The X Factor 2010 winner is Matt Cardle. Having been a clear favourite in recent weeks, it is no surprise that Mat has won.
In a tightly run contest Matt Cardle narrowly came out on top, Rebecca Ferguson finished in second place with the boyband One Direction in third.
The X Factor Winners single is Many Of Horror by Biffy Clyro
However the real winner of X Factor is Simon Cowell. Regardless of whether Matt makes a success, Simon will make a considerable amount of money from the series. Cowell will no doubt sign One Direction, who are bound to be a massive hit with teenage girls. They surely have a long career ahead of them. It has surely done them well not winning, as they do not have the pressure of releasing an album as quickly as possible in order to maximize sales. I fear that like many previous X Factor Male winner that Matt will have a short career.
