Today was the final results show of the X Factor and Louis Tomlinson’s last day as judge. Prior to the show, Louis tweeted “What a show it was last night. It’s been an emotional week. Can’t believe it’s almost over. Thank to everyone who has watched and voted so far!” and posted a picture collage saying “Great week”.
The show started with a brief recap of the previous night’s show. They did a taped segment starring Simon’s son, Eric. Then, a bunch of people dressed as sharks appeared onstage for some shark song (yes, you read that right). It was apparently Eric’s new single released under Simon’s Syco Records.
Then it was time for the winner’s singles, which are duets with existing artists.
Anthony sang I Predict a Riot with The Kaiser Chiefs. The judges loved his performance. Louis said he was proud of him and liked the song being more current than the usual X Factor songs.
Ellie Goulding sang her new single. Ellie is rooting for Dalton, which Louis appreciated.
Scarlett sang One More Sleep with Leona Lewis. The crowd really went wild. Louis said how great it’s been to watch her grow.
Nile Rodgers performed next with his band Chic. Acacia and Aaliyah and Misunderstood joined the performance.
Dalton was next. They showed him watching clips of his performances and a message from his sister. Dalton sang Power of Love with James Arthur. The crowd was cheering so loud. Simon called it spectacular. Louis called it a “winner’s performance”.
They recapped the performances and reposted the voting numbers. Take That performed.
Then it was time to announce the winners. Anthony came in 3rd. Dalton won!
Simon complimented Dalton and Louis for what they had accomplished together. Dalton performed the winner’s song once again.
