The X Factor Winners: Who is the Best Ever Contestant?

Best X Factor Winners from the UK Series

The X Factor UK has just started its 14th season, with a new batch of singers aspiring to be the next X Factor winner. And even though winning the show hasn't necessarily been the best thing to happen to a lot of the contestants in the past, there's no doubt that they are all in it to win it.

But who was the best ever winner of The X Factor, and what about the ones who never made the most of their full potential?  Here, Green Beans takes a look through the top five best winners of the X Factor.

5  Matt Cardle

Winning the public vote in every one of the live weeks, bar one, Matt Cardle pipped Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction in the final to win the 7th series. With a brilliant falsetto, Matt was tipped to make it big, but record sales never really thrived, and it didn't take long for Syco record label to drop him.

4  Alexandra Burke 

Alexandra Burke was one of the more popular winners of the show in 2008, with a near flawless performance in the grand final. Her music career got off to a great start, with big chart hits, but her popularity dwindled somewhat in the years that followed.

3  James Arthur 

Without question the rawest and grittiest of The X Factor winners, James Arthur smashed his way to victory in the 9th series, only to bomb the following year.  Syco dropped him, then took him on again after listening to his new sound a couple of years later. We predict good things from Arthur.

2  Leona Lewis

She cracked America, briefly, with her number one hit, Bleeding Love, and you'd be forgiven for thinking Leona Lewis might be the next superstar.  But she seemed to decline, gradually, to a point where we can't even remember when we last saw the girl.

1  Little Mix

Still the only group to win The X Factor UK, Little Mix were mentored perfectly by Tulisa, and their success since has been incredible.  This popular girl group are growing in performance and popularity, making their rise to the top at a faster pace than Girls Aloud.  Could these four girls break the trend of X Factor winners and stay at the very top?
