Samantha Jade Wins The X Factor 2012

Months ago we asked the question, “Who’s next?” and last night we got our answer when Australia’s newest music sensation Samantha Jade was crowned during a star-studded X Factor Grand Final Decider featuring special guests Owl City, Boyz II Men and One Direction. Marking two wins in a row for her mentor Guy Sebastian, Sammi beat out the boy from the bush Jason Owen and our very own boy band The Collective for the 2012 X Factor honours.

All three finalists opened the show in style with a slick black and white music video morphing into an all-out spectacular rendition of David Guetta’s “I Can Only Imagine”. Check it out below!

After the emotional elimination of The Collective, Ronan vowed, "These guys are going to be international stars if I have anything to do with it." Watch this space.Jason and Sammi then revived their songs of the series: a fun-filled performance of “Dancing In The Dark” by Jason and Sammi’s edgy take on Usher’s “Scream”. But, as always, there could only be one winner and after an epic pause from the King of Suspense, Luke Jacobz, it was Sammi’s time to shine. With glitter confetti falling from the ceiling she busted out her brand new single, “What You’ve Done To Me”, which incredibly shot to #1 on the iTunes charts just hours later. In an interesting twist, Sammi’s hit song knocked mentor and friend Guy Sebastian’s new tune, “Get Along”, to #2! The student becomes the master?You can purchase “What You’ve Done To Me” on iTunes right here: Samantha Jade and all of our X Factor finalists for our biggest series yet! Samantha Jade

    It was really great to see that the other contestants genuinely happy about Samantha's win. It's not often you see such a genuine gesture rushing to her to congratulate her in a big way as she comes to the end of her song!

    Samantha Jade is backed up by her new International Fans WORLDWIDE as well as Local fans in Australia, who will spend their/our $$$ on her...We haven't even heard of her until X-FACTOR AU 2012 AUDITION (the people voted - they've chosen their winner to represent X FACTOR AUSTRALIA judges has no control over the PUBLIC votes) People voted - spent money on her texting, calling in to vote and her International fans are broadcasting it on Facebook and voting for her - doing their own marketing to support Samantha she deserves to please no hard feelings for the peoples favorites that weren't able to win's just how it works, we did say if Australia wouldn't vote and support her then her International fans would take her for the win! Be proud Australia! Everybody deserves 2nd chances & this year of 2012 just happens to be her calling and it is her time to SHINE as bright as a STAR! I love it that she has fought her way back, showing us ( International Fans ) just how much Aussie spirit shes got in that petite sexy body of hers. She has the best voice, the best performance and the most marketable package. Anyhow - The collective will also be signed, with a few others. We LOVE You Samantha Jade! :-) Congratulations! We look forward to the success of your career! You hit Number 1 on I-Tunes AGAIN!!!! WE LOVE YOU!
