And the winner of The X Factor 2017 is… Rak-Su!
From an amazing original song in their audition, to a brilliant collab with Naughty Boy and Wyclef Jean, here’s how Rak-Su Became our X Factor UK Champions!
Within the first few minutes of meeting Rak-Su, we were all up and dancing with them. “I’m Feelin’ You” may be the biggest song of the season and with this catchy of a chorus, it’s pretty easy to see why.
It was almost inevitable that the quartet of childhood friends would make it through to Judges’ Houses. But once they got there, they then had to impress Simon, and guest judge Cheryl. Clearly they did just that with another original song and were on their way to live episodes.
Rak-Su then made their live debut with “Mamacita”, another original song that is guaranteed to get any crowd dancing and singing along. After this performance, we were only left with two simple questions… ONE – how does Rak-Su keep writing all these amazing songs and TWO – where can we download them?
With every week of live episodes, Rak-Su continued to dominate the competition one unforgettable original song at a time. “Mona Lisa” not only moved the quartet on to the semi-finals, but also got them the prize fight win of the night.
Finally, after weeks of amazing performances, we were down to The X Factor Grand Finale with Grace Davies battling Rak-Su for the win! This performance featuring Naughty Boy and Wyclef Jean is the one that sealed the deal and the win for Rak-Su! Congratulations, boys! We will add this song onto every single party playlist we can think of.
