Little Mix win X Factor 2012

Girl band Little Mix became the first group to win X Factor on Sunday, beating Scouse hairdresser and longtime favourite, Marcus Collins in the final. The quartet, aged between 18 and 20, screamed with delight following the announcement of the outcome of a public vote, and performed a cover of Damien Rice’s ‘Cannonball’, which will be their debut single and the likely Xmas No.1.

Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock will enjoy a media frenzy over the coming days, and are guaranteed a recording contract. But, going on to carve out a successful musical career may prove harder if previous X Factor winners, all soloists, are anything to go by.

Sunday’s show, which featured live performances by Coldplay and Westlife before a crowd of around 10,000 at Wembley Arena, brought to an end a series that has seen viewer ratings consistently lower than in 2010.
