Joe McElderry is winner of the X Factor




HOT favourite Joe McElderry was celebrating today after winning the coveted X Factor title and a life-changing record contract.

The 18-year-old student from South Shields beat Olly Murs in the public vote.

Joe beat 200,000 applicants to The X Factor and more than 10 million public votes were cast.

Following his win he hugged his mentor, fellow Geordie Cheryl Cole, and said: I cant actually speak and I just want to say thank you to Cheryl, shes been an amazing mentor.

He also thanked the other judges and everyone who voted for him.

Cheryl told him: I feel over the moon, Im absolutely delighted. The right person won. Im so proud of you. The North East are going to be going mad.

McElderrys single The Climb was available for download from midnight last night and will be in the shops on Wednesday.

Simon Cowell told Joe he was gutted for Olly but thrilled for you because you're brilliant.

It was Cheryls second victory in a row after mentoring winner Alexandra Burke in last years competition.

Bookmakers said Joe was now the red-hot favourite to secure Christmas number one with Ladbrokes cutting his odds of landing the top spot to 1/8.

In a sign of the shows ability to draw in the world's top stars, Sir Paul McCartney appeared on the final show singing Drive My Car with Joe, Olly and this year's other 10 X Factor finalists.

Asked for his views on the final pair, Sir Paul said: I think theyre both good, you know, one of thems going to win.

Speaking after the show Joe told ITV2s Xtra Factor: I couldnt believe it. I nearly collapsed on stage. Its amazing.

I feel like Im floating, just floating around, and I just feel like jelly.

There was a bit of pressure but I just thought, I made it to the final, so I thought I would just go for it and give it my best shot.

Ive had the best experience of my life.

Olly said: Ive had a great time and really enjoyed it, regardless of what happened.

I came out there fighting, did the best I could. The best guy won and Joe deserves it.

A National Grid spokeswoman said there was a surge in demand equivalent to more than 250,000 people switching on their kettles 750 megawatts or the output of a medium-sized power station after the final finished.

You mean, hes going to have around 2-3 singles, maybe 2 albums if hes lucky and then hell be forgotten about???

Michelle McManus anyone?
All those other faggots that no-one remembers because they are all over produced, none natural talent who 9/10 probably couldnt even play an instrument?

Dont make me laugh. X factor needs to be capped, like it did god knows how many years ago!!

why is it that whenever we see winners of one of these things they all have extremely perfect teeth, lips the size of Ford Transits and a face that looks like it's been inflated with helium.

Rage against the machine for Xmas...Kick in the bollox for smug git Cowell!! (and i will gift wrap it for him!!!)

These so called "tallent" shows shud be scrapped, also get rid of "reality" shows, not VERY real to me!!
Surviving in the jungle, not realy when you got a big backup crew, medics, smarmy git presenters and "everyday" survival situations (find a key in rotten fish... DUH!!!) that have nowt to do with jungle survival!
Big Brother...get real, (oh, your trying to!!) How can you honestly say that in real life, you could REALY put such people into one house and not have a murder!!! NOT REAL!!
AND dont even get me started on "Come Dancing On Bloody Ice!!", (I know its not called that, but joins another 2 hated together!!) with that bloody geriatric, unfunny, waste of oxygen, wig wearing, cue card reading, irritating Bruce Forsyth!!! Time to get shut of the lot of them!!! somad
Also they interupt the womans housework!!!

Just for people uninformed...

Rage against the Machine ARE ON Simon Cowelss Record Label smack


So, instead of downloading a talentless idiot, or even some stupid repetitive American metal rap drivel (Ive heard both played WAY too many times past 3 days, both as equally bad as each other) which results in Simon Cowell getting mega rich, and doing ANOTHER season of XFactor....



VOTE FOR THE MUPPETS - BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY!!!!!!!!!

RATM... wasnt "Killing In The Name Of" out years ago??

Why are people suddenly interested in them lol... best songs they did was Renegades Of Funk back and How I Could Just Kill A Man in 2001 or summit. Oh and the Triple H tune they did (the one that said Yo Jimmy, hit me with that Triple H).

When I used to love them, everyone said they were shit, what's changed?

confused

How will that change things?

People who vote for Dingleberry are people who watch XFactor and have no life...

People who vote for Rage are these Studenty/Teenage Fags who swear by facebook and Radio1. Its one of those things so that in years to come..they can say, yeah. I voted for that, that makes me cool..because I defied the system!

What they dont realise, is that the charts has been decided by 12 year old girls for number of years, and that by downloading rage against (Which matty said, killing in the name of has been around for years :S) Is nt proving anything other than that they are sheep as well.

Why not just download neither?

That swearing outburst will just make it more taboo to like them!!
