Louisa Johnson Is A Very, Very Special X Factor Winner

So we have our X Factor winner! And it’s *drum roll*… Louisa Johnson.

The 17-year-old walked away victorious last night, having beaten Cheryl Fernandez-Versini‘s group Reggie N Bollie in a tense live final.

Both Louisa and her mentor Rita Ora were clearly ecstatic, bursting into tears when hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs announced the news.

And it’s no wonder really. Louisa is the youngest contestant EVER to walk away with the title.

Louisa later wrote on Instagram: ‘OMG. Thank YOU!! U are seriously the most loyal supporters EVER. This was my dream & u have made it come true.’

But unfortunately for the pair, their overexcited faces ended up going a teeny bit viral. They were re-Tweeted thousands of times on Twitter.

Was Louisa offended? Nah. She showed just how much of a good sport when she appeared on judge Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1 show this morning.

Louisa wowed on Saturday night with renditions of I Believe I Can Fly and It’s A Man’s World, the latter being her favourite she’d performed throughout the series.

She also sang her winner’s single Forever Young for the first time.

However, not everything about the teen’s triumph went without a hitch.

Once again, The X Factor came under fire for being fixed when Louisa reportedly Tweeted and deleted about her debut single being out – two DAYS before winning.

The message read: ‘X Factor-winner Louisa Johnson’s new single is out now! Get the winner’s single “Forever Young” on iTunes now.’ Uh-oh.

Louisa Johnson's Tweet This Tweet *could* get The X Factor into a bit of trouble…

 

It’s likely that it was an honest mistake, with the message just being scheduled (with the option of deleting) for the wrong date.

But after a series of awkward gaffes, it’s yet more bad publicity for The X Factor.

The X Factor contestants Louisa Johnson’s fellow contestants were clearly thrilled for her

 

 

At least Louisa’s having a good time, eh?
