Joe McElderry X Factor 2009 Winner

Filed under: Joe McElderry

X Factor is over for another year, and this year’s winner is Joe McElderry!

Joe McElderry, mentored by Cheryl Cole, was the bookie’s favourite for the final, but took some weeks to come to the attention of the bookies. There were more than 10 million votes for the final, so he had certainly come to the attention of the public!

You can buy the MP3 download of the Climb here now, or you can pre-order the CD of the winner’s single, The Climb which is to be released on Wednesday.

Runner up Olly Murs was gracious in defeat, saying “Joe’s been phenomenal every week. [..] he deserves every minute of it”.

Joe took the time to thank Cheryl Cole, his mentor after the win, and also said “thankyou so much to everyone who voted.”


  1. NOOOO!!!!!!!

  5. December 2010: Joe – who ? Olly – who ? Stacey – who ?
    Jedward still in the headlines.

    The only time the family all went quiet was when Jedward were on. They not could not sing but were entertaining and we enjoyed watching them as a family. The ones that could sing were as entertaining as watching paint dry. One session of Olly doing karaoke and dancing like a lad who had too much to drink at a wedding was enough.

    X Factor please find some real singing talent for 2010 or just finish.

  6. So Peter – let me get this straight:
    You only enjoyed a SINGING competition when non-singers were performing.
    And you say that when the ‘only ones who could sing’ were on it was boring.
    Yet you say that you want them to find some ‘real singing talent for 2010′?
    Apart from contradicting yourself about whether real singers were on the programme – why do you want to see real singers next year since you find them boring?

  7. OMG, i’m so gutted for Olly! :( No matter what, he won according to me. I think Joe is really boring and the right person did not win. Olly your amazing. Keep smiling :) x

  8. I was so angry last night when joe won. Olly sang that song the way it was so suppose to sound.

    Do we really need another pretty boy who can hold a few notes at a time, eh no not really.

    He also killed one of the best journey songs of all time. Mabey Olly should of sang it at least then you would actually feel emotion. Not Feeling it with joe.

    Too up himself like his mentor.

  9. Theresa,

    I have not contradicted myself at all. The people who could sing had no charisma and certainly did not have the X Factor – they were boring. Most people I have talked to in the music profession have said that this was probably the worst X Factor so far for singing talent.Just because people can sing does not mean they have real talent.

    Leona Lewis and Alexandra had the X factor.They have real talent. They are not boring. Simon Cowell desperately needs to find the same level of singing talent for 2010.

    The general consensus about X Factor 2009 is that no one had the X Factor and it was only Jedward that created any kind of excitement and debate.

    To correct you on another point Jedward were not the only act in the Final Twelve who could not sing. You are forgetting Kandy Rain, two members of Miss Frank, Lloyd Daniels and Rikki Loney. Of the others Lucie, Jamie, Olly,Stacey and Danyl had trouble with tuning a number of times. Rachel and Joe were the only two that were able to constantly hold a tune. Rachel made a swift exit and Joe’s voice is not unique and is far too bland.

    To help you understand why I want X Factor to finish if they cannot find some real singing talent for 2010 is that 2009 did have people could sing but they were not talented. I hope this clarifies my statement for you.

    To have a singing competiton of merit you need talented singers. If you thought there was real singing talent in X Factor 2009 there are a lot of people especially music professionals who would disagree with you.

    You are either trying to be controversial or need to concentrate more.

    Peter is clearly saying that the X Factor needs to find real singing talent for 2010 because the people who could sing in X Factor 2009 were bland and did not display the spark that is needed to show that you have the X Factor.

    He is being ironic when he says that Jedward who could not sing were entertaining. The other acts including those that could hold a tune were boring.No one had the X Factor.

    Hopefully this has helped you to understand Peter’s comments.

  11. Theresa, Peter is right. Only Jedward who were the worst of the acts which could not sing created any real spark with the viewers and the Media.

    The fact that Jedward will probably be the most successful act from X Factor 2009 shows that it completely failed as a singing competition.

  12. Lets be honest none of the finalists have really lost,OK Joe has been crowned overall winner with the Guaranteed recording contract but last season only two acts have made there way into the charts last years winner Alexandra Burke of course and JLS but this years show could produce at least five new acts to the charts from the list of finalist,Lucie Jones, Jamie Archer, Lloyd Daniels, John and Edward Grimes, Stacey Solomon, Danyl Johnson, Olly Murs are in the money already the Twins are undoubtedly on the road to some other form of fame other than singing and good luck to them I think this years X Factor to be the best yet.
