Over the weekend, British singer James Arthur was crowned the season nine winner of the X Factor UK! The 24-year-old came out on top and beat off stiff competition from runner-up, Jahmene Douglas. His debut single is a cover of Shontelle‘s hit single “Impossible” and it has already become the fastest-selling X Factor single, reaching 187,000 downloads within 24 hours. I was really rooting for James all along, the boy is consistent with giving me goosebumps on each performance. While I’m not big on covers, James‘ interpretation of “Impossible” is super moving and executed beautifully. I’m looking forward to his first post-win single and debut album next year. What do you guys think?
