2004 Winners Or Losers?

Filed under: 2004 series

G4’s album G4 debued at number one in the UK album charts in March, having sold 200,000 copies in its first week on sale and eventually went on to sell over 1 million - not bad considering that they came second. Album tracks include Bohemian Rhapsody, Nessun Dorma, Everybody Hurts, Circle Of Life and Creep.

Steve Brookstein
After winning The X Factor 2004, Steve went on to have a number one hit with his version of ‘Against All Odds’ a Phil Collins cover. His debut album Heart & Soul reached the top of the UK album chart in May 2005. However, despite these achievements, in an article in The Sun on 15th August, Simon Cowell admitted that G4 were the real winners of last years show because they went on to sell more albums than Steve Brookstein with Steve only having sold 250,000 copies. Cowell reportedly said, when asked if he would consider giving Brookstein a new contract, that he would “have to have a very serious think about it”.
Now it is rumoured that Steve has just been dropped from his record label Sony BMG

In a recent article in The Daily Mail, Steve was quoted as saying that “The X Factor damages your credibility - or perhaps I should say Simon Cowell does. The X Factor is all one big theatre. It’s about killing music to make light entertainment.”


  1. Ref the great steve and his ruined credibility lets face reality steve baby your a club singer you will always be no more then a club singer. xfactor didnt ruin your credibility wake up fella you really dont think you won because of your singing do you. lets look at the results since against all odds and even that a cover tut wakey wakey good looks charm maybe but now the girls are into shayne and your 5 minutes of fame has gone you losing the recording contract has only gone to prove as a club singer you got a career. but the recording studios are only protecting us from another wanna be superstar who really never had the x factor just the looks stop whinging guy and face reality times change and life goes on and your just not and will never be x factor material as far as singing concerned you had a lucky break but its all over now so stop crying

  2. What’s that Colin?

    Steve has integrity- told Mr Cowell, who insisted on him doing covers for his 1st AND 2nd albums, he wouldn’t and they parted company.

    Steve has a new single coming out in June 2006, an album in Spetmeber and a tour in October.
