Three of the four of The X Factor 2015 judges correctly predicted Louisa Johnson winning tonight.
The annual judges’ predictions on the Xtra Factor see the panelists predict the winner before the live shows start, writing their guess down before it’s sealed until the final night.
This evening after Louisa won this year’s X Factor, the golden envelopes were opened to see what the judges had written.
And it turned out that most of them saw Louisa’s victory coming.
Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Rita Ora ALL correctly predicted that the 17-year-old would win the series before the live shows even began.
Only Nick Grimshaw got it wrong, backing Josh Daniels who didn’t even make the live shows.
Louisa’s victory wasn’t really too surprising to anyone with the teenager having been the favourite to win since the very first episode this year.
Bookies insalled Louisa as their tip waaaay back in August following Louisa’s original audition and her odds have only ever been cut as the series continued.
Speaking just after the result tonight, an emotional Louisa – X Factor’s youngest ever – said: “I really can’t put t it into words, I just feel… it doesn’t even feel real!
“It’s just so mazing. I’m just like… what? It’s just crazy. I just appreciate everyone so much for keeping me here. I have got the most loyal supporters ever, I can’t thank them enough. They’ve obviously done an amazing job.”
The X Factor is back on ITV next year.
