MATT TERRY BEATS FINNISH SONGSTRESS TO THE POST AS X FACTOR SUPREMO 2016
It was a thrilling finale this weekend as the Bromley singer Matt Terry won the much sought after recording contract with Simon Cowell’s Syco record label.
Despite serious competition from Saara Aalto, Terry who was mentored by Nicole Scherzinger was visibly shocked as he fell to the floor after hearing his name live on the show as the winner.
Simon Cowell promised him all the support he needs from his label to make his dreams come true.
After the excitement and adrenaline that was bursting from the arena, Terry then took to the stage to perform the winner’s single which was written by Ed Sheehan. ‘When Christmas Comes Around’, is a festive ballad and was co-written by Amy Wadge. Sources say that it was written just two weeks ago before being sent to Cowell for approval and sign off.
Who’d have thought that the twenty three year old waiter who left his job because his girlfriend dumped him, would walk away with the crown. However, according to the The Sun newspaper they are indeed back living together now (yup never saw that one coming…). However, some viewers tweeted that they apparently saw Matt kiss fellow ex-contestant, 18 year old Freddy Parker on stage in the over excitement of victory on stage. Who knows but from this point onwards poor Matt will be thrown into the world wind media frenzy where every aspect of his life will be dissected and debated in the digital landscape. (We hope he’s got a thick skin).
Matt learnt his craft at the D&B Academy of Performing Arts in Kent, which you may recognise as the school has become the setting for the E4 reality show ‘Stage School’.
Whatever happens, it’s going to be a pretty crazy Christmas for this lucky young lad as he vies for pop superstardom.
