Last night decided everything as the boy band and the girl band went head to head in the final! Singing three songs each, both bands took to the stage at the arena, one last time to fight for the winner’s title. But which group took the crown home with a record contract? We reveal it all!
‘Real Like You’ are the winners!
A week ago, this girl band didn’t even exist and now they’ve landed themselves a record deal! The recently formed girl band were truly sensational last night, proving they really do, have the X Factor! Their winner’s song ‘Be Like Them’ was an instant hit with the judges, after it was revealed it had been written by band member, Kellimarie, who’s clearly the superstar of the whole show. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t tear up a little bit after this performance…
Real Like You got 55% of the overall vote last night meaning they were by far the favourites of the night amongst viewers.
Is there a future for runners-up ‘Unwritten Rule’?
There’s still hope for boyband, Unwritten Rule. Band member, Reece even mentioned that not all the biggest bands that come out the show, actually win it. Throughout the show, Simon commented on how both bands did not give perfect performances, but we expect that’ll change over time! Here’s what fans had to say about last night’s show.
Are ‘Real Like You’ worthy contenders to face Fifth Harmony? Let us know!
Viewers left outraged at inappropriate clothing worn during final
Runners up, Unwritten Rules received a substantial amount of backlash last night after one of the band members was seen wearing a hoodie with the word “Sh**” labelled across it. Viewers at home responded to the outfit choices by reminding the show online that it’s a family show. Is this an overreaction or should outfits worn on the show be 100% family friendly?
Last year’s winner, Dalton returned!
Last year’s winner, Dalton Harris made a stunning comeback to the show with his new single, ‘Cry’. Dalton’s stunning vocals just keep getting better and better and we can’t get enough of it. Dalton, any chance you’d fancy auditioning again next year? Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell expressed their admiration for Dalton’s talent after the performance and their love for his new song.
