It’s over. It’s finally over. We have a winner, Matt Cardle.
It comes as no surprise really. The bookies have been claiming for ages that he’d take the crown and he has. But what a song to choose for an X Factor release! Biffy Clyro. That’s not the usual ballad rubbish that comes from the show.
Matt has a strong voice and he sings with such passion. I remember seeing him singing The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face) at bootcamp and being blown away. He’s wanted this for such a long time and I’m glad he finally has what he’s always wanted.
Although the winner usually disappears from the face of the earth within a few months, I hope it’s different this time. This time there’s true talent and someone that really deserves success. Let’s hope that with When We Collide being released as his debut, Matt Cardle goes a long way.
Just incase you missed it, here’s the moment when they announced his name and he performed When We Collide for the second time.
