The Top Ten

Jeff Gutt
I started watching this season of X Factor after flipping through channels one night. I just happened to stop right when he was being introduced for the four chair challenge. I immediately fell in love with his voice. I became mesmerized by it, to say the least. I couldn't count the times that I listened to his performances over and over again. How he has not been discovered until now is a mystery. He has so much talent. And his stage presence is so strong. It got stronger and stronger with each of his performances. It was like he was letting us in a little more each time. You could definitely tell Talon was super proud of his daddy. Man he is one adorable little boy! I can't wait until Jeff starts touring. I will definitely be there. Hopefully front row. I don't care what I have to pay. It'll be well worth it to experience such amazing talent in person. Good luck Jeff. We love you!
There are rarely entertainers anymore that can catch my attention, all the same old, same old. Then there is JEFF GUTT, HOLY LOVE OF JESUS, WHERE HAS HE BEEN HIDING? It didn't matter what he sang, "This MAN'S on Fire". It is an absolute total tragedy that XFactor doesn't attract a Rock audience because they missed some totally BRILLIANT performances. He out shined every performer including the guest performers. I will buy whatever he produces and will attend any concert within a days flight. He totally KILLED every performance.
Jeff Gutt is not only the best X-Factor contestant, but one of the best singers of all time. He is legendary--as iconic as Elvis. What makes Jeff the #1 X-Factor is also not only is incredible voice, its his HUGE heart and the fact that he is such a humble, hard-working performer. He has the whole package and I'll support him forever. Much love to you, Jeff Gutt! ❤
[Newest]Jeff will always be #1.

2Fatin Shidqia
The 16 year-old woman but has a unique voice and character, his voice is the reincarnation of the legendary singer Brenda Lee, who owned Fatin sound only once in 100 years
Her voices is amazing.
I love fatin very much, she got natural talent, n everything just begin for her, but she can do it like popular singer
I wish fatin to be top consestan in X factor..
Fatin g luck fo. R you, keep calm.. Humble n do the best in everything
You are incredible

God bless you Amin
[Newest]I love her voice..

3One Direction
One Direction have come the furthest out of all the x-factor contestants. When they were on the show they always delivered an amazing performance, and never let anyone down. They definitely should have won in my opinion. They have a massive fan base and some amazing songs. They are so lovely to their fans and everyone, even the haters. I love them with all my heart and always will. Vote 1D!
FIT, oh my days, I actually love harry styles so much! I just want to cuddle him.
They are the best ever! I fell in love with them. I live in very far away country and for them to be known here is just amazing and I just have to say I LOVE ZAYN MALIK, LOUIS TOMLINSON, HARRY STYLES, NIALL HORAN, AND LIAM PAYNE.
[Newest]They should be first I mean who else didn't win the X-factor and got so famous from Directioners, their tours sell out in minutes, platinum album, awards, number one singles. I mean no British group has gotten this much success since the Beatles. I mean for these reasons they should be number one and little mix number two

4Leona Lewis
Leona has the perfect voice, so soft and emotional. She is by far the best. She is better than any other X FACTOR contestant and definitely better than ONE DIRECTION. At least she doesn't only have good looks, but also good voice and personality!
No one else come close to her in terms of singing prowess and execution. The ability of a person to communicate with the audience and giving meaningful rhythm to the songs I think Leona has possessed.
Leona lewis was full on perfect each time she performed, even simon loved her! And all the judges kept rooting for her
[Newest]Her version of Run brought tears to my eyes. Her voice is amazing.

5Cher Lloyd
She's beautiful and very versatile. She's had to deal with more hate than any X Factor contestant in history, ^^still she rises above with a number one debut single. Amazing. Her unconventional style of rapping ^^singing will make her more famous in the US than any other X factor contestant.
One Direction was another man's creation. Cher Lloyd there is no imitation. You don't have to win a contest to be the overall winner and that's where Cher Lloyd is the champion. We ain't talking about one country we're yelling it out world wide. Cher Lloyd better known worldwide compared to any other contestant from the X-factor.
She's AMAZING! She can rap, and has a very unique singing voice. I like how all of her songs aren't focussed on love (ex: Oath is about friendship etc. ) and her songs are all ver catchy, but not repetitive or boring like every other pop song out there. I'm surprised she's not more popular than she is now!
[Newest]I just love her so much

6James Arthur
His voice has so much emotion to it and makes me want to listen to his music all the time because it has a ring which makes it addictive and beautiful. He really deserved to win.
James' voice is exceptional, he blends emotion with exquisite advanced technicality which is very tough to do, he also has adequete vocals and a tremendous guitar attribute.
Amazing Great, I Voted for him at the final, and he won
I Think he has amazing talent, and it shows the x factor can find talent
[Newest]He has something only rare in the world have. His own style.

7Little Mix
Of course Little Mix are the best, That's why Tulisa told everyone that it would be YOUR FAULT if they didn't vote for them. And even David Walliams & Simon Cowell kept telling everyone to make sure they won.
It doesn't even matter that they were so close to the bottom of the votes & no one liked them at the start cause they won, or that the show covered for them forgetting the words, because they are the best. They didn't even need as much promotion to become famous in the US as One Direction because Little Mix are better. To prove it One Direction are always telling their fans to buy Little Mix's music.
Little Mix may not be as famous as One Direction, but they are pretty damn close. Their songs have meaning, they put effort into their performances and music. They don't use auto tune, and sound just as good in the studio as they do live. Maybe even better! Jesy has such a soulful voice, and can go really low, can beatbox, and once she did a great high note. Leigh-Anne has a very graceful voice, she can rap, can go low and high, and has a great sound for their R&B songs. Perrie has an amazing vocal range, her high notes leave me with chills, she has a low soulful voice, basically a younger Christina Aguilera. Jade has an amazing voice all around. She can do so much with it, she can do the low notes, high notes (helps Perrie out, since Perrie had her tonsils removed, and can't hit them the way she used to). In each song, you can clearly tell who is singing. Unlike a few other groups. Not going to point them out on their own, but I feel that way about One Direction. I can hardly ever tell who is singing. The only one who stands out to me is Louis and Niall, because their voices are higher pitched, yet sound different.
Little Mix deserve to be on top of the world! They should have dominated a year ago! They have amazing vocals, tight harmonies, good dancers, funny and cute personalities, a real and sisterlike bond. They're real, and not manufactured like other artists out there.
Keep rocking Little Mix! Mixer forever!
If you think about it, Little Mix have their own clothing range and have millions of screaming fans, as well as being the first ever group to win the X Factor. Myself, I am a major Little Mix fan and in my opinion, they should at least be in the top three. Rhydian hasn't many fans I know of, same with singles, he is not really that popular.
[Newest]They are amazing, their voices are amazing, their looks are amazing, enough said

8Carly Rose Sonenclar
How the heck is she down here? She has an amazing voice at 13! She is better than a lot of adult singers who are already signed. She has great stage presence, is very comfortable on stage, and is humble. She isn't conceited like some of the contestants I have seen, and she isn't annoying. She is so sweet. Her voice is big and powerful. Think of how amazing she'll be when she's 20 years of age!


How is she not first? She's an amazing vocalist, with a HUGE voice that fills up the whole theatre. I think she definitely should have won.
As usual another worthless X factor list. Carly should be at the top of the list but since there are really no rules ( Like X Factor) I am not going to waste my time voting over and over again on this one.
[Newest]Why she is not in the top she is the best one I've seen so far she's amazing I admire her, she sings way better than artists who is going with the name "singer" when they cannot

9Olly Murs
Olly murs is the most successful out there. He seems such a nice guy and performed at many concerts which loads of people love going too. He's had the most songs which at least all of them have made it in the top 40. Unlike one direction and jls which are loved by kids and teens but Olly is loved by so many different age ranges like as well as kid there's adults and younger adults around his age who love him. Me and my family are always singing his wonderful songs.


How is Olly Murs 8!? And Rhydian is 1st! This is not right. Olly Murs is one of the most successful X Factor contestants of all time! Most of the people above him have not done much since the X Factor and Olly has done so much! How can you not love the cheeky chappy with the amazing talent?!
Olly Murs is so awesome. He may not have won x factor but he is a top star in the music business. Anyway, listening to his performances he should have won.
[Newest]Only murs is awesome. His songs r awesome. His voice is awesome. That is all I can really say. So just vote

10Dami Im
Dami will no doubt change the landscape of the global Music Industry, it is only time until her Masterful musical genius will be heard all around the world. I have never heard such a voice that is so addictive & angelic, yet has such powerful notes & dynamic range she is the most versatile, all round singer, musician & artist I have ever witnessed over four decades. Not surprising she can sing any genre, having started playing piano at age 5, & by aged 10 was already wowing audiences playing like a concert pianist. By the time she started high school, Dami was winning National piano and music awards and won several school awards. She then advanced to University where she studied Music and not only passed with "First Class Honours", each year she would receive the University's Deans award for Music & artistic brilliance. She further advanced her studies with a "Master's" in contemporary vocals. It is no surprise with all her musical knowledge, technical acumen and the most amazing vocals ever heard, Dami will soon be amazing the global community……
PS: Dami also has a heart of Gold...
Dami is the most deserving winner of any talent show. No one before her ever had standing ovation at every performance, even the judges kept singing her praises and even once gave her a standing ovation on their desk! Dami has the ability to perform in any genre, be it classical, disco, rock, jazz or pop. She sang every song as well or better than the original artist. She sings from a loved filled hear and her beautiful voice reaches you from the inside. Her fans span all ages and respond to her warm and loving personality. Dami is a beautiful soul with an angelic voice and is destined for international stardom with her name among the greatest like Whitney Huston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, etc. Dami is a talented singer/songwriter and we are eagerly waiting for her next album.
Dami is the most musically talented singer that has come out of X Factor and dare I say even more talented than any global superstar. She started learning to play piano at the age of 5 and by the age of 10 she could perform 'Etube' by liszt. She has won numerous competition as a pianist and she is also violinist. At the age of 11 she began studying at the Young Conservatorium of music program at University. She graduated from University with first class honours in Bachelor of music and further her study by getting a Masters of Arts Degree in Comtempory Voice... Dami did not know most the songs she perform on X Factor.. She had to learn the nuances of each song and genre in a week. Not only did she learn it, she nail it with standing ovation (even judges standing on the desk ovation) week after week. Dami is the most deserving of this number 1 spot on musical talent alone.. I could go on forever talking about this angel but I like to conclude how inspiring she is to all her fans (Dami Army). Even before her fame on X factor she was an ambassador for 'Compassion' which is an organisation helping less fortunate kids around the world. Dami sponsors 3 kids from non develop countries... Global SuperStar.
[Newest]I came late to X Factor last year. Someone told me that I have to see this girl Dami I'm on the show. By chance, I watched Dami as she sang "Purple Rain". When she exploded into the second verse, I remember sitting up in amazement and I knew that she was the one I'd been waiting for all these years. Afterwards, back stage, the camera turned to Dami and she said, "I don't know what just happened out there". We all now know it was Dami's exceptional talent being discovered. Dami and her "awesome singing"!

Dami should believe what she thinks is the right way to go, she has the musical qualifications and the intellect. She will adapt and evolve as her career as a music artist grows. Her success makes us happy.

I came across your X-Factor journey by chance and I am so glad I did. I have lost count the number of times I have watched the videos of Dami. She is a truly rare and special woman and the world is lucky to have you.

So happy that she "took a chance" and "found who she was born to be" - so grateful that we found her...

The Contenders

11Janet Devlin
Janet has such a unique voice and unlike so many other contestants, she has a real passion for music. She writes her own music, plays the guitar and doesn't agree with the likes of auto tuning and voice altering. She didn't enter the XFactor for the fame and money, she has no interest in VIP treatment or free things, she entered the show for her love of music and would never let fame get to her head. What's really special about Janet is she doesn't realize how talented she is and I'm not sure she ever will, but with such a beautiful voice and kind nature, there's no doubt she will succeed in the music business and have a long and happy career as a musician. She's got extremely loyal fans behind her and I for one will always be supporting her.
Janet was by far the best contestant on the x factor. There are so many reasons for this. Janet consistently sang her heart out through each show even though she was getting abuse for being herself, then doing what people told her to do, then being herself again. She survived so much and stayed strong when most people would have buckled and given up. She constantly helped others in the house, and never had a bad thing to say about anyone, she was friends with all of the other contestants. Janet should win this because she inspired others to pursue their dreams, no matter how shy. Her voice is so natural and amazing, she doesn't like being face an doesn't agree with editing her voice with machines. She plays her own instruments, she is so grateful to her fans, she even went through security to meet a fan because she felt the need to thank him. She does everything for her devlinators, we love her loads.
Most genuine talent ever, amazing voice, amazing individually. She's the perfect role model to everyone, showing them being different isn't bad! PERFECT
[Newest]Janet Devlin stands for real quality music. A real musician's musician who with real artistic flair.

This the kinda band I read about in magazines glossy magazines these the only Guys I think lately in my dreams
11TH? Ehh there easily in the top 3... This makes no sense...
The boys are great singers and have some great songs!

13Alex & Sierra
Congratulations to the boring winner! They sucked. I give one vote for a celebration.
There so unique and one of a kind except the others who just copy S. One's song, these two bring there own style into the song and make it better like changing that toxic song that was far better than original version of it.
My favorites of any season...
[Newest]Glad they won. Jeff gutt sucked

14Alexandra Burke
I don't understand how Alexandra is so far down in this list. I can see why Rhydian is number one but Alexandra is clearly one of the most diverse, soulful, emotional and powerful singers to ever come out of X Factor. Added to the fact that she got rejected in 2005, but never gave up on her dreams and ended up winning the show three years later... She deserved it more than any other contestant, in my opinion.
I agree, Leona has made a huge impact in a few years and is an amazing singer, but Alexandra has the natural performer aspect of a singer that makes me think she will b around for a long time.
How is she only one place above the likes of Misha B laugh out loud Alexandra Burke has star quality and produced a few really good songs


15Ella Henderson
Ella Henderson is a great singer who sung the song ghost. You should vote for her. Honestly, believe me. She is great and should of got to the final.

Good Luck Ella.
She should of been in the final.
She is amazing! Her songs should be number 1 everywhere!


16Rebecca Ferguson
She is one of the greatest female singers ever. Certainly the best X Factor singer apart from maybe Rhydian. She is as good if not better than Rhydian she can sing anything. In my opinion she is up there with Freddie Mercury, Elvis and Meat Loaf as one of the greatest singers of all time as well as Rhydian of course. She is gonna be big and I hope so. She's a new Freddie Mercury or Meat Loaf and could be the biggest X Factor singer of all time. Hearing her for the first time is like hearing Elvis for the first time. Matt Cardle was good too but nothing compared to her. And the sad thing is her and Rhydian never won


Rebecca Ferguson is probably one of the best X factor contestants ever. she had a beautiful voice, she was so pretty and she seemed like a really nice person. I hope she does well in her career.
The best voice ever to have been on Xfactor - and a real human being with humility! From the moment she auditioned, you could tell she was a natural, and not just a wanna be Karaoke singer!

This si the first mixed group created by the judges, they have a girl that can rap, a guy that can dance and beatbox, and a girl that can Hit the high notes better than the others. They are a group full of power, energy and diversity.
They are fresh and brilliant and they sing to perfection and dance and have so much energy as if red bull would run througj their veins.
They are the very best group ever!

18Chris Rene
#1Fan here and Ima LoveLifeSouljah! Chris Rene's music, personality, aura, & just everything about him is magical! He is the nicest person and most non-judgmental person I have ever met! WHEN HE PERFORMED HIS ORIGINAL SONG ON THE XFACTOR USA SEASON 1 I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM AND WAS SO INSPIRED BE HIM JUST LIKE THE REST OF AMERICA... AND THR WORLD! Immediately The Renelians were born! I enjoy all of my Love Life Army Family as well as our General who created our big happy family! His music, style, and originality is like no other. I have never enjoyed so many songs... Original songs by an artist like I do with Chris Rene. He is just a special guy and I could go on & on... But the #1 spot here should surely go to Chris. His lyrics and music spread positivity and realism. Every song touches your heart and or soul... He is about LOVE... And LOVING LIFE AND EACH OTHER! CHRIS RENE HAS CAPTURED HEARTS AROUND THE WORLD WITH HIS AMAZING SOUND AND VOICE, & ALSO HIS STORY OF LOVE AND RECOVERY... ABOUT BELIEVING AND NEVER GIVING UP ON YOUR DREAMS IS JUST AWE INSPIRING. Christmas IS HIS BIRTHDAY... LET'S ALL VOTE FOR THIS AMAZING SANTA CRUZ NATIVE! #LoveLifeBaby! CHRIS makes everyone feel special and he really loves his fans! He comes from a great family... A musical family. Sister Gina Rene is also a singer songwriter, brother Mike an amazing drummer... Older brother I here is also involved and they have an amazing mother.. Joni Rene.. Mama Noni who is amazing herself... I am proud to be a number 1 FAN!
Chris Rene is the most humble guy ever, he's a great father, communicates well & a lot with his Renelians, not to mention he cares deeply about us, and he is just an all around great person. He helped me through the darkest time in my life & he's the only reason I'm still here today & stronger than I've ever been. He is the real deal, words cannot explain how much love I have for this man. He makes me happy just by being himself, while other celebrities these days are not being themselves and it's clear that they're not. Chris also puts a great show on stage, he's really entertaining & when he's up there, he's just pouring his heart out & you can tell that he LOVES what he does.
I love his music from the very first moment I listened and watched him on that stage in 2011. His warm and peaceful voice certainly spread positive vibes along with his beautiful original melody. I feel, still today after 2 years, that I'm so blessed to discover him every single day. His messages in his songs certainly delivered across the ocean to Japan, and I'm so sure that he's going to keep changing the world for the better with his music and love he puts in it:) Thank you so much! LoveLifeBaby!
[Newest]Chris Rene is amazing. He is one of the most talented musicians around. He is not only an amazing singer but a songwriter as well. Chris has remained humble during his crawl to fame always keeping in touch with his fans. Chris has also amassed a fan group which became a family following his example of loving life. Chris should be number one not only for his talent but for the man he is.

19Taylor Henderson
Taylor's acoustic guitar playing and rich voice have the ability to take you away from the here and now and transport you to a new place. A place where all the cares and worries of the world fade away, and you just want to stay there for hours. Not many musicians can evoke that kind of feeling. You can hear in his voice a true emotional outpouring and the joy of just doing something he loves. Fortunately for us he's dang good at it too! He has a unique, pure and versatile voice that is at the same time raw and polished. If he just played his guitar it would be amazing, but then he begins singing and WOW! A fresh new voice in this world of same old same old bubblegum pop out there today. And he seems to be a genuinely nice guy and good looking to boot. The world is his oyster and we are all anxiously waiting for more!
Taylor is the newest #1 charting Australian musician. His musical style is acoustic-indie-pop and his single "Borrow My Heart" went certified Platinum after only a few weeks on the airwaves in Australia. He has charmed Australian with his unique guitar style and voice. If you want to be wowed go pick up a copy of his self-titled album of many X Factor performed works including Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Here's to many more successes, Taylor, and a long prolific career ahead. Cheers M8!
As a child of the 70's I've never really gotten into the current music scene. I'm pretty much old school rock and roll. After seeing Taylor perform during his audition on X-Factor I became hooked on this talented young musician. There is so much power and passion in his music that you can't help but stop whatever you are doing and listen. He has become my constant companion on my 45 min drive to and from work. His music gets me pumped to face my 12 hour shift as an ICU nurse every morning, and chill out after a sometimes physically and emotionally exhausting day. His voice is mesmerizing to say the least. He could make it in any genre he chooses but I personally hope he sticks to the indie style with lots of acoustic guitar playing. I know there are bigger and better things in store for him and that he will continue to keep his fans clamoring for more!
[Newest]Taylor Henderson has a new album out, Burnt Letters. He's gone from strength to strength since X Factor. At last, his own album made up of his own songs and it's a beauty!

I love Fifth Harmony! Five girls, different backgrounds, thrown together in a group and seriously taking over as one of this generation's best girl groups! They have so many different flavors and it all works together!
I have loved them since day 1 and I am never leaving them


Fifth Harmony = Magic

22Misha B
A number of music articles have described Bryan as one of the more gifted singers to emerge from the The X Factor.

The Voice delivered one of the more 'memorable auditions the ITV1 show had ever seen'... 'with the ease and grace of a pro'.

BBC 1xtra describes her as a "break from the traditional X Factor contestant" and that Misha B could be noted for her "show-stopping performances".

The Daily Telegraph picked her first performance as one of the highlights of the series, saying she "oozed star quality from the start... Like a 21st century Grace Jones or an urban Lady Gaga, the teenager seemed like a proper pop star already. "
The Telegraph has noted that Bryan delivers "impressive soulful vocals and a quirky rapping style" to the tracks she has covered; often injecting well-known songs with a "fresh UK urban twist", this has been noted in her X Factor performances including Aretha Franklin's "Respect" and Adele's "Rolling in the Deep. "

FemaleFirst described Bryan as "a completely unique and diverse artist",

Bryan was nominated in the "Best Newcomer" category of the 2012 MOBO Awards, performing live at both the nomination and awards ceremonies.

VIVA Lifestyle Magazine described her performance as “A true entertainer... Her stage presence, confidence and ability are all top notch.

Paul Leake of stated that with each single release she delivers a "quality far above the norm for an X Factor alum. "
A truly versatile singer with awesome stage presence. She is capable of singing in any style from blues, funk and old soul to hard hitting rap, reggae fusion, r & b and beyond. She is equally very good live and acoustic as she is as a recording artist. Her covers are generally thought to be better than the original artists tracks. A genuinely positive, creative and giving person who actively supports several good causes.

23Jennel Garcia
She is so cool and she rocks it well your tone and style is unique

24Union J
Great first album, hard working lads, who put on a class show on tour. Could become the next big thing.

25Samantha Jade
Sami can sing anything at zero notice to perfection! She is also a talented writer and has amazing ability to capture the audience right from the get-go. Humble and endearing in every interview.

26Jai Waetford
Jai is amazing and the most inspirational person ever! He has worked so hard to get to where he is and deserves to be number 1! He my idol and he means everything to me! He is a god, his singing is the most amazing thing ever I could listen to it my whole life! I love him so much! Please come to Tasmania Jai! X
Jai is amazing okay. Only 14, very cute, he's funny and loves his fans! Voice of an angel, watch him on youtube and you'll fall in love.
He's only 14 and he made it to the grand final. He has and amazing voice that gives me goosebumps! He's AMAZING!
[Newest]You will get far Jai your amazing don't let anyone tell you different x

27Ruth Lorenzo
Easily the best female contestant the X Factor has ever featured. Ruth is RAW POWER. Every single one of her performances are full of passion, emotion and intensity. She sings with her heart and her voice is absolutely explosive. It outclasses almost every other female contestant on any X Factor series, ever. Even now, I repeatedly watch her performances on YouTube, especially Always, Purple Rain and Love Ain't Here Anymore. This woman is beyond world class and she proved that yet again at Eurovision, where she was easily the best singer of the 26 performing.
Probably the best female contestant or even the best the X Factor has ever had! I think she should have been in the final two and not have left because of the prejudice that was against her. She was one of the few who really had the X Factor in the 7 seasons.
Perhaps one of the greatest X Factor contestants to have ever set foot on the stage. She isn't even British either. Amazing!

28Emblem 3
This boyband got talent similar to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sublime and is definitely the best contestant ever to come to X-Factor audition. They have great looks but still a very awesome music.
At the first time, I didn't belive in their talents. I tought they were just pretty faces, but when time pass I starterd to see how amazing they are and hhow they love each other and sing with each other and how anwsome their voces are together. I belive in they now, I am a big fan now. I can't wait to see they live.

29Matt Cardle
In a poll of top X factor contestants Matt Cardle has to be at the top. Coming top every week apart from the first, which no one else has ever done, Matt went on to win the most watched final the show has ever had. He writes all his own songs, plays most of the instruments and produces his records which none of the other X Factor contestants do. His vocal range is incomparable and he leaves audiences mesmerised with his live performances. No auto tune or lip sync required.
Winner of the most watched series of X Factor ever, heading the public vote every week apart from the first, Matt Cardle is a true musical genius. About to release his 3rd self penned album Matt writes, sings, plays most instruments and produces his own music, how many other X Factor contestants do that? He has to be heard live, his voice is incredible. Headline act at London Acoustic Guitar Show, Matt is the real deal, vocally flawless and musically in a league of his own.
He received the most votes every single week in the competition apart from week one, and then won in the final. How many other contestants can claim that feat? He has the most beautiful and expressive male voice currently in the music business. Matt should be right at the top of this list.

30Stacey Solomon
Your the best singer ever
The woman made the Iceland advert #betterthankerry.

31Bella Ferraro
Bella has captured my heart when she sang Don't dream it's over. Her version of it was perfection, even withe the nervous pauses. After that, she showed us how beautiful songs can be - if only SHE was the one to sing them! Just think of Brother, WMYB (amazing arrangement, and her own! ), 99 balloons, Sweet disposition, and not to mention Skinny love - THAT is the way that song should be sang. Bella's time will come, she is only 19 and is looking for her style and her "right" writing people. Her singing is so captivating, so rich and so rarely heard these days, and she gets into the "character" of every song she sings. She is not the "diva" style with somewhat boring long cascading notes and lots of screaming, but she's definitely not your everyday "flat" singer. She adds so many notes to just a single note, reminds me of some European folk style music where singers are on full show for their ability to "twist" notes and give us that omph and life - not many modern singers do this, in fact Bella is the first one as far as I am aware. She is not yet too popular but her time will come when she matures a little and finds her music style.
Sweetest voice and perfect. Skinny love just blew me away.

32Jamie Archer

33Aiden Grimshaw
He's performance of Mad World was the best thing I've ever seen on the x factor. Can't believe he got kicked out so early. Screw x factor. Aiden Grimshaw is the bomb ;) (don't worry, that was deliberate)
Hands down, he is by far the best x factor contestant. The sad part is that he didn't get very far in the competition. Nonetheless, he is awesome. Check out 'Is this Love' if you still don't believe me..

34Ellona Santiago
She has the power voice and great moves at the same time. She is the best performer that X factor ever got.
Amazing performer, no one could sing and dance like her. It was magical.
She's a real diva.

35Tamera Foster

36Rough Copy
The day after Rough Copy went off the show, I didn't feel like singing


They should have been in the final, better than luke
So great that they should make a single


37Josh Krajcik
Came on the show with absolutely justified belief that he was the best - and I think that counted against him in the final. The American public decided Melany Amaro who they had already kicked off the show once should be he winner. The public don't always get it right.
One of the best to ever be on this competition, hands down!
After seeing Josh Krajck live on 2 occasions and wanting more, this guy has more talent than most contestants. Not only is he a great blues, soul singer he plays muliple instruments and is a great song writer. Why is he so low on the list. I saw him on XFactor and never got the idea that he thought he was better than anyone else. You're right, the public got it wrong.

The best x factor ph group.

43Shayne Ward
He has unique voice and he is hot! Let's continue to support him! Keep it up, Shayne!
Strongest male vocalist ever and with the best range. Shabbily treated by Cowell

44Iulian Vasile

45Reece Mastin
Rockstar, awesome voice, some of the best perfomances I've seen since Adam Lambert
He's awesome! One of the best artists to come out of Xfactor!

46Souli Roots

47Same Difference

48Chris Maloney
AN absolutely great voice...hope he moves on to great success!
Great voice, great talent and should have less criticism


49Sophie Habibis
Sophie is the best voice that's ever entered the X Factor. She would've won easily if the producer's had given her more air time in her auditions, and if they hadn't given her such a crap mentor. She will make it big one day!
Sophie may have only come tenth on the X Factor but she will definitely make it big in the music industry. Hope she gets a recording contract.

50David Correy
David Correy though sent home the first live show has done so much since XFactor! Much more then most who went further & even won! Under his independent label, UrbanRock Records, he has signed a contract with Coca Cola & recorded the anthem for the 2014 WorldCup, The World Is Ours, which he will perform at the start of the cup in Brazil. He has recorded several versions of the song with several artists such as Wisin & Paty Cantu. Recently he has teamed up with Wyclef Jean, Rock Mafia & Tokio Hotel to record "I Am" which will be heard on the NFL's Characters Unite campaign against Bullying & Discrimination.. Also this song can be heard on the FIFA14 soundtrack. His song "One More Chance" was featured in an AT&T commercial for "Black History Month" which aired on BET. In addition he is always releasing new music & his new EP will he released very soon. While he is one of the hardest workers out there.. He is also a very kind hearted & friendly guy. Fun & outgoing, I've had the opportunity to meet thus great guy & his team, which are lifelong friends he considers family, many times. I support him 150% for the artist & person he is! His Dreamers aren't fans to him.. They are supporters.. They are family! Love this man so much more then words can describe!
I know several who are deserving, but there is no doubt that David is the best of these singers, the work carried out starting from The x-factor 2012 is unquestionable, travel and projects undertaken during that year, was fantastic, off the partnership with coca-Cola campaign for the world Cup here in Brazil, it is spectacular to be among 16 contestants still have left him without the least have the opportunity to be where he deserved, among the finalists and one champion nor was this issue that with David Correy in this accession as him or see if you want to hear about, the wonderful music out of it # # ShowMe OneMoreChange Dreamin # # # Frozen I'llBeThere among other
Is perfect, love love love ♥

51Marcus Collins
He doesn't have the best voice but he definitely has the x-factor, if you know what I mean, he has his own unique style and has stayed true to throughout his x-factor journey
I adore this mans voice. The little soul man from Liverpool! Easily the best male contestant ever - He is a born performer and entertainer.

53Joe McElderry
Joe is an unpretentious but incredibly talented singer who can sing anything and can move you to tears or have you dancing in the street! He has a heart of gold, He can be so much fun, and he has an amazing sense of humor, too! I shopped all the world over listening to anybody and everybody before ( in my opinion) I discovered the best singer around. Beware, he is very addictive!
Wonderful personality, divine voice! Best stage performer by far! Has worked his way into many hearts in last 4 years by lots of hard work and dedication to his chosen profession.he will be around long after others stars have waned.
Joe McElderry is a wonderfully talented singer. His voice has an incredible range and he performs a delightful variety of music genre. Just amazing on stage, fantastic performing live, and he really thrives there

54Melanie McCabe

55Jiordan Tolli
Jiordan's voice is mesmerising. Her version of Stay is so much better than the original, she made it classy with her crystal-like voice. She doesn't have the biggest range, but it is more than compensated for with her unique voice.
Jiordan's voice is absolutely beautiful, she is amazing & did a great job on the X factor. She is so inpirational, I look up to her a lot. I hope to one day meet her, she is my idol xoxo

56Jillian Jensen

57The Collective
The boys are so down to Earth and they really care about their fans, the music they make is perfection and they put so much hard work in for their collectors.
I Love The Collective, is the best boyband from x-Factor!

62Abi Alton
She is a unique performer and should be No. 1

63Niki Evans

64Restless Road
They are the perfect group! A country point of view from 1D

65Laura White


So talented, should of won. She was so unique and should not have been eliminated form the compitition. I personally think she could have made it in the industry. What a waste! From Jolene in Peterborough.

66Willie Jones

67Diamond White

68Nikkita Angus

His flow is insane, give him a couple more years and he will be bigger than Jay-Z

70Luke Friend
He's so original, Nice to see he hasn't been manufactured like most contestants from the X Factor

Best contestant the programne have ever had

76Altiyan Childs
A massively talented Australian who deserves to succeed. Has another single out called Celebrity, available on ITunes and Google Play. definitely my favourite Singer/writer EVER!
I am a talent show junkie... Love wtching them, but Altiyan is the best I have ever seen. His powerful flawless performances demolished the competition, and his new music is brilliant. His new single "Celebrity" is a cheeky and clever dig at "fame" showing what a superb songwriter he is.
Altiyan is the best singer song writer and performer that's ever been on x factor.
[Newest]Captures your attention every time he sings - a talented performer/songwriter/singer.

77Jacqui Newland

78Agus Hafiluddin

79Kerrianne Covell
Kerrianne was a great singer in the competition she should have been in the top 3 instead of CHLOE JASMINE


A voice to die for

80Fleur East

81Kye Sones

82KZ Tandingan
She has a very clean voice calasthenics.. She's the best.. She can make the songs her own..

She had the best voice of all the contestants. But she got probably the poorest song choices from her mentor thus resulting in her early elimination.
