The first part of the final took part on Saturday 10th December, which saw 17-year-old Amelia Lily receiving the fewest votes and finishing in 3rd place.
The next part of the final took place on Sunday 11th December, where Little Mix and 23-year-old Marcus Collins fought head to head for the £1m recording contract.
They both sung a cover of Damien Rice’s “Cannonball” for their winning single, with Little Mix’s version becoming the one that would ultimately win them the competition.
Little Mix began their X Factor journey individually as solo artists. They were put together as a group at boot camp when they originally named themselves “Rhythmix”. However, during the live shows, they were forced to change their name after Brighton charity Rhythmix threatened to take legal action.
“Cannonball” will be available to download at midnight on the 12th December.
