To settle the argument, we present the definitive ranking of X Factor winners’ singles, from all 11 years of the TV talent show. Ben Haenow – Something I Need Series: 11 (2014) Original singer: One Republic While we won’t know how Ben’s single charts until Sunday, we really do like his version of ‘Something I Need’ – like Louis Walsh said, it’s almost as if Ryan Tedder wrote it especially for him. Plus it made way for more epic tracks from Tulisa’s Little Muffins, including ‘Wings’ and ‘Salute’ – and for that we salute Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie. Leona Lewis – A Moment Like This Series: 3 (2006) Original singer: Kelly Clarkson UK Chart Position: 1 Written for American Idol champ Kelly Clarkson, ‘A Moment Like This’ had winner’s single stamped all over it, with Leona narrowly missing out on the crown for our best XF debut ever. Alexandra Burke – Hallelujah Series: 5 (2008) Original singer: Leonard Cohen UK Chart Position: 1 Her success was eventually eclipsed by series runners-up JLS, but Alexandra Burke’s take on the Leonard Cohen (or Jeff Buckley, if you’re that way inclined) classic is our most beautiful X Factor winner’s single ever, not to mention the highest selling with 1.28million copies.
