Best X-Factor U.S.A. Contestants

The X-Factor U.S.A. had lots of incredible singers...which one's best? It's hard, but somebody's gotta win..

The Top Ten

1 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony is an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

They're awesome. From underdogs to the publicity, fanbase and awesome opportunities they have earned. These well rounded full of life girls have shown nothing but drive and true talent! They're so down to earth and genuine. I truly love each and every one of them.

They have come so far, even though they didn't win the contest. They are born superstars. The fact that they have more than 7 tours and 10 awards already even though they only have EP. What more if they already release their first debut album this year (2014). THIS GIRLS Are So UNSTOPPABLE! They are so genuine they even call their fans as their friends... I hope they will never change...

Cool girl group that had some pretty good performances on the show - survivorfan989

Vocals are just amazing and like the fact that one of the member is an islander

By far the strongest vocalist to ever appear on the X Factor. Hands down. Tate can't touch her with a 10 foot pole. If the judging and voting was fair, and not extremely country-biased, then Carly would need her own competition for anyone else to stand a chance.

This little girl will be a MEGA star one day, she is one of the best vocalists I have ever heard, her performances on x-factor gave me goosebumps

Her cover of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" gives me chills... SO IMPRESSIVE

I am sure she will became a legend once - wait for it!

There not like others that just copy the same song of a singer on stage like parrot. there unique plus always bring some thing new to the stage and make the song for themselves. I can't wait till they release their own album.

They are unique and truly artists! Nothing contrived or fake about them. Plus their voices are great together and they sound amazing!

I still keep listening to her version of Feeling Good because it's so damn amazing. Remember the high note? It proves how amazing is her skills of singing.

She was so lucky that Simon saved her. Her vocals are amazing and beautiful

Such a fabulous person. Still wondering how he only got third! It was evident that he was well loved on the X Factor. Though he may not have seemed perfect his heart was totally in the right place. I don't think we've heard the last of him!

I cannot explain how inspired I am by his songs, his songwriting is part of the reason why he should have won. He undoubtedly deserved 1st place on the X Factor, and sure deserves #1 on this list.

He's the most inspirational person who has ever set foot on the X-Factor stage. He's also one of the most talented. With his charisma, talent, and background, he is the best X-Factor contestant.

By far the best contestant in the shows history! I love everything he's done such a unique talent and voice. LL

Here voice has gotten so much better in the two years since she was on x factor, and she is such a likeable person. She easily has the most potential of all of these people to make a hit album.

She can and has inspired so many girls. It's a shame the public pushed her away. She still posts videos on YouTube though and I believe is moving to CA. Can't wait to hear more from this girly!

Her voice is distinctive, and at such a young age, has the voice, look, and personality to be successful

She seems to be consistently working in the business, she is multi-talented with an outstanding personality, her secret weapon. Others can sing better but she is not one-dimensional.

She's such a sweetie.. Her voice is so great even though she's so little...
