEBOOK AND STAY OFF TWITTER. How hard is that to understand? No… instead you come straight to the UK based site announcing the winner of a UK show, which gets TALKED ABOUT EVERY F****** WEEK.

    So you want the whole of the UK to keep quiet for a few of those who want to download it on torrents.

    F*** off!!! Imbeciles.

  44. LondonDiva December 13, 2010

    Rihanna did NOT help Matt win. The results were given on Xtra Factor and for every week except the first week he had the highest amount of votes. Mary had the highest in week one. Whoever was going to vote for Mat was going to vote for Matt whether he duetted with Rihanna or Miss Piggy. He was the bookies favourite from Week 1 through the end and consistently the viewers favourite throughout the entire competition.
