Dami Im Wins The X Factor!


In a live Grand Final decider, 25-year-old Dami Im was crowned the winner of The X Factor 2013, beating off competition from runner-up Taylor Henderson and third placed Jai Waetford.

On winning The X Factor, Dami said, "I don't believe that I've won, this is crazy! I want to win this for people like me who are dags and inspire them to dream big!"

Her mentor Dannii Minogue said, "We're so thankful to everyone who voted for Dami, this has been an incredible experience."

It was an emotional night on The X Factor, with 14-year-old Jai being the first finalist to be eliminated. It was then between Dami and 20-year-old Taylor Henderson, with the public’s votes determining the winner.

Dami wins a recording contract with Sony Music and a management deal. Dami’s winning single, Alive, will be available digitally on iTunes from tonight and be serviced to radio stations across the country.

The X Factor Grand Final show also saw a return from all of the Top 12 finalists, plus huge performances from Katy Perry, Guy Sebastian and Fall Out Boy.

    Great result! Living in Cambodia, I only watched bits here and there. However, from the start when you sung Hero, I could see the winner in you. And then to miss out after Bootcamp - only to be asked back in! Wow! Isn't life strange. Whatever you call it, fate or divine intervention from God, the second chance proves there is no hiding talent. All the best for the future. Love your personality and spark. I know the music industry will try to change you but keep being you - that's what we like.

    I agree Dami deserved to win over the other two contestants...but there was a lot of good talent that was overlooked
