Joe McElderry Wins X Factor
Over ten million votes were cast in the final, which saw McElderry win over the public with his performances of ‘Don’t Stop Believin” and the winner’s song ‘The Climb’.
On hearing the news, McElderry screamed, hugged his mentor Cheryl Cole and said: “I can’t believe it – thank you so much everyone.”
Runner-up Olly Murs said: “I’m massively proud. Joe’s been phenomenal every week, he deserves every moment of it, so well done Joe.”
Must be the luck of the Geordies…
