17 year old Louisa Johnson has been crowned winner at the just ended 2015 X Factor UK.
In a competition that seemed fierce but predictable, Louisa was crowned winner over Ghanaian show stoppers Reggie N Bollie.
She will now receive a recording contract and will release her winner’s single ‘Forever Young’, which she performed for the first time on tonight’s show.
Johnson was praised by her mentor Rita Ora following her victory, who declared that she was “gorgeous”.
And Johnson herself was almost speechless, saying: “I’ve been waiting for this moment for so many years”.
Over two million votes were cast during the final overall.
Congratulations to the Reggie N Bollie especially as their journey sounded a joke to many but their persistence put them as finalists of the one of UK fiercely contested musical shows.
Other performers on the night included Adele, One Direction and Coldplay.
