Samantha Jade Winner of the The X Factor 2012
The first female to triumph on the series, 25 year old WA singer Samantha Jade has won the 2012 X-Factor title.
As TV Tonight reports
The consummate young singer mentored by Guy Sebastian defeated 18 year old ‘bush hero’ Jason Owen and rabid boyband The Collective.
She becomes the first female to win the talent series in Australia and secures a recording contract and a new car.
Jade had entered the Seven contest as her ‘last shot’ at a music career following thwarted attempts, including former prospects in the US. But her ride to the top wasn’t without challenges, frequently voted in the bottom two by viewers.
Jade herself said ‘I’m so overwhelmed! I am so delighted to be here and never thought I would win. I’ve had the most amazing experience on The X Factor and loved every minute of it,’ she said.”
