…Matt Cardle!!! I called it from the beginning! To all the naysayers who said he wasn’t good (or specifically Perez Hilton, who never featured him or any of his performances on his blog – Cher was clearly his favourite), this just shows the best vocalist will win!!
No gimmicks. No frills. Just an awesome vocalist, performer, and nailed every single song during his time on the X-Factor. I knew Matt would win, because he had a massive amount of support from Twitter. Hell, he even had a Twitter account for his hat (@MattCardlesHat), which became his trademark online.
His debut single is When We Collide, which is fantastic. Also, he performed Katy Perry’s smash hit, Firework, which I always thought would be a perfect match for his voice, and he nailed it, of course. Congrats Matt! Well deserved!!
