X Factor Where Are They Now Thursday 11th September 2014

Let me take you back in time to 2009 That was the year FlashBitch’s favourite act Joe McElderry won reality TV betting fave X Factor It was also the year there was a huge social media campaign to oust Cowell s latest protégée from the top of the charts and it worked

Music lovers across the country had to listen to the wonderfully Christmassy Killing In the Name by heavy rock outfit Rage Against The Machine There were smug grins and handclaps all round between anyone who had a thorn in their side over Cowell s domination of the Christmas charts And that was a lot of people.

This didn’t bode well for poor Joe, so he changed his tact and became the winner of Pop Star To Opera Star and has spent his last few years appearing in a variety of West End productions.

2010 was winner Matt Cardle’s turn for a taste of fame, but it was short lived with SYCO due to him being a little sneery about the pop label and was swiftly dropped soon after he started. Matt went on to release a solo album that reached number eight in the charts and released his second album Porcelain last October.

2011 saw X Factor betting favourites Little Mix storm the show to win first place. Most X Factor betting fans have now heard of Little Mix and they continue to release successful albums and tour both in the UK and internationally.

2012 saw James Arthur win and his claim to fame is also to have the biggest selling X Factor single. Then he spoilt everything by making a racist remark on Twitter, for which he had to publicly apologise and just this week he played to the crowd at Market Rasen racecourse. Quite tellingly the crowd was smaller than when Wet Wet Wet played a few weeks before..
