To celebrate the new series of The X Factor starting tonight (Saturday) I though what better way to get the series off to a good start and celebrate my all-time top 10 favourite auditions throughout the whole time its been on our TV screens.
So without further ado, here I countdown my top 10 favourite auditions so far from the very beginning...
Number 10 - Leona Lewis (Series Three)
Starting from the top and one of the contestants I can ever remember is - Leona Lewis.
Leona Lewis auditioned for the third series in 2006 and sung "Over the Rainbow" for her audition to judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne. She was placed in the 16-24's category, with Simon Cowell as her mentor.
Leona sensationally won the show and soon later released her winner's single, cover of Kelly Clarkson's song, 'A Moment Like This' which was released just in time for the Christmas number 1 spot on 17 December 2006.
From what I can remember having definitely being my favourite to win the show, my all-time favourite song of hers is 'Forgive me' which was released a year after her winning victory in 2007.
Number 9 - Leon Jackson (Series Four)
In 2007, Leon Jackson auditioned for the fourth series of The X Factor. During the show, he was mentored his way through by Dannii Minogue as well as performing a duet with her of Kylie Minogue's song ' Better The Devil You Know' on the semi finals of the competition.
Leon became the winner of the show, receiving a £1 million recording deal with Simon Cowell's record label, Syco Music.
Number 8 - Alexandra Burke (Series Five)
Alexandra Burke auditioned for the second series of The X Factor in 2005 (which although Shayne Ward took the crown).
Alexandra went on to seek professional singing lessons over the next three years in the hope to take part again which she gave the show another shot in 2008 and eventually won it performing her finals winner single 'Hallelujah' which became the Christmas number 1 top single.
Since then, Alexandra has taken a different approach to staying in the spotlight by appearing in various musicals such as The Bodyguard which was a second huge hit of her music career.
Number 7 - Olly Murs (Series Six)
In 2009, Olly Murs auditioned for the sixth series of The X Factor, performing Stevie Wonder's "Superstition". (Literally a huge favourite audition of mine in history!)
Although Olly didn't win the show, He became second place to Joe McElderry when he performed he hoped to take the winner's single "The Climb".
Since then, Olly Murs has become a huge hit all over the country with 4 successful albums including, Right Place Right Time and Couldn't Be Better. Olly has also had major stints on the X Factor as the host of the spin off show 'The Xtra Factor alongside presenter Caroline Flack.
Number 6 - Cher Lloyd (Series Seven)
Cher Lloyd finished fourth in the seventh series of The X Factor.
My most memorable performance of hers was 'Just Be Good To Me' originally produced by S.O.S Band. I remember being literally her biggest fan of hers on the show.
Cher was then eliminated in fourth place, having received the fewest public votes, losing out to the winner, Matt Cardle.
Since The X Factor, Cher Lloyd has hit it big in America and has made a successful career for herself in the states. Her very first album 'Sticks and Stones' which features her hit single 'Swagger Jagger peaked at number four in the UK album chart.
Number 5 - Amelia Lily (Series Eight)
Lily auditioned for The X Factor in early 2011.
She sang Erma Franklin's "Piece of My Heart" and won praise from all four judges at her audition.
Although being eliminated from the show in the very first week, Lily then became the public's choice of wildcard voted back into the competition half-way through the live shows.
On 4 December, she won a place in the final along with Little Mix and Marcus Collins but took third place in the final.
Amelia Lily has since moved stateside to persure her music career.
Number 4 - James Arthur (Series Nine)
In 2012, James Arthur auditioned for the ninth series of The X Factor.
My all-time favourite song he performed whilst on the show was 'Hometown Glory'. James was most probably the most I had ever supported on the X Factor.
James won The X Factor on 9 December 2012, beating Jahméne Douglas in the final two with his winner's single 'Impossible'. (I still enjoy listening to that song now).
James has since appeared to have taken a back step from his music career. I hope he makes a huge comeback soon though.
Number 3 - Tamera Foster (Series Ten)
Tamera Foster originally auditioned as part of duo Silver Rock with a woman called Jerrie Bafundila, better known as Jerrie Dila. but the judges split them up into solo artists after rejecting them as a duo.
Tamera finished in fifth place of the competition and becoming the last of Nicole Scherzinger's acts to leave the competition.
My favourite performace of hers was when she sang 'No More Drama by Mary J Blige. One of the best performances I've watched throughout the shows.
The next year on March, she confirmed that she had been signed to Simon Cowell's record label Syco Music.
Number 2 - Fleur East (Series Eleven)
In June 2014, Fleur East auditioned for the eleventh series of The X Factor. She sang John Legend's "Ordinary People" in her audition.
Fleur was my huge favourite of series Eleven. Her voice is incredible and her rapping is awesome.
Fleur proceeded to the over 25 Category before winning the show, before unfortunately becoming second place in the final to winner Ben Haenow.
Since then Fleur has had a top selling album named Love, Sax and Flashbacks. I bought the album last year, It's definitely one of my favourite albums since James Arthur won.
Number 1 - Louisa Johnson (Series Twelve)
And last but not least... My favourite X Factor contestant of all time goes to Louisa Johnson who won last year's show. That was an easy win, totally! One of my favourites for sure.
Louisa competed in the girls category with rivals, Lauren Murray, Monica Michael and Kiera Withers before being crowned the winner of the competition to which is one winner I'll never forget.
My favourite all-time performance of hers has to be 'Billie Jean'. The vocals to that particular song was incredible.
After winning The X Factor, Louisa released her winner's single 'Forever Young' and soon released a huge number 1 chart song 'Tears featuring Clean Bandit a few months ago. One of my favourite singles from an X Factor winner!
